Movie Info

Stormy Monday is a four-person character study in which style is all that matters. This tautly constructed, deftly executed crime thriller is set in economically depressed Newcastle England. Sting plays Finney, a relatively honest Newcastle jazz-club owner who crosses the path of crass American gangster Cosmo (Tommy Lee Jones). Flaunting his wealth at every opportunity, Cosmo wants to involve Finney in a land development deal -- if only he'll give up his club. Both men are enamored of Kate

All visual flash and no script, with comatose performances to boot.

Mix American gangsters, molls and majorettes with Polish avant-garde jazz musicians against a Newcastle background - and what you've got is a curious homage to B movie Hollywood and the rain-washed neon of the pulps.

Mr. Figgis, who is a musician as well as a film maker, brings the place, the plot and the film's haunting characters vibrantly to life. What's more, he makes them irresistibly interesting.

It is all style and promise, a come-on that keeps on coming on but never satisfies. The Big Tease.

Jones works his machismo persona into a lather, but it's unclear what he's doing in this movie, so he's more a source of campy fun than menace.

"Stormy Monday" is about the way light falls on wet pavement stones, and about how a neon sign glows in a darkened doorway.

Atmospheric.

Shadows on the Wall

A strong exercise in mood early in Mike Figgis's career.

October 7, 2003
KFOR Channel 4 News

An atmospheric mix of urban grit and northern noir assembled with the artful imagery and moody timbre we've come to expect from Mike Figgis.
