Flesh And Bone Reviews

  • Sep 11, 2018

    Written and directed by Steve Kloves with the movie opening with a gruesome killing involving a slaughter of a family executed by James Caan and a young boy. At this point viewers are unbeknownst in terms of what kind of a relationship he has with this child. The movie then jumps to many years later as time has passed, we then get to see Arliss Sweeney played by Texas man Dennis Quaid as he is filling vending machines all across the area. Who eventually bonds with a young woman named Kay played by Meg Ryan who is supposed to be a performer. They then strike up a relationship with viewers wondering whether the 2 characters had ever met before, as well as wondering when they are going to meet with the James Caan character again.

    Well acted and scripted suspense drama that is more about character development than action, a pleasant change from the usual. Unsusal roles for both Meg Ryan and Gwyneth Paltrow. Beautifully filmed.

    This was an interesting movie. It has some solid performances and features Gwyneth Paltrow in one of her first roles. It's not going down as a classic must see, but still a nice paced movie that your not quite sure where it's headed.

    The twist and turns in this thriller make no sense and lay low what could have been a nice movie.

    There's no real love for any of the characters within this moody film with plenty of names. Dennis Quaid comes off slightly better than usual, but that's more to do with the fact he has less lines to deliver given his character purposely speaks less than normal.

    Comfortable, smooth Southern Gothic. Understated, strong, stoic. Thank you, Mr. Kloves.

    Sometimes it's odd/jarring/wistful to see a couple in a movie who have split quite a while ago. Gwyneth Paltrow is in FLESH AND BONE, too. She's good.
