Thunder Road Reviews

October 18, 2018
Remarkably, Cummings manages to piece these oddball vignettes into a vivid drama with its own unpredictable, startlingly lovely shape.

I have seen humanistic American filmmaking's future, and its name is Jim Cummings.

Offers a memorable depiction of a man ill-equipped to deal with or direct his feelings-probably not all that different from the rest of us.

Cummings, who also wrote and directed the film, has delivered a remarkable tragicomic performance in the lead.

Driven by Cummings' transfixingly vulnerable performance, the movie not only justifies returning to the source: Shockingly, it does so without even using the device that seemed key to the short's success.

When Cummings finds the right balance of dramatic license and believable characterization, 'Thunder Road' is exhilarating to watch.

Thunder Road lands on a tragic development, but upends it with a single teary-eyed moment that hints - with no real evidence - that better things may be around the corner.

Cummings is a born filmmaker who plants seedlings of raw drama that sprout in unexpected and moving ways.
