Devilish fun with a great Norton performance!
6 April 2004 | by wgg-1See all my reviews

In a case of no one trusting anyone, a best selling author recovers from an episode of amnesia to learn that her husband, a swaggering Texan, has filed a divorce claim against her. She can't even remember the marriage. But, the writer's own brother verifies the wedding. Along the way, some real estate deals get thrown into the legal mix,and "Mind Games" weaves a web of domestic intrigues that pitch brother against sister and husband versus wife. The cast, featuring a darkly comedic and perfectly rendered performance by Richard Norton as the conniving Texan, ushers the audience into the realm of devilish fun. The writing never abandons its goal of clever twists, and Adrian Carr's sly direction creates an amusing, conspiratorial atmosphere for a cast that delivers. For the sheer diversion of well crafted comedy and perfectly nuanced acting, "Mind Games" is a complete pleasure.

Emerging film writer David Lasdon infuses this comedy of scoundrels with the kind of fresh angles and clever dialogue that make it a wonderful departure from Hollywood's current fare of predictable sequels and TV show makeovers. If any recent character in movies deserves a sequel, it's Norton's brash Texan. The great actor, a martial artist who has also championed acting, was previously directed by Carr in the swift action film "Sword of the Bushido." Though Norton has legend status in martial arts films, he has eclipsed the action genre with his formidable talents, and with Carter Tallerin, his persona in "Games," he perfects the portrait of a comedic rogue. Every moment of the movie and Norton's tour de force performance provide the escapist fun that current movie makers too seldom deliver.
