Complex story

on 10/5/2013

the graffitti artworks in this movie were really amazing. what a sad and hopeless story. again, the majority americans are struggling while the politicians are bragging that america is the most powerful and the richest nation on the planet. all the roles were played wonderfully realistic and so naturally performed, a great achievment here. this is a movie turned out to be almost great but also very dark. i couldn't say i enjoyed it because it's a very sad plot

Reviews
ReviewSource eFilmCritic.com
Review The entire cast is excellent. Anne Heche is given a great role to play, never making Sharon wishy washy nor too strong. Her only concern is her husband William, and Heche is believable. While some of the roles are obvious villains, Frankenheimer keeps everyone reined in and does not let one actor overshadow another. Jackson and MacLachlan's final scenes are strong, but they do step into melodrama with a hand hold.

ReviewSource The Movie Hamlet
Review The riot was previously treated in the TV movie Attica (1980) and this version doesn't quite show why Mr. Frankenheimer once was a big name in television, but it might prove to some people why he's back making TV movies. MacLachlan's character along with his family remain fairly obscure, but the surroundings are credibly recreated and it is interesting to see how the riot changes people. So who should see this film? Those who like Mr. Forrest: he's the standout in the cast.
