A story about this — 6 years ago
I see Edward Norton in a cowboy outfit with a gun, I want to see the movie. Maybe I am Pavlov dog, but that is how it is. Unfortunately this movie had very little guns and was very slow. A psycological plot without the thriller part. Some moments of insight, but mostly art house wanking. I was not in the mood for arthouse last night. One highlight was the sparseness of the dialogue. Characters said very few words and didn’t try to be smarter than real people. At one point after the sister has been missing, the father is talking to the son:
F: What do you love about your sister?
S: I don’t know. What do you?
F: I don’t know, the whole package I guess.
That is how men really talk about their feelings. Or don’t talk.
If you like Edward Norton, you will like this movie as he is very Ed. But he is not Hollywood Ed, he is complicated arthouse ed. Don’t expect Fight Club or American History X.
I rate the movie 2 of 5 stars.
