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.

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.
