Phoenix and Gyllenhaal on the same screen!.... for this?
I was looking foward to the crossover movie of Joaquin Phoenix and Jake Gyllenhaal where they prove to not just be the same person this whole time, and i would be lying if I said it didn't deliver in that regard. But this movie... was just okay.
The performances all around were stellar, with Gyllenhaal and Joaquin completely getting lost in their roles. John C. Riley was good... half of the time, the other half was just Steve Brule in a cowboy hat.
Throughout the movie i just kept thinking to myself, "so when are we gonna start wrapping up?" That's not a good sign. Don't get me wrong - where this movie goes and each scene in of itself is pretty good, the film just lacks real momentum. The film doesn't really go anywhere, which would be fine if there was a central theme for the spiraling story. But The ending was kinda poop, so that doesn't help.
I enjoyed watching it and the directions it took, but it never felt complete to me. Everything about this movie (except the exceptional performances) were just fine. Go see if you want an enjoyable and unpredictable western with good performances, but if you're hoping for this movie to prove itself as a treasure of cinema, you'll be sadly mistaken.
