A good movie

About 10 years ago, almost out of nowhere, Todd Field, an actor with a rather unremarkable career, released this directing debut and it reached some impressive critical acclaim, especially at the Sundance Film Festival. With this in mind, I was really eager to check this flick. Eventually, I thought it was indeed a really solid drama but there were some aspects that did bother me. Still, the actor... read more

Description: When a film with such emotional resonance and visual poise as In the Bedroom makes it to the screen, it seems an unexpected gift meant to remind us of the medium's possibility for sensitivity and epiphany. First-time director Todd Field, who adapted the film from a story by Andre Dubus with screenwriter Rob Festinger, quietly observes the loss, rage, and inexorable desire for revenge that follows the murder of a 21-year-old son. The film opens with Frank (Nick Stahl), back from college for the summer, taking up with Natalie (Marisa Tomei), a slightly older, sexually alluring woman with two boys and an estranged husband prone to ...

35 From 1: My Favorite Films From 2001 (35 movies items)

"This here is one of those independent type of films that actors love so much because it allows them to really act in the kind of dramatic roles that will hopefully garner many accolades from critics and awards shows. As anyone can see by the way it gets desribed in it's reviews... "expertly crafted and performed... a quietly wrenching portrayal of grief", "the most evocative, the most mysterious, the most inconsolably devastating film", or "an achievement as a perfectly consummated marria"

"First viewing - May 20th This wasn't the most uplifting way to kick off my Friday night, but with all the films leaving Netflix at the end of the month I had to start somewhere. I felt like this was a little misleading, because it starts off like the younger couple is the film's center but then it turns out the older couple is. It's an interesting approach, but I felt like it could have been handled better at least. The story is interesting, though I wouldn't say it connected with me deeply. Th"
