A good movie

7 years, 11 months ago at Oct 13 21:05
It has been a while since I have seen this flick (I'm actually pretty sure that I actually saw it in the movie theater when it was released in fact). Anyway, it is one of the more obscure and less ambitious features directed by Oliver Stone but I thought it was thoroughly enjoyable. Basically, instead of the rather heavy historical and/or political dramas which had become Oliver Stone's specialty,... read more

One of the best Oliver Stone films, and definitely one of my favorite femme fatale movies. What an underrated gem.

Description: A noirish departure for issue-oriented director Oliver Stone, U-TURN stars Sean Penn as Bobby, a gambler on the run who has the misfortune to have his radiator hose blow in a godforsaken Arizona hole-in-the-wall. He quickly meets the stunning Grace McKenna (Jennifer Lopez), and they go to her place to become better acquainted. When her husband, real estate king Jake (Nick Nolte), catches the two together in the bedroom, they fight, but at a later meeting, he proposes that Bobby kill his wife for a reasonable sum. At first the gambler turns him down, but when all his money is torn to shreds in a freak accident, he realizes that h ... (more)

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (779 movies items)

" Based on the novel “Stray Dogs”, by John Ridley and starring Sean Penn. You think that you had a bad day? Well thank God that you’re not Bobby Cooper. A gambler who is in way over his head, after being stuck in a desert town, and is asked to kill a man’s wife. Reaction by critics to the film was mixed. Roger Ebert gave the film one half stars out of four, deeming it a "repetitive, pointless exercise in genre filmmaking, the kind of film where you distract yourself by making a list of"

" Date: 2/24/2020 Viewed: Sony Crackle Re-Watch Note: I decided to rewatch this movie because I was in the mood to revisit it. Over 20 years later, I still enjoy this movie a lot. For a movie that is over 2 hours long, it was paced pretty well. This movie didn't have a single boring moment that made me want to look at my phone during the movie. The movie has a great cast of characters that I find to be pretty memorable. Sean Penn's character in this movie is awesome because I like that he kee"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (250 movies items)

"6.7, PC U-Turnin alussa heiluva kamera ja rakeinen kuva pistävät ikävästi silmään, vaikka myöhemmin näistä päästäänkin aika tehokkaasti eroon. Hahmot tuntuvat todellisuudesta irrallisilta, mikä varmasti on ihan tarkoituksenmukaista Pennin hahmon hämmennyksen luomisen kannalta, mutta mielestäni tämä ennemmän syö elokuvan uskottavuutta kuin edesauttaa mitään."

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: April (28 movies items)

"April 22 "You like Patsy Cline? I just love her. I wonder how come she don't put out no more new records." "Because she's dead." "Oh... that's sad. Don't that make you sad?" "I've had time to get over it." Out of all of Oliver Stone's films, this one is his most underrated and seems to be the black sheep in his filmography. It's definitely different from his other movies, but it's still great. I loved how progressively dark this movie got as it went on, the well-written script and there were"
