Dark and disturbing
A disturbing, powerful film with well deserved Oscar wins for both Sean Penn and Tim Robbins. Beautifully directed by Clint Eastwood, this film tackles difficult issues including child abuse, murder, police corruption and the treatment of people with mental health issues. Tim Robbins plays an emotionally damaged man Dave, who was abused as a child, and has mental health issues. As in real life, this colours the way he is viewed and treated by others, including his friends and wife; so much so that he is made a scapegoat and sacrificial lamb. Sean Penn is dominant throughout as the confident but grieving Jimmy, elevated to the untouchable status by both the police, his community and wife, who forgive him everything even when he does the unthinkable.
Mystic River (DVD2004)
this is a gritty drama with powerhouse performances by the lead actors well directed by clint eastwood. this movie is a must for lovers of gritty dramas, not family entertainment but a good adult evenings viewing. sean penn in the lead role acted well within his bounderies showing he could still eclipse de-nero or pacino as one of the all time greats. watching the movie the locations look gritty and real just as those areas are portraid in tv programmes like law and order etc. the movie has real emotinal impact and rivals its contemporaries by its content and great acting. as he progresses clint eastwood is truly becoming one of the best modern directors today his feel for the industry and how to tell a good story is second to none. i am pleased to have this modern classic in my dvd collection and advise people to have a look and judge it themselves.Read full review
