A well-executed scene can be followed by another where Clark shows no sense of the tone of which he'd just been in such tight control.
A routine genre film.
It's hard for Another Day in Paradise to bring anything new to the well-worn road traveled by thugs on the run. But director Larry Clark and an energetic cast keep things jumping in this morality tale about the down and dirty.
As contradictory as it is energetic, the film takes as many risks as its people do and as a result strikes a highly contemporary nerve.
This is not a movie for everyone, and I'm not certain that I even want to recommend it with strong reservations.
Director Larry Clark has served up another gritty look at lowlife scum, but the results this time aren't nearly as fascinating.
This is a strong, powerful movie.
As close to 'mainstream' as Clarks' ever going to get ... which isn't much.
With talent like James Woods involved on both sides of the camera, I expect more quality.
Another Day In Paradise is so generally overwrought that the willing suspension of disbelief is not really an option. On the other hand, you may find yourself caring about the characters.
Woods is great as usual.
Larry Clark's second film is more conventional than his controversial debut (Kids), but it's still intensely watchable and well-made. When walking us through the typical crime-drama routine, this film is interesting, but it is the character dynamics and the dark revelatory moments that stick. Aesthetically it's a sleek picture, infused with Clark's trademark documentary-style photography. The script has minor issues, especially with its ending, but the performances are what stand out and make it so exceedingly powerful. James Woods got all the praise from critics, but it also features top-notch acting from Vincent Kartheiser, Natasha Gregson Wagner and Melanie Griffith. It's a film that consumes its audience throughout the duration of its runtime, and leaves a lasting impression despite its shortcomings. Very well-directed by Larry Clark.
What a weird-ass film. But it was better than some movies I've seen.
I always want more Larry Clark despite the fact that his films tend to reveal the rather disturbing underbelly of America. This isn't "Kids" but it is a still a great pic.
Really sickening of darker group of a drug addicts and bit explicit sex scenes of young junkie couples that filmmaker Larry Clark made including "Bully". (Really disappointed with DVD didn't work with use English substitles properly because that still has shown at the back cover - that gotta be kidding!)
