The Barber is a cut above
21 November 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie has so much going for it. I've seen it several times and still can't get enough. There's a cougar, eccentric townfolk, hunters and the barber everyone knows. The Barber has some great humour, surprises and suspense all performed by a talented cast brought to life through a very smart script.

Buffalo and Levi, like Lemmon and Matthau on crack, make me laugh out loud every time. Philip Granger's Levi is deliciously lecherous and C. Ernst Harth's Buffalo is his simple yet sincere sidekick. John Destry's Cecil, the long suffering widower is a man very familiar with the edge of sanity. The troubled Chief Corgan is superbly portrayed by Jeremy Ratchford with Paul Jarrett as his sidekick, Everett. Malcolm McDowell, perfectly cast as Dexter Miles, is at his creepy best, I've always loved his voice so the fact that he narrates this movie is a real treat for me.

The story begins on the last day of daylight in Revelstoke, Alaska, finding the townsfolk preparing themselves for the dark season. Jim's Chat & Chew is the local gathering spot in the day hours with the Liquor Pig being the favorite haunt at night, somewhere in the middle, the residents of this quiet town cross paths with the barber, some getting more than they bargain for.

The lighting, scenery and atmosphere combined with the music fits so very perfectly with the story and the cast to make this a very watchable movie. Highly recommended.
