The piece is ultimately admirable for its lack of easy answers, for its continued sense of emotional confusion.
Agnieszka Holland (Europa, Europa) directs this stunning cast in what is essentially one long therapeutic interrogation with evidentiary flashbacks -- a claustrophobic seizure, a water torture of family secrets.
Explores an oft-exploited case with exquisite understanding and care.
Puts Gary Gilmore's tragic life into perspective, helping explain why it went so far amiss.
A bleak, haunting movie.
Only a writer as talented as Mikal Gilmore could tell a story that punches you in the gut about every five seconds and yet leaves you hoping for more.
Quite a morbid picture, but the performances save it
Delves deeply into the haunted life of the Gilmore family and finds a chronicle of death foretold.
Energetically directed from Frank Pugliese's deft script by Agnieszka Holland.
maybe somewhat interesting for some as its about a prisoner on death row who?s family wants to try to get him to change his mind about his death sentence. (not electric chair some other way) Giovanni Rimbisi (sp?) plays the youngest son & the jail bird I think was the eldest of 3-4 brothers. The movie takes place (if I remember right) in the 70s. The mother loves Johnny Cash as well as at least one of the sons. To my surprise Paul Wesley (aka Stephan Salvatore of Vampire Diaries) plays the eldest bro when he was in his teens/20s. There?s a pic at the end of it where he looks like one of the NJ Devils players the way he?s smiling.) anyway I didn?t fall asleep but to me it was kind of boring BUT it was interesting. D
If you're a Ribisi fan you must see this neglected little movie. He plays the brother of
convicted murderer Gary Gilmore (The Executioner's Song) .Based on the book by Gilmore's brother.Ribisi is amazing in the range and depth of his performance.
