A Real Cold Life
16 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As Tony Soprano James Gandolfini has left an Enduring Icon in Popular Culture. An Actor who Carried His Bulk Uneasily, yet with Intimidation, Always seemed to be Struggling against Gravity. Inside was a Smoldering Fire that He seemed to Restrain Except for an Occasional Outburst that Resembled a Raging Bull.

In this Little Seen, Little Movie He gives an Actor's Showcase along with a Strong Cast, as a Sensitive Soul that is Bitter about the Life He was Given. When a Stranger Shows Up and says that He was Married to His Vacationing Sister, Gandolfini is Suspect and is Outraged when he is told some Very Bad News.

This is a Chilling and Atmospheric Movie that is Interspersed with Interpersonal Relationships that are Fragile and Long Suffering. It is a Slice of Jersey Life with a Background of a Small Amusement Park that Recalls a Remanence of a Neglected Bastard Child of Coney Island Long Removed from its Glory Days.

Certainly Worth a View for those that are Attracted to Real Life Scenarios Without a lot of Packaging and is a Somewhat Subtle Display of Repressed Emotions and a Depressing Existence. It is the Environment of an Abusive Family Life and a Cold Setting of a Sunless Beach and a Wintery Carnival that like the Humans that Inhabit are Distinctively Dislocated from a Friendly or Attractive Place that is Conducive for Thriving and Prospering.
