A very good movie with an art house type quality. Casting is perfect & I recommend but not for everyone. I say B., 3 April 2013
Author: Tony Heck from United States
"You have me to get you started out" Charlie Rankin (Dorff) has just got out of prison and stops in to see a man called "The Buddha" (Dafoe) who was writing him in prison. He is told about someone he is to murder for him. When the murder goes wrong Charlie begins to worry about what will happen. Him and a woman named Florence (Monaghan) begin to hang around together and Charlie thinks it will help, but he isn't sure of anything anymore. I have to start by saying that I did enjoy this and I recommend this movie but it is not for everyone. While not a total "art-house" type movie it is in that vein. The movie is more of a character driven type movie then I was expecting, but I really think that helped the movie. Dorff is good in this and Defoe has a strong and powerful presence even though he is only in it a few minutes. This is not really a fast paced movie but it will keep you watching right up until the end. I liked it. Overall, not a movie for everyone but well worth checking out. I say B.

Tomorrow Your Gone a.k.a. Boot Tracks a B-flick thriller only for a fan..., 18 February 2013
Author: Atdheu90 from Ferizaj (Kosovo)
Tomorrow You're Gone a.k.a. Boot Tracks is a Triller that centers on
Charlie Rankin (Stephen Dorff), who prior of getting released from
prison gets a message from his "mentor" - "The Buddha" (Willem Dafoe)
to kill somebody... But the murder goes wrong and Charlie gets
seriously effected by it... meanwhile Charlie begins to have some
serious hallucinations because of his past and because of what he's
doing... On a way he meets these mysterious girl Florence Jane
(Michelle Monaghan) who reminds him of someone he used to know and
together they embark on a mysterious journey...
- Tomorrow You're Gone is a typical B-class movie, directed by the director of "Down in The Valley", David Jacobson and starring Stephen Dorff, who does his usual thing, Michelle Monaghan who looks well casted and Willem Dafoe in a small but efficient part as he gives the movie more class...
- I wouldn't recommend these movie to everybody but as long as you're a fan of any member of the cast or if you like these kind of movies...then go for it, if not just "forget about it" cuz it's not worth it
PS: it's only 88 minutes long..
What Seems Like So Much Potential Just Falls Flat, 15 May 2013
Author: gavin6942 from United States
Charlie Rankin (Stephen Dorff), recently released from prison, seeks
vengeance for his jail-house mentor William "The Buddha" Pettigrew
(Willem Dafoe). Along the way, he meets the ethereal, yet streetwise,
Florence Jane. They embark on a unlikely road trip, careening towards
an unlikely redemption and uncertain resolution.
Although this film had many good moments (such as the home invasion) and it is possibly Dorff's final acting to date (he has really blossomed in this role) it overall just seems too uneven and did not resonate well with me.
The primary problem I had was with Florence. She was not someone I felt the audience could understand or appreciate. Why did Rankin like her? Their whole relationship is built on nothing. And yes, I understand this is a whimsical road trip without commitment... but she was just the wrong character for such a thing.
And if there was a deeper message, I missed it. All that occurred to me is that Charlie Rankin has the same name as the Nazi in Orson Welles' "The Stranger". I sincerely doubt this was intentional, because trying to draw parallels is far too difficult -- Welles' Rankin is a false identity hiding from his criminal past. Rankin is this film uses the alias Samson and he, too, has a criminal past he cannot overcome. But that is it (and only works in the most vague way).
The novel probably clears things up, but after seeing the film I have little motivation to seek it out.

Worst film of 2013, 14 May 2013
Author: estebangonzalez10 from Ecuador
¨You want to tell me what went wrong last night? ¨
I think I just found the number 1 contender for worst film of the year, at only 90 minutes long this film is so tedious and pointless that I felt it was never going to end. It tries too hard to be an art house film, but we've seen these character driven neo noir films done much better in the past. I don't even think this film makes sense or tries to deliver any sort of message. You don't even know when the main character is imagining things or living reality; everything is so ambiguous and vague. Tomorrow You're Gone never goes anywhere and it's a shame because Stephen Dorff and Michelle Monaghan are pretty good actors. This is just a waste of their talents and a waste of our time. Director David Jacobson (Down in the Valley) has made one pretentious movie and with the help of screenwriter Matthew F Jones (Deepwater and A Single Shot) he has made one of the worst films I've seen in a long time. I usually take something positive about a film no matter how much I dislike it, but I cannot say anything good about this movie. There is not one single thing that I like about this pretentious thriller. Willem Defoe could be the best thing about this film, but he is in this movie as much as he is in the trailer. This is a complete waste of time so stay away from this film.
Charlie Rankin (Stephen Dorff who gave his best performance in 2010 in Somewhere) is getting out of prison after four years, but before he leaves he receives a letter from his mentor in prison, the Buddha (Willem Dafoe), who asks him to kill someone for him. As soon as Charlie gets out of prison he goes looking for this man and receives a special payment from the Buddha. However, something goes wrong with the hit and Charlie can't quite settle his debt with him. Along the way Charlie encounters a mysterious woman named Florence (Michelle Monaghan) who for I don't know what reason sees the good in Charlie and tries to rescue him from his pain. Together they embark on a road trip and half of the time you don't even know what the two are talking about. It's hard to explain the plot of the movie when nothing really makes much sense and most of the things going on seems like they are all imagined by Charlie. There is a thin line between reality and fantasy here, and Charlie has some serious and dark unresolved issues going on. I really hated this movie and I can't say it enough times, stay as far away from this film as possible.
