Audience Reviews for Masked and Anonymous

  • Nov 16, 2010
    Another movie that not many people seem to have heard of or seen. A low budget one week wonder shot by the BBC with a charitable cast that reportedly worked for free, I can guarantee that you have never seen a movie quite like this one. Bordering on a metaphorical bio-pic of my hero Bob Dyaln (Jack Fate) and hovering above the apocalyptic backdrop of a war torn (supposedly third world) country, Masked and Anonymous analyses the true nature of human behaviour. Starring Mickey Rourke, Jeff Bridges, Bob Dylan, Ed Harris, Luke Wilson, Val Kilmer and John Goodman just to name a few, this film is disturbing real and aside from Bob singing through out, sometimes in English and sometimes in Spanish, this movie is acceptionally memorable and deserving of praise that it rarely receives.

    it was an ok movie with a wide mixture of actors and i think that could have been one of its problems it had to many great actors in it

    Strange, allegorical film about the state of politics in America... I think. Almost defies review.
