Greenfield: Are you going to be alright?
[re: the photo]
Greenfield: Are you sure about her?
Claire Scully: I'm sure about one thing, Greenfield, the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigates. They're not here to protect anyone, they think we're mailing out the letters and you can be sure they'll prove at least one of us did it. Be careful, before one of your fellow potential millionaires pins it on you.

A perfect combination
28 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

There seems to be an invisible war going on between the worlds of "festival" movies and "Hollywood" movies. Festival snobs will accuse the movies produced by the Hollywood machine of being drool-inducing and mindless, while popcorn-crunchers will attack independent productions as pretentious and artsy-for-its-own-sake.

In reality, both categories have their strengths and weaknesses. Hollywood movies take advantage of the massive budgets and A-list talent made available to them, and the (admittedly rare) truly talented creative men and women know how to make immensely satisfying spectacles. Festival movies, made with small budgets and seemingly often willed into existence by the sheer determination of the filmmakers, are usually full of heart and are allowed to experiment a bit more than a Hollywood production due to not being tied down to a money-minded producer's will.

It is only rarely that a movie will satisfy on both sides. A Dangerous Place draws from the thriller tradition of big Hollywood but never loses its ability to involve the audience's emotions and challenge norms. It is a movie about the strength of an independent woman forced to act with the safety of the country on the line that keeps the audience both riveted and intellectually and emotionally involved. Having seen the movie at the 2012 Garden State Film Festival, where it won the best picture award and set attendance records, I was witness to the way the entire audience reacted to both the emotional moments and the thrilling ones. A film with the ability to do both holds a special power and indicates a special talent.

A sight that I won't forget: old ladies in the audience cheering passionately as the antagonist meets his violent demise. This is how you know a movie has succeeded in involving its audience.

A great movie that is relevant to the times, emotionally involving, and as thrilling as anything Hollywood is capable of producing.
