Critic Reviews for Dallas 362
While Dallas 362 ultimately lacks the heft to make it anything more than an actors' showcase and Hollywood calling card, it does reveal a nascent talent for Caan.
Caan's directorial debut is eager to please, with flashy montage sequences, lots of colourful character bits ... black humour and a punk/blues score from the likes of Soledad Brothers and White Stripes.
Dallas 362 is basically a road movie that doesn't really go anywhere.
Mr. Caan's debut film is not quite a whole thing, but it offers up enough promising fragments to make his sophomore effort worth watching for.
Audience Reviews for Dallas 362
[font=Century Gothic]"Dallas 362" is about best friends Rusty(Shawn Hatosy) and Dallas(Scott Caan). They have been best friends since Rusty moved to Los Angeles from Texas following the death of his father. Rusty's mother, Mary's(Kelly Lynch) sole occupation seems to be bailing the two pals out of jail after whatever altercation they have just gotten into. Mary is also dating a psychologist(Jeff Goldblum) who agrees to see her son on a professional basis. [/font]
[font=Century Gothic]Admittedly "Dallas 362" does tread over familiar ground but it is well directed along with excellent performances and authentic looking settings. I especially liked that it handled the psychology sessions with a lack of irony unlike so many other programs and movies recently. This is not to say there is not humor here, there is. It is just used wisely.[/font]
Interesting and funny movie. I loved how laid-back and casual the characters were. And it didn't hurt that I got to stare at Jeff Goldblum and Scott Caan shirtless =)
Didn't like it; utterly pretentious. Goldblum was the only good thing, but he's always good. Val Lauren and his awful Ratso Rizzo impersonation was the nadir.
