Certainly too young to have any interest in watching a film like Johnny Handsome, about a deformed ex-con given a second chance at life by a kind hearted doctor (Forest Whitaker) who performs a series of radical surgeries that give Johnny a Handsome new face. Sounds like the plot of a noirish potboiler. And guess what, it IS a noirish potboiler. There's really nothing new here--basically a standard revenge story populated with over-the-top villains, a cop (Morgan Freeman) hell-bent on aiding Johnny in his own downfall, and a (newly) good-looking loner with a heart of gold (Rourke). If you are into this kind of thing as I am, you are already hooked. Couple all of this with a sexy New Orleans backdrop with seedy strip clubs and seedier characters, you have the formula for one badass crime flick. Johnny is thrust into this world of evil characters when an old friend, one of the very few friends he has due in large part to his grotesque deformity, asks his help with a heist. A perfectly reasonable and even noble request in the world of the noir film. Johnny reluctantly accepts, bringing him into contact with two other criminals, partners in this enterprise, an ultra violent and evil tandem of an over-sexed Ellen Barkin (grrr) and Lance Henriksen playing the greasiest man alive. And guess what, their involvement results in the death of Johnny's friend and the capture of Johnny himself. He takes the rap for the crime while Barkin and Henriksen usurp control of a seedy strip club which becomes the base of their operation. Oh, you know these two are going down.The film's biggest weakness is also its greatest asset. My only experiences with Mickey Rourke have been recent. I was touched by his broken down piece of meat Randy "The Ram" in The Wrestler, and was thrilled by him as Whiplash. I do have vague recollections of Harley Davison and the Marlboro Man, and liking it very much. I recall hearing somewhere that Rourke fell into such deep depression after making that film that he left the business, perhaps forever. And I remember thinking, but that was a fun movie, why would he hate himself for making it? You had fun and made money, what's not to like? This was when I was quite young and was not yet familiar with the concept of artistic integrity. I still don't quite understand it, but watching Rourke in this film I think I understand his issue. Rourke plays Johnny to the bone. He is sympathetic without being melodramatic--Rourke gives the character rough edges so that we are never quite allowed to pity him. On a craft level, he also slowly sheds a speech impediment that recedes into a light Cajun drawl over the course of his surgical recovery. It's a brilliant performance that probably could have earned him an Oscar nod had it been in any other film. And there's the problem. While Rourke brings an intensity and expertise to this film, Henriksen and Barkin play as if they are having the time of their lives. Henriksen is so over-the top and Barkin is so skanky that when they are on together their greasiness seems to ooze off the screen. They're in a noir film, and damn it they are going to play it right. So then, when they occupy the frame with Rourke's Johnny they seem to be existing in alternate universes brought inextricably together by circumstance. It's absurd, but kind of fun. I don't remember if Harley Davidson is a complex sympathetic character or not, but I think I finally see Rourke's frustration, caught somewhere between matinee idol and great American actor.Still, the film on a whole is sexy and fun. Three and a half stars if you're looking for a little badass modern film noir.

(de) wrote: interesting ideas about how people relate to each other. I particularly liked the multi-screen online video chat that was quite a current and visually nice way to present a complex array of perspectives. Scott Speedman seems to have sublimated from roles at junior at college (ie Felicity) to 30-something bearded man - but his performance is great. I liked the connections and the concepts. The cello score is great. Interesting ideas on perspective.
