The Immigrant Reviews

  • Oct 15, 2019

    Great actors and beautiful visuals make The Immigrant a pleasant period drama even though it doesn't engage or captivate the audience. The movie is slow and the story never reaches a satisfying conclusion which is very frustrating considering it wasn't good to begin with.

    Amazing period piece of an struggling immigrant trying to survive is the sinful world of America. Rich all the way through with Grade A performances

    Strong, emotive drama about abusive, demeaning existence of financially insecure women on the fringes of the American theatrical world nearly 90 years ago. Depressive and largely sepia toned. Distributed by Mirimax/Weinstein.

    migrates involuntarily and suffers for art.. The Immigrant Even though the script isn't as convoluted as the writers think, they wisely installed plenty of extra room for other sub-plots to factor in, which was smart of them to play safe, and that can be the accurate description of the feature in a word; safe. It is rich on technical aspects like cinematography, costume design, make-up design, art design and editing. The script focuses more on its three dimensional pragmatic characters that are unpredictable, dark and brutally honest that helps the feature to draw out the attention of the viewers. James Gray; the writer-director, has done a tremendous work on executing this character driven feature and pushes its boundary on the script by visiting unexpected places that helps on keeping the audience on the edge of the seat. It is no short on performance for obvious reasons, like Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner as a supporting actor. The chemistry among the actors doesn't communicate to the viewers despite of offering a wider range for them to factor in, which is the only downer in here as the emotions comes out a bit shallow. The Immigrant migrates involuntarily and suffers for art where its gripping screenplay is what keeps the feature alive despite of having stellar performance.

    The Immigrant's high point is not its unsurprising story, but its layered characters bettered by strong performances.

    Complete debacle of a movie. Poor acting, a bad plot and zero character development equals a complete waste of time.
