See Donald Sutherland at his quirky, most sinister best
22 November 2001 | by (walnut grove, CA/USA) – See all my reviews

The story line (except for the snappy twist at the end) is fairly standard man-caught-in a downward professional and personal spiral. You just know that the protagonist is going compound one poor decision with another and yet another--outof loyalty to his unethical, flaky partner. His blind ambition leads him into a sinister plot with "Doc: Donald Sutherland weilding the whip (and holding the gun at one point.) His marriage is falling apart, but he persists in his bad decisions, like a gambler at the crap tables trying to get back afloat. Nothing special here. But Donald Southerland in a caricature of Mephistopheles saves this formulaic film. His portrayal of Doc is quirky, cute, vicious, and complex. You almost start liking the guy, his parsimonious habits, his cheap clothes. He is like a tag-along little boy just trying to find a buddy--until the prospective Buddy acts like he wants his soul back without paying the devil his due. Southland carries this film on his performance as a multidimensional, likeable creep, who has more quirks than a Rubics cube. See it--the Quicksand (an apt title)--if you are a Southerland fan (and remember his comic character in Mash.)
