I find that Gus Van Sant’s more recent movies tend to be unwieldy; this is no different. It’s a steady march through the accident that left John Callahan a paraplegic and his sobriety journey. The performances are great,* but the narrative meanders in a way that inspired me to watch some of this with my eyes closed.

Cost: $6.00 
Where watched: Hollywood Theater with S. North

Also consider watching: Thanks for Sharing, The Fighter

*Joaquin Phoenix is remarkable for how much his physicality transforms from role to role. Compare this with his Johnny Cash in Walk the Line and Freddie Quell in The Master.

    I am appreciating the wig/hair game going on in the poster. The actors look quite transformed. I agree that JP really gives himself over physically to a role.
