Critic Reviews for Islander
A noble entry into the real world of timeless and truly independent American cinema.
Unfortunately, the storyfollows too uninvolving a course to make the movie as powerful as it could have been. But that shouldn't stop audiences drawing satisfaction from its textures.
A small, plaintive, modestly made film about how one bad decision can wreck a life.
This simple, classic story is enlivened with well-described characters and credible emotions that make us empathize with the motives and decision of all the characters.
The simple images and unobtrusive style have an authenticity that overcomes the rougher performances and folksy fringes of the drama...
The Islander places its generic, troubled-guy plot within a small lobstering community on an island off the coast of Maine.
Audience Reviews for Islander
I was amazed at this little find...I was browsing the shelves at the local library and this DVD caught my eye. At first glance, it wouldn't have been a movie that I'd have put on my list of things to watch, but I'm glad I took the time to find it. The scenery and cinematography was beautiful. The movie and the storyline was heartbreaking and has a sad undertone to it, but it was worth it. So, read the film info and check it out for yourself. Personally, I liked it more than I thought I would...
The film starts out very promising, but about halfway through it gets bogged down a bit and is a little too slow moving. It is well acted by all, well photographed as well. It?s a good story, it?s just not that exciting.
Some people need anger mangement and he did for sure. I changed the lives of many but his little girl hurt the worst.
