The Music of Chance Reviews
But then, how often do you get to see Mandy Pantinkin flex dramatic muscles? When was the last time you could enjoy the grace of Joel Grey? Have you seen M. Emmet Walsh in a meaty role of more than half a movie recently? And won't you want to see the best performance of James Spader - bar none? These are not insignificant pleasures and all to be had in this film. However, it does not surprise me that Philip Haas did not go on to a particularly distinguished career as a director.
Haven't read the Auster book it is based on but i must do.
should have been better
This is truly a movie that I had NO IDEA where it was going to lead me in the next few minutes. Spader is simply amazing and intriguing - and you just start wondering if these normal people are stuck in some sort of metaphysical hell.
Complete character piece and worth your 90 minutes.
