I don't even like to read reviews much anymore, let alone write one. The riveting "Mystic River" has inspired me but I think that what I want to write is not a movie review but an essay of praise.I learned long ago, after seeing "Byrd," that Clint Eastwood's towering talent lies in directing, not acting. I heard Sean Penn say that Eastwood is the only Hollywood Icon he ever worked with that turned out to be the real thing.I am in awe of his directorial prowess. I haven't read any of the reviews but was surrounded by the Four Star buzz, and when I go into a movie expecting it to be great, there is a 90% chance of my having nowhere to go but down. This film fell in that rare 10% slot that delivered rather than disapponted. Like Monster's Ball, it is too visceral for me to be eager for a second viewing. I probably will see it again at some point though, because a) I almost needed a translator for the pungent accents, b) I heard dialogue so mesmerizingly complex that I was either hopping on my toes or spinning out into a dream of my own weaving. Like momentous classical tragedy, it challenges the viewer at every turn.Set in Boston, the story begins with three boys of about ten, playing stick hockey on an urban street. One of them is taken into a car by that lowest of human existence, a pedophile. The movie fast-forwards thirty years with the onset of a new tragedy and from there the drama emerges with relentless intensity. The police/crime story is compelling and taut. The realism is gritty, the story complicated, and the gravity is that of Shakespearian proportions but without his interweaving of comic relief. This is, after all, the twenty-first century.I was gripped by the neck, ripped up one side and down the other, had my heart pulled out, pummeled, and jabbed back inside me with a juicy jolt. I was happy. I do love a hard-hitting work of art!As in most of my favorites, truths of living are exposed. This entails the juxtaposition of good/evil, joy/suffering, sublime/vile, understanding/misunderstanding, humanity/depravity. In this film they are so richly simultaneous that there is no question of our shared human experience. Like the marvelous book Siddhartha, we are an ever-running, ever-changing, ever-volatile river of weakness and righteousness. Not only is nothing really black or white, the gray area is so mercurial and pulsating that it may carry significant flashes of insight and miscalculation, love and hate, surrender and prideful egoism...all within a moment's glance. The river flows on unmitigated. People like to say, "the book is always better." They also say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, the latter applies in the greatest sense. The performances are true, strong, clear and have a conviction that runs concurrent with the integrity of the entire film. Facial expressions carry the weight of entire chapters. Movie fans may exit this movie with the belief that loyalty is the greatest of all virtues. They may then wonder what boundaries loyalty has in the eyes of God or man. They may also wonder--as I do--if the many questions of life are simply too ambiguous to be labeled, understood or answered by mere mortals. Perhaps that "explains" an ending with some things clear while others remain enigmatic. If you go to the movies for special effects, escapism, or warm fuzzies, this is not the ticket for you. If you regard film as experiencing an art form it is a must-see, as Eastwood is an artist of the highest order.

Marina N (ru) wrote: A light romantic tale showing the life of a woman depending on her catching or not catching the underground. The film nicely jumps from one scenario to the other. At the end, it's not a moral statement about lost opportunities or the importance of single seemingly unimportant events. It's just a light play with life paths for the viewer's joy.

Matthew H (jp) wrote: A slick, fun and gritty genre piece that proves that having a small budget shouldn't stop on-screen quality. Justin Dix is an Aussie filmmaker to watch!
