Crazy, 12 January 2012
Author: valis1949 from United States

LULLABY does have a certain 'down-beat charm', but Melisa Leo's fine character acting is completely lost in this preposterous script. Not a single plot-point is even remotely believable. The entire plot turns on a single event. A woman gets a call from halfway around the world that her son will be harmed if she doesn't come up with some money. We don't know exactly what the deal is, but we know that it is a time for desperate measures. But, who would (could?) fly from a trashy trailer-park in the USA to Johannesburg, South Africa to pay a couple of thousand dollars in ransom? She spent more than that to get there! And, what follows is a random collection of shootings, armed robberies, public beatings of pregnant women, and excessive cigarette smoking that just get wilder, and wilder. This one is very hard to wrap your mind around.
