First let me say I love movies & can usually find something good about each one, but not this one. This was so bad, I had to force myself to finish it just to see if there was any redeeming value. No, there was not. The story is barely there, the acting is horrible and the \"special\" effects looked like something you would see in a high school play. This was not worth my time or my $5.
Because dark secrets always summon flashbacks, the telling of Tom's plunges us back to Greenwich Village, circa 1973. Sideburns sprout, classic rock proliferates and lapels run amok. Then the horror really begins.
Aronofsky, who has parlayed this movie's Sundance success into two Hollywood deals, is that rare indie filmmaker who doesn't want to make hip romantic sitcoms. He's a genuine experimenter with a spooky visual style.
This is such an oddball movie I can't believe I sat through it all. The way that this is shot is at times disturbing. Near the last seen of the movie he drills a hole in his head if that tells you anything. If you get nervous easily you won't want to watch this it will make you feel crazy mostly by the way it's sot but by the story also. Not very much talking in this movie but alot of loud sounds.
Three movie was all over the place. Whoever edited this movie must have been on acid. Didn't make sense, I'm all for weird movies but this one was just ridiculous. Don't waste you're time. Wish I could return this movie for the $5.50 I paid for it
Some actors don't need top-shelf material. Just the pleasure of their company is enough. And so Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin turn the insubstantial Stand Up Guys into solid entertainment.
