The Sunset Limited
Based on the play of the same name by Pulitzer Prize Winner Cormac McCarthy, this searing two-character drama mixes humor and pathos while examining the relationship between strangers who are brought together by desperate circumstances. Set in a New York tenement apartment, the story focuses on two very different men - a deeply religious black ex-con who thwarts the suicide attempt of an asocial white college professor who tried to throw himself in front of an oncoming subway train, 'The Sunset Limited.' As the one attempts to connect on a rational, spiritual and emotional level, the other remains steadfast in his hard-earned despair. Locked in a philosophical debate, both passionately defend their personal credos and try to convert the other.
The Sunset Limited follows a God-fearing ex-con who saves a despondent college professor from throwing himself in front of a speeding subway train. He won't let the depressed man leave, without following him, and feel he's in this situation for a reason, decided by God. So he struggles to comprehend the suicidal man's unwavering despair during a series of intense philosophical debates. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(us) wrote: When not even great screen presences Samuel L. Jackson or Tom Wilkinson can elevate a film, you know you've got a bad one. It doesn't help that neither of them seem to care at all about the film they find themselves in, and neither of them could be bothered to try. The fact that Jackson, in all his lethargy, is still the best thing about this film tells you the lows this film sinks to. Jackson played Foley, who's out of prison on parole after twenty-five years. He's trying to go straight, but the son of his ex-partner forces him back into the job for one last grift. The first problem is the Samaritan is that it's premise is one we've heard several times before. The second is that it has a terrible screenplay that cannot transcend it's numerous cliches. The dialogue is uninspired and uninteresting, meanwhile the characters are undeveloped and terribly acted. The third problem is that it's stylistically and tonally uneven; at times it seems like the director can't decide which film he's actually directing. The worst part about the Samaritan is that it manages to be both tedious and unpleasant at the same time. The film takes itself dead-seriously, and somber attitude and attempts to shock the audience becomes very irritating. The Samaritan is a film that thinks it's cool, thinks it's clever, thinks it's edgy and provocative, but in the end it's just very, very stupid, very, very boring, and very, very unpleasant.

Although the rich LGBT-context and the less than high quality cinematography (I felt at times like I was watching a shoddy Youtube-quality video), I very much enjoyed this re-imagining.

(fr) wrote: This movie isn't just bad, this movie isn't just terrible, this movie is a goddamn abomination. It's terrible as entertainment, terrible as fantasy, terrible as anything, really. The bad thing is, it actually starts with a half decent premise, a girl who literally has to do what she's told. This would be a ha;f decent way to explore the idea of free will, and even nature vs. nurture, but instead, all this devolves into a stupid mess of a film that emphasizes the worst in teenage attitudes. First of all, they say that Ella is strong willed and independent, and that will is eventually what overcomes her curse of obedience. But, lets actually look at this logically. She doesn't love her best friend, who she's known since she was a little little kid enough to not insult her and tell her she hates her because of her race when ordered, No, when commanded to say such horrible things to her friend, she has to obey, but when ordered to kill a guy she's known two or three days that she's developed a crush on? Oh, she can overcome her curse immediately! Just remember young ladies, a man you barely know is always more important than a friend you've known your whole damn life! What a putrid message for kids.
