Thunder Road Reviews
The brilliance of Thunder Road is how Jim Cummings strikes a tone of outrageous humor and legitimately earned sadness within the same scene, a feat he accomplishes multiple times throughout the dark comedy. Some of the earlier scenes see him attempting to work on the force despite being an emotionally unstable mess as a result of his mother's passing and his superiors telling him to not return until a specified date, and it's in these moments especially that we laugh but simultaneously worry for his sanity.
Thunder Road is one of the best films of the year. [4/5]
