The Reivers

The Reivers

In turn-of-the-century Mississippi, an 11-year-old boy comes of age as two mischievous adult friends talk him into sneaking the family car out for a trip to Memphis and a series of adventures.

An old man looks back 60 years to a road trip from rural Mississippi to Memphis, a horse race, and his own coming of age. Lucius's grandfather gets the first automobile in the area, a bright yellow Winton Flyer. While he's away, the plantation handyman, Boon Hogganbeck, conspires to borrow the car, taking Lucius with him. Stowed away is Ned, a mulatto and Lucius's putative cousin. The three head for Memphis, where Boon's sweetheart works in a whorehouse, where Ned trades the car for a racehorse, and where Lucius discovers the world of adults - from racism and vice to possibilities for honor and courage. Is there redemption for reivers, rascals, and rapscallions? . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Kyle S (br) wrote: Smartest movie that's come out in a while. Reminds me of Robocop's deeper and more than subtle meaning behind a cool and dark plot.

Robert B (mx) wrote: It's better to take this film as something made by young filmmakers than as a critically acclaimed sensation. It's more about the vibe, the look, the spirit of a work by young artists. It's not about having everything correct and beautiful.

Will W (us) wrote: The type of film that will make u hold your head in shame and ask why?

Nicholas W (us) wrote: Its rare to find a crime movie so full of humor and memorable characters outside of the Tarantino Movieverse, but this one delivers. The movie gets better with every subsequent viewing, and creates a hilarious reservoir of one-liners that never grow stale. This is the pinnacle of dark comedy.

Rolf H (us) wrote: Utter failure to Kung Fu properly.There are certain codes of honor people must obey to properly live as a movie Kung Fu master. This flagrantly ignores all these principals in many ways but most significantly in one particular moment: Jet Li gets taken captive by a whole group of gunmen and then tells the leader he's going to kill him. The leader laughs at the apparently futile threat only to have Jet Li correct him that it's not a threat, it's a promise. A perfectly serviceable setup for a righteous murder, preferably within 30 seconds of any proper martial arts master saying it, but it doesn't happen not ever. He even gets a golden opportunity (not that a real expert needs anything more than the gunmen being distracted for 1/8th of a second) and doesn't even take it. What the hell?!? Did the screenwriters ever even watch any East Asian films at all? What is the point of the hero spending years of his life being tormented by a sadistic hermit if he can't even live by the code of always proving what a bad-ass he really is. I'm not even too scared of him to write that his teacher must be ashamed. I know these crossover movies have to let certain normally irredeemable slights slide, like being a foreigner, but some parts of the code must not be ignored.In contrast just look at the Street Fighter (a movie this film liberally rips off in the worst ways) two dudes square off without needing anything more than exchanging a purposeful look. I'm sure Jet Li had to buy a house in Singapore or something (their real estate does not come cheap), but I feel bad for him debasing himself like this.

Jeff B (fr) wrote: I prefer the Ring of Fire. This stupid med. student drama starring old people (was there a short of teenagers in the late 50s/early 60s?) moved really slowly.

Michael W (ag) wrote: Frantic comedy with post Pearl Harbour US panicking in wake of a feared Japanese mainland US attack. Film has no real central character and everything seems to be disorganized chaos thrown together for two hours. Has to be regarded as a significant underachievement given the talent involved. The ventriloquist dummy provides as many laughs as any of the actors.
