The Last of the Knucklemen
In the tradition of Sunday Too Far Away, this independent film is based on the classic Australian play by John Power. Pic tells the story of a group of miners living in a camp in outback Australia. They swear, brawl, gamble, and drink heavily. Central to the story is the conflict between Tarzan, the authoritarian group leader and cocky loud-mouth wisecracking Pansy. This results in a bare-knuckle punch-up for the movie's denouement.

(jp) wrote: Honestly one of the worst films I have ever seen. The plot had potential but that was the only thing in this movie that did. The filming itself was terrible and reminded me of a late night "adult" film on Cinemax. Overall it makes one long for the wonderful "badness" of the Hammer films. Do yourself a favor and do NOT watch this one.

I'd be curious to know how 9/11 changed their lives - if it made them re-evaluate priorities and connect with humans more.

(kr) wrote: ehh this movie was ok. Kinda cheesy and really the story is pretty silly. I laughed when I wasn't supposed to and besides Byrne, the acting is atrocious. I didn't know a stigmata meant possession either . A very average film with some, not a lot but some creepy scary parts.

Summertime has always been that youthful energetic part of the year every kid looks forward to, but The Way Way Back paints a darker picture than your usual colorful coastal palate. A 14 year old Duncan is stuck between a rock and a hard place: his mom is dating a sinister and selfish man (played by the great Steve Carell) who takes his new family to his beach house where Duncan meets a new group of characters... and his own dad doesn't wnt him. What makes this film work so well is the cast. Steve Carell in one of his more unique roles as the bad guy does an amazing job, and Sam Rockwell gives the same effort as the friendly everyday jackass. I really liked learning it was directed by two members of the cast: it adds a touch of sentiment and originality to an already indie feel. I only wish the relationship between Duncan and his new neighbor had been explored a little bit more. Otherwise, this is a highly watchable and memorable film thanks to the location, soundtrack, and mainly the awesome cast. There may be better coming-of-age stories, but The Way Way Back is undoubtedly one of the better ones.
