Mystic River

Posted by martinteller on October 19, 2003

The performances are a bit over the top, and the conclusion too ambiguous to be satisfying, given the slow build-up of the movie… but it is nice to see a Hollywood movie with big Hollywood stars that takes some risks.  I guess I don’t really know what to think.  I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it.  I wanted to see what would happen, but it often seemed too deliberately slow.  Kevin Bacon was very good, the rest of them needed to rein it in a little bit.  Rating: 6
