A True Grind

1 year, 6 months ago at Jan 26 14:46
Mendelson and Reynolds make a decent duo in this formulaic movie that has the usual frustrations that come with gamblers.  It's a true grind, so at least the title is accurate. Ryan Fleck does a fine job at the helm, but he had a lot of promise as a young filmmaker with 'Half Nelson' and 'Sugar'. He seems to be taking a step back here.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- December 2015 (38 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 49min. First Viewing Directors Boden and Fleck (Half Nelson) once again extend a humanist eye to a couple of downtrodden characters in the exceptional Mississippi Grind. The script is delicate and subtle, until falls apart (a bit) in the last act, but it's the performances that linger once the movie is over. Ryan Reynolds does some of his finest work here, balancing smug and vulnerable with aplomb, though it's Ben Mendelsohn who owns the movie with his sensitive worker as a gambling a"

Involving gambling drama

“"We go down the Mississippi, but we hit up all the action!"

The latest feature to be written and directed by the filmmaking team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson), 2015's Mississippi Grind is old-fashioned all the way through to its core, evoking motion pictures from the '60s and '70s with its unhurried pacing and beautifully filmic cinematography. Taking notable inspiration from the likes of Five Easy Pieces and 1974's The Gambler, this is a motion picture about gambling, but it's not concerned with the usual glamour associated with Las Vegas or Atlantic City. Instead, Mississippi Grind is more dramatic, providing an unusually solemn, incisive examination of a potentially destructive hobby. The film's appeal is not derived from casino action, but rather from the interpl” read more
