DVD Review: 'The Angriest Man in Brooklyn'

8 September 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆In the wake of Academy Award-winning American actor Robin Williams' tragic and untimely death last month, it was arguably the work outside of his zany and larger-than-life persona that fans responded to most whilst playing tribute to the man. Like those films, Phil Alden Robinson's adaptation of little-known Israeli film The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum (1997), now entitled The Angriest Man in Brooklyn (2014) sees the late comedian once again playing against type, this time as the embittered character of the title. However, for all of Williams' best efforts, it's a film which is sadly destined to sit with those below-par efforts which have become increasing conspicuous towards the latter part of his career.

"Angriest Man In Brooklyn" Has Plenty To Be Angry About

6 September 2014 8:31 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

This might hurt some in the five boroughs to hear, but it’s possible that New York might be a little over-represented in modern film. It has it’s place, to be sure, but a quick survey of independent films produced in the last decade suggests an industry hell-bent on propagating an image of the Big Apple as the geographic embodiment of your friend who talks tough but has a ‘heart of gold’ (whatever that means). All too often, that image rings false, as it does here in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, an ignominious swan song for Robin Williams. It does its best to have its political incorrectness and eat it too, but even people who’ve never visited will recognize its New York as a place that has never, ever existed.

Win ‘The Angriest Man In Brooklyn’ On DVD!

3 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The late, great Robin Williams makes one of his final on-screen appearances amongst a star-studded cast in the hard-hitting comedy-drama The Angriest Man In Brooklyn, released on DVD and digital platforms on September 8th, 2014 courtesy of Signature Entertainment and we’ve got three to giveaway on DVD!

Directed by Phil Alden Robinson (The Sum of All Fears, Band of Brothers), The Angriest Man In Brooklyn sees Williams playing Henry Altmann, a curmudgeonly Brooklynite who, following a taxi crash, a brain scan and a stressed out doctor, mistakenly thinks he has just 90 minutes to live. What follows is a poignant, astonishingly portentous journey of redemption as Altmann races to reconcile with his wife, his brother and his friends after a lifetime of maltreatment and before it is too late.

Robin Williams stars in a clip from The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.

The black comedy centres on a curmudgeonly man who is mistakenly told by his physician that he has only 90 minutes left to live, and spends a frantic afternoon trying to right his life's wrongs.

Mila Kunis co-stars as the doctor, who realises her error and sets out to find Williams's Henry Altmann in order to tell him the truth.

Peter Dinklage, Melissa Leo and James Earl Jones are among the supporting cast. The film is directed by Phil Alden Robinson, who is best known as a screenwriter from films including Field of Dreams.

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn marks one of Williams's final screen roles, following the actor's death last month.

The Angriest Man In Brooklyn DVD Review

2 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Phil Alden Robinson

Starring: Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Peter Dinklage, Melissa Leo

Running Time: 83 minutes

Certificate: 15

There’s no denying The Angriest Man In Brooklyn has come at a poignant time after the recent death of Robin Williams. The themes of sadness, anger, family and loss are dispersed through Phil Alden Robinson’s film and trying to disassociate them from reality has an undoubted effect on watching and considering the movie.

Based on the film The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum by Assi Dayan, this adaptation sees Henry Altmann (Williams) as an excessively angry Brooklynite who goes to see his Doctor for the results of a brain scan. When over-worked Doctor Sharon Gill (Mila Kunis) is assigned to give him the update, he’s already been waiting for a while and his build-up of tension turns into rage upon discovering he has a brain aneurism.

Mila Kunis Called Robin Williams a Person Who Left a Lasting Impact on Her Life: "Remember This Time," He Once Told Her

22 August 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's amazing what you can find when you go through the archives. Mila Kunis was among the lucky ones who got to work with Robin Williams over the course of his storied, Oscar-winning career and, in previously unpublished remarks from an interview she gave during that time, she was already calling him a person who had made a lasting impression on her life with just a few words. Talking to Esquire in 2012, when she was shooting The Angriest Man in Brooklyn with Williams, Kunis recounted a story about meeting him when he was filming a scene on the same lot as That '70s Show one day—and she never forgot what he told her.

22 August 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Oscar-winning actress pays tribute to the late Robin Williams, with whom she co-starred in one of the comedian and actor’s final films.

Melissa Leo, who won an Oscar for her role in The Fighter, has spoken about Robin Williams calling the late comedian and actor “a very, very special human being and a very, very fine and hardworking actor.”

Leo starred in one of Williams’ final films, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.

Speaking to ScreenDaily at the Sarajevo Film Festival, where she is on the competition jury, Leo said: “He’s a magical man… It’s a great loss for all of us.”

The actress also recalled their connection over TV series Homicide: Life on the Street, in which Leo starred in nearly 80 episodes and Williams once guest starred in 1994.

Mila Kunis Isn't Afraid to Show Off Her Baby Bump

Mila Kunis stepped out in Los Angeles yesterday in a formfitting black tank that showed off her adorable baby bump. The actress has become a regular at prenatal yoga classes, even attending one on her 31st birthday last week. She recently spoke out about the late Robin Williams, whom she recently worked with on The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, saying that he reminded her to step back and enjoy the special moments she has experienced. It appears that the actress may be taking his advice - it seems like she's been having fun during her pregnancy while spending plenty of time with her fiancé, Ashton Kutcher. He recently took the Ice Bucket Challenge with his and Mila's That '70s Show costar Wilmer Valderrama. »

It is a sad fact that Robin Williams' last few years worth of work has been relegated to On Demand or straight to cable. Films like The Angriest Man In Brooklyn and World's Greatest Dad did not get the exposure the acclaimed Oscar winner had received in years past. Most of his big screen work was in supporting roles like Night At The Museum. With four films completed before his death, Williams will be seen again but how widely is unknown. The first of the four films to see release will be »

The Flickering Myth writing staff pay their respects to Robin Williams

Following the tragic news yesterday, the Flickering Myth writing staff remeber one of the greatest comedic performers of our generation…

Matt Spencer-Skeen: True comic genius, who transcended generations and ages. Will be missed sorely.

Vilordsutch: This man has been with me since I discovered his manic and quick-witted comedy, as a very small child, with Mork and Mindy and I’ve stayed with him (through his career) ever since. Such a sad thing knowing his mental state had given him this only option. My thoughts are with his family.

Oliver Davis: For some reason I’m pining most for Jack, Patch Adams and Bicentennial Man today. Although not his critically lauded works, worn-out VHS copy scenes keep playing in my mind’s eye. I watched all three when I was in my very early teens and each made me weep heartily. »
