Charlie Countryman Reviews

June 28, 2017
To say it's one of the more important films to surface this year wouldn't be an understatement, but it wouldn't be an overstatement, either.

This is a weird and self-indulgent affair that is easy to mock but that, just occasionally, captures the romantic feel of the equally pretentious but magical Leos Carax films of the late 1980s.

Shia LaBeouf is well-cast in this freewheeling combination of comedy, romance and action. He plays a scruffy guy with no plans and nothing to lose, lost in a strange culture while falling in love with the wrong woman.

The culture clash between the average middle American and the rest of the world is used to entertaining effect in this kinetic crime thriller.

Embrace the film's brazen weirdness (and forgive its inconsistent tone) and you'll find an off-kilter romance in the vein of True Romance or Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

LaBeouf, who throws himself whole-heartedly into every role regardless of its worth, is a fearless and fascinating actor, and his sincerity holds the entire sleazy mess together.

Offbeat, Bucharest-set, film-noir romance with music by Moby.
November 15, 2013
Not a homerun, but Shia LaBeouf never lets his reckless passion fail.

'Charlie Countryman' is rarely gripping, but its enigmatic nature and overt charm should be enough to keep minds from wandering.
November 15, 2013
There's underworld intrigue, and Bucharest gets to show itself off nicely.
November 15, 2013
Engaging and diverting, a movie that never quite goes where you expect it to - even when it shows you the ending right at the start.
November 14, 2013
Thanks to a perfectly-matched lead, Shia LaBeouf, the movie makes enough impact to justify its existence.
November 14, 2013
Unexpectedly funny, consistently engrossing.
November 11, 2013
Say what you will about Transformers Boy, he's making offbeat, almost pre-"Pirates" Depp choices in roles these days.
November 10, 2013
Charlie Countryman is a mature tall-tale that will play to the fantasies of certain generations, but might be a little too farfetched for more conservative viewers.
February 26, 2013
A gripping, violent film that owes an unabashed debt to the Tarantino-penned love-in-low-places story True Romance.
January 25, 2013
With a scruffy demeanor and wide-eyed enthusiasm, LaBeouf projects a degree of emotional recklessness that's both disarming and disconcerting to watch.
January 24, 2013
Far from perfect, but very stylish. The blending of music and hyper-kinetic imagery is top notch.
