In the wave of instant classics directed by Clint Eastwood, this may have been his best. I originally put this movie off my list to watch mainly because I felt it was one of those films that I "had to be in the mood" to watch. Man was I wrong. As much as it is dark, Mystic River tells so powerful a story, I could not help but wonder why I had waited so long to see it. Sean Penn turns in another am... read more

My favourite Clint Eastwood film so far...

I love this film!!! Mystic River is a fantastic murder mystery that is filmed with a lot of events occuring. The dialogue is something that I found quite disturbing because of the way the characters were around each other. It is one of those films that shocks you at the beginning and shocks you at the end of it too. I love films like this that keeps you interested all the way through it. Finding o... read more

“you can sum up Mystic River by two things only, weird and far away from reality.

i mean it's like watching a movie by Paul Thomas Anderson.

because everything that the characters do in this movie is the exact opposite from what people do in these types of situations.

my point is you can't relate to these characters actions at all. a man just told his wife that he killed the wrong guy, and the wife tell him, "that what kings do", WHAT.

and the innocent man who got killed confessed about a crime he didn't commit for no obvious reason, and the people who actually did the murder have no motive at all.

and it's keep getting weirder and weirder to the point that you keep scratching your head after the movie ends.

i mean seriously Clint ” read more

"great acting but seen too many crime shows so this movie seemed like a slow episode of dealing with a crime and aftermaths. I watched it little too late. though kudos to Sean Penn for great acting. Jimmy: We bury our sins here, Dave. We wash them clean."
