Blackthorn Review


Excellent
Plaintive and perhaps too slow-moving for mainstream audiences, this finely made Western cycles through a rather long, complex narrative. But it's thoroughly involving, with terrific characters and an engaging emotional punch.

It turns out that Butch Cassidy didn't die in a hail of gunfire in 1908 Bolivia after all. Now calling himself James Blackthorn (Shepard), he's still living there 20 years later with his girlfriend Yana (Solier). But after he decides to return home, he's waylaid by Eduardo (Noriega), a city-slicker who has embezzled thousands from a brutal businessman. Their ensuing adventures spark memories of Blackthorn's days as a young outlaw (Coster-Waldau in flashbacks) with the Sundance Kid (Delaney) and Etta Place (McElligott), chased to South America by the dogged lawman McKinley (Rea).

Moon Review


Excellent
With a remarkable eye for detail, this low-key sci-fi thriller really gets under the skin as it probes the nature of humanity while keeping us on the edge of our seats. In the near future, Sam (Rockwell) is nearing the end of his three-year stint at a mining station on the dark side of the moon and looking forward to going home to his wife and daughter (McElligott and Scodelario). His only company is the computer Gerty (voiced by Spacey). But after an accident on the lunar surface, he has the surreal experience of meeting himself in the station. Together, the two Sams try to figure out what's going on and what'll happen when the rescue team arrives to find two of them.

The film has heavy shadings of three space classics: 2001, Solaris and Silent Running, both in the way it's designed and in its quiet examination of human nature. When reality starts slipping from his grasp, Sam faces an existential crisis and must figure out who he is regardless of what anyone has told him.

And this is what gives the film its kick, even when the plot itself becomes a bit subtle or vague.
