Keane (2005)



Average Rating: 7.1/10

Fresh: 49 | Rotten: 10

The scrutinizing camera angles of Keane might at first feel too close for comfort, but this powerful portrait of a man distraught by the abduction of his child plumbs the depths of mental illness and the corners of fleabag hotels in an intimate and touching examination of the seedier side of life.

Movie Info

American independent filmmaker Lodge Kerrigan returned after a six-year hiatus with this formally challenging tale of a disheveled man desperately searching New York City for his young daughter. Keane takes its name from its central character, a middle-aged man (Damien Lewis) who wanders Port Authority with a seemingly tenuous grasp of his sanity, muttering to himself and causing altercations with passers-by. He claims to have lost his daughter at a bus station, and consistently pleads for

The film achieves a dramatic intensity that is both admirable and frustrating.

Lewis makes Keane's paranoia our paranoia. Kerrigan limits our world to his world. And that's how this grimly shot, roughly felt drama pulls us in.

When it comes to an emotional payoff at the end, unlike most Hollywood films, it has earned it.

The next time you see someone railing in the streets -- fighting a battle you'll never understand -- you may remember Keane and pause to reflect.

Only Kerrigan's previous Clean, Shaven surpasses Keane as a sympathetic study of a man unravelled.

[Lewis] immerses himself so deeply in Keane's psyche and skin that you easily forget this is acting, not real life.

Aside from Lewis's excellent acting, there's little reason to spend two hours with Keane.

A small wonder of a minimalist morality tale.

The role of Keane is a tall order, as he's onscreen for every frame of the film, but Lewis is just brilliant, holding our attention and ultimately our compassion for a deeply troubled man.

Affliction has rarely been so sensitively explored.

A psycho-underworld tour de force like Irreversible or The Machinist, impressive as far as it goes (not far), single-minded but without enough on its mind, a gimmick flick.

The entire second half of the unbearably tense....Lewis, whose performance is the overwhelming center of the piece, deserves a large share of the credit for making the entire thing so grueling.

Lodge Kerrigan is one of the great, though largely unheralded, filmmakers of our time.

It's in that breathtaking humanism, its illustration of the way we connect to one another, and how brittle that social fabric can be, that the film touches on sublimity.

[Damian Lewis] is utterly riveting as a man who is all too aware that he's looking into the abyss and the scenes where he dips into outright mentalism are extremely uncomfortable to watch.

November 2, 2005 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

With its endless close-ups, it's almost suffocating in intensity, but is saved by Kerrigan's sympathy for his character, and Lewis' utterly realistic performance.

Professionals in the mental health field may find this film interesting; the rest of us will probably find our attention wandering a bit, pondering how good Keane might have been.

Audience Reviews for Keane

A disturbed man spends his days wandering around the Port Authority searching for his daughter who was abducted a year ago; is he sane enough to help take care of his welfare-hotel neighbor's daughter, who's about the same age as his lost girl? A well-intentioned and humane character study that suffers in comparison to the writer/director's more intense schizo dad debut, CLEAN, SHAVEN.

A father who had his 7 year old daughter abducted roams the streets obsessively retracing his steps, consumed by guilt and self loathing. Sunshine and lollipops, Keane is not. It's an intense character study of a man whose life has been destroyed by a tragic event, leaving him a mentally ill piece of emotional wreckage, unable to cope with the memories of what has happened. Damian Lewis puts in an amazing performance, especially since the camera never leaves his side for the entire duration of the film and it's an extremely worthy and intelligent piece of film making. Enjoyable it is not, however. The experience is a little like that of Requiem For A Dream; the emotional time bomb was a bit like the anticipation of having a large plaster ripped off a particularly hairy area, or waiting in line at school for a painful injection. It's an extremely intense and creditable experiment that will probably make you a little less judgemental when seeing a "crazy person" on the street, but I sure as hell wouldn't take a date to go and see it...

Kerrigan explores some darker parts of the mind as Lewis searches for his missing daughter. The realistic way in which Kerrigan shoots has the film covered by an uncomfortable sense of dread. Lewis gives the performance of a lifetime, rarely off-screen, and often acting against himself, Lewis captures the desperation and tragedy, as well as the flaws that any human has. Breslin gives another example of why she will become one of the world's greatest actresses and Ryan continues to impress. Every role is played with subtlety, and there's no non-digetic music to intrude on proceedings. A little bit of wonderful, delivered at a thoughtful pace.

Well directed by Lodge Kerrigan with some brilliant acting by Damian Lewis who really steals the show with a very powerful performance & Abigail Breslin who is excellent at such a young age. Unfortunately, all the initial suspense and intrigue that this film starts with soon descends into boredom as the story goes out the window and what could have been good at 20 minutes long, seems like an eternity at 90 minutes. A real shame!
