Trivia

When Mike Dixon is looking through the Hull's pictures, there is a picture from Derek Hull's Marine days, which was clearly a photo of Alexander Skarsgård with former marine Eric Kocher while they were working on HBO's Generation Kill (2008). The photo after is also a picture of the cast of Generation Kill, and many of the actors from the show can be identified. See more »

Disconnect (2012)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent character study looking at a group of people who have their lives damaged due to activities that they do through the internet. One story deals with a married couple (Paula Patton, Alexander Skarsgard) who are mourning the loss of their child when they discover that their identity has been stolen. A lawyer (Jason Bateman) tries to understand what happened to his son that made him do something drastic. A television reporter (Andrea Riseborough) uses an internet sex actor (Max Thieriot) for her own needs. A former cop (Frank Grillo) discovers that his son might have done something morally wrong. DISCONNECT eventually brings all of these stories together. There's no question that none of these stories are masterpieces and I think it's fair to say that many of them play out exactly like you'd expect them to. Normally this here would kill a movie but director Henry Alex Rubin and screenwriter Andrew Stern do a terrific job at giving us characters we care about, want to know more about and this helps carry the entire picture. I think this film offers up a very good concept of how people have lost touch with reality and sometimes enter dangerous situations online simply because they have nothing better to do or they're looking for some sort of connection that they can't find in their own lives. The film really does a good job at explaining all of these characters and really developing all of them so that you really do feel as if you know these people and understand everything they're doing and why. It certainly doesn't hurt that we're given so many excellent performances. Both Bateman and Grillo really stand out as parents who fear that they have let their children down. Thieriot, making waves on 'Bates Motel,' also is very good in his part. The entire cast really does shine and this here says a lot about their talent but also the screenplay, which gives them so much to do. Again, I think many people will see the ending coming but it really doesn't matter because of the emotional connection that you get with the characters. DISCONNECT is certainly a gem of a picture that shows what a great script, direction and acting can do.
