"The eyes are the windows to the soul--You gotta learn how to draw your curtains"
20 March 2014 | by doug_park2001See all my reviews

TOMORROW YOU'RE GONE is no thriller, which is not, of course, an entirely bad thing. It's a strange, dreamlike, and fairly uneventful film about Charlie Rankin (Dorff) being released after a four-year stint in prison, intent on wreaking vengeance on those who put him there and performing "hits" against adversaries of "The Buddha"(Dafoe), another former--now dead?--inmate who acts as his ethereal mentor. He also meets "Florence Jane" (Monaghan) the girl of many-a-guy's dreams, but not Rankin's, who just wants to be friends with her. Florence Jane, it would seem, is a sort of guardian angel figure save, perhaps, the "guardian" part. Much of it is open to interpretation, and much of it simply doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

More thematic and atmospheric than action-oriented, TOMORROW YOU'RE GONE is well-filmed and well-played, and much of the script (especially Florence Jane's) is quite memorable without being overly pretentious: See the quote from "The Buddha" used as my title here. TYG also has things to show and tell us about the futility of vengeance, the destructive nature of bitterness, and various other things.

If only the plot were better. . .
