Spooky Southern Gothic

Sam Raimi avoids the camp of the "Evil Dead" trilogy to deliver some serious scares in "The Gift," a Southern-Gothic ESP thriller that stars Cate Blanchett in the role of Annie, a psychic living in a small town.

When local flake Jessica King (Katie Holmes) gets murdered, Annie's sixth sense acts up, leading the authorities to one man- resident wife-beater and town redneck Donnie... read more

Before making the Spider-Man trilogy and becoming one of the most successful mainstrean directors, Sam Raimi made this moody super-natural thriller. It is also interesting to point out that Billy Bob Thornton did write this movie (maybe people tends to forget it but Thornton got his breakthrough with his directing and writing and not actually as an actor).

"14.7. The Giftin katsominen oli hyvin tärkeää, koska olen nähnyt sen joskus kauan kauan sitten eikä minulla ollut sille pisteitä. Uusintakatselulla tajusin, ettei tämmöinen kama kiinnosta minua yhtään minkään vertaa. TV-tallennuksessa parasta oli loppuratkaisun jälkeen tullut mainostauko, jonka jälkeen elokuva kesti ehkä kaksi minuuttia. "

"Possibly my least favorite Cate Blanchet films, who is one of my favorite actresses. It had a hell of a cast, in fact, besides Keanu's attempt at acting."

Spooky Southern Gothic

“Sam Raimi avoids the camp of the "Evil Dead" trilogy to deliver some serious scares in "The Gift," a Southern-Gothic ESP thriller that stars Cate Blanchett in the role of Annie, a psychic living in a small town.

When local flake Jessica King (Katie Holmes) gets murdered, Annie's sixth sense acts up, leading the authorities to one man- resident wife-beater and town redneck Donnie Barksdale (Keanu Reeves.) Of course, Donnie's not the one who done it, and with her power under scrutiny, Annie must find the real killer before she, too, becomes a victim.

The strength of this movie is that it avoids the pitfalls of modern horror films. First of all, Annie isn't the usual ditzy, flaky, slutty heroine, who along with her group of dumb friends has a total IQ of 50. She behaves i” read more

It is also interesting to point out that Billy Bob Thornton did write this movie (maybe people tends to forget it but Thornton got his breakthrough with his directing and writing and not actually as an actor). Anyway, there are many things to enjoy here. First of all, Raimi knows how to direct a thriller and the whole thing was really a nice moody affair. Then, there was a very nice cast (Cate Blanchett, Giovanni Ribisi, Keanu Reeves, Katie Holmes, Greg Kinnear, Hilary Swank, J.K. Simmons) and they all delivered some solid performances. It was above all pretty neat to see actors such as Keanu Reeves, Hilary Swank or even Katie Holmes to play a” read more

My Movie Diary 2011 (279 movies items)

"7.25 It’s almost a non-Sam Raimi movie. That Cate Blanchett really transformed in such a heavy role that if had written more forcefully, would’ve been Oscar-worthy. But this is a Sam Raimi movie after all. And yes, the goofy characters are present, they were only a little serious: take Keanu Reeves’ wife-beating redneck, Hilary Swank’s thrash-beaten wife, and Giovanni Ribisi’s crazy, abused, time bomb. Whether its really great method acting or over-acting, stare at them longer and you"

"I've always loved this movie. It portrays a town in the deep South with both gritty realism and a sense of mystery. This clip shows Keanu Reeves as Donnie Barksdale. He does an amazing job portraying the penultimate redneck. In my opinion, it is -- by far -- his best role ever. "

"Home - Rewatch Blanchett is great in this, but it's got a languid, glacial, tone which means that it's outlived its welcome by the last half hour. "
