Mystic River (2003)
USA / English
"We bury our sins, we wash them clean. "With a childhood tragedy that overshadowed their lives, three men are reunited by circumstance when one loses a daughter.
The strongest American movie since American Beauty
Mr. Eastwood has made a film of true and honest art. A film that looks up
Shakespear and actually does him justice. The depth and emotion that is in
each and every scene is remarkable. All the Performances are for the ages.
Mr. Penn creates a man that is deeply flawed and yet totally human. Mr.
Bacon digs into a man's soul that has dealt with guilt and loss. Mr.
provides a man that is a child in mind and an adult in actions that is
cartoonish or ironic. The amazing Mr. Guiry makes Brendon something for
ages, a teen that is not a illustration of a teen but rather a person that
has complex emotions and emotional reactions (he should win the oscar, or
least get a nomination). Ms. Gay Harden never sinks to cliches for a
moment in her playing of a woman that can not trust the man she loves, yet
still loves him. Ms. Linney brings to life a woman that is truely Lady
The music, Editing, and camera work are all exceltent as well. Mr.
Helgeland's screenplay is bound for oscar gold.
Great job to all involved! This is a must see for any movie lover or
film patron in general.
