Some Kind of Knockout
2 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Eddie Carbone (Raf Vallone) a dockworker on the Brooklyn Navy yard accepts his wife's two cousins into his home so they may work and earn enough to return to Sicily prosperous. However when the younger brother Rodolpho (Jean Sorel) gets cozy with Eddie's beloved niece sparks fly and soon there is tragedy.

Having never seen the original Miller play on which this is based I cannot compare this 1962 film adaptation by Sidney Lumet but from the film alone I can say it is quite an a achievement. The low budget is obvious and many a time one feels as if they are watching an old television movie but at the same time it adds another layer to the raw atmosphere of the piece. This is the Brooklyn of the 1950s where few many families struggle for a meager wage and are bound to the docks and their traditions to keep them alive and this film captures it all. Hwever the cheap look also puts more emphasis on the actors to give their best and boy do they deliver, I could not account for 1 bad performance in this film with the leads routinely strong, particularly Vallone adding an authentic Italian touch, to the extras dotted with many true blue New York blue collar actors like Frank Campanella and Vincent Gardenia.

Being from an Italian family I can say this film captures many of the eccentricities and machinations of an Italian household from the claims of masculinity to talks of family and the fruit at the end of the meal with the family. Lumet captures the cramped atmosphere so reminisced and glorified in many homes but here turned cold and repugnant due to the material of the piece. The film brilliantly draws the contrast between the old world Italian immigrant mindset of making and saving to go home (as expressed in the brother Marco in his strictly workman's cloths) and that of the younger, new immigrants who come to America to look for opportunity and pleasures not found at home (as expressed in Jean Sorrel with his bolo tie and Texas shirt). The film deals with old world adapting to new world in a larger passion play of lust and betrayal with emotions so sustained that shift to become so open and raw one is left gasping.

Just goes to show what can be accomplished with good actors and a fine director, another under regarded jewel in Sidney Lumet's crown.
