Auteur Watch - Anthony Hemingway

Damn.  Another long one.  Well, some people dream of directing TV, and they actually stay there!  It must put one in mind of prison, directing so much television.  I mean, check out the guy's tats!  But that's directing these days; some do it to tell stories, others to get on the cover of "Tattooed Director Monthly."  Others do it for the push-ups... see that most recent season of "Project Greenlight" for an example of that; maybe the only example.  But let's take a look at this thing a little closer!  It's not all Hallmark specials and "Moment of Truth"-type dealie boppers here.  We got "The Wire", we got "American Crime Story", and we got Red Tails.  I remember the ad campaign for this one, actually!  George Lucas wanted to add to his list of high-profile disasters.  You know, The Radioland Murders, Howard the Duck, what have you... well, he was clearly overdue for one.  Red Tails is a semi-comic book adaptation of the story of the Tuskegee Airmen.  I seem to remember the TV trailers differently; at about 0:51 is a shot of some soldiers about to get into their planes.  They seemed to have a little more rapper-type swagger in the TV trailers.  The focus of the movie is more on the aerial heroics, and a lot less on the experiments with syphilis that recently came to light.  I mean, why be depressing?  Why go for Oscar (TM) glory on this one?  Not like this... not like this.
Anyway, future TV directors, study this guy's résumé very carefully.  Look at all the episodes of the various things he's directed, and see if you can find a day off in there somewhere.  Get a cot!  Get yourself a comfy cot, because you'll be sleeping on the set, my friends.

Intermittent Winter Mittens

Brought to you by "Dirty John."  If you've used the IMDb at all this week, you've probably seen an ad for "Dirty John."  And if someone else comes in the room and sees that on your computer screen, they inevitably go "Eww!  What are you looking at that for?"  So PLEASE, I BESEECH YOU, someone get tired of these ads for "Dirty John" soon!  I understand that Eric Bana needs to make bank and all, but PUH-LEEEZE!!!!  Anyway, it's a down week for the box office.  No debuts this week, but big things are coming for Christmas, of course.  Aquaman, for one.  Also, I saw what was apparently a fake ad for a new, PG-13 rated Deadpool movie.  Which is a bit of a relief for me, as the Deadpool movies seem pretty NC-17 as it is.  Anyway, seeing as how there are no debuts, it is of course time to take a look at the cumulative totals instead of what's already out there.  The new The Grinch is clearly the winner, with over 200 million domestic in the bank after only five weeks... someone's bank, we don't know exactly who yet.  Next up, Bohemian Rhapsody is no slouch, with 173.6 million after six weeks.  Not bad at all for something not based on a comic book this time of year!  And of course, Tommy Maitland is going to mention his cameo at his next contract renegotiations.  He has a right to be proud.  As for me, I've taken a renewed interest in my eye floaters now that I'm on a brief vacation from my regular paying job.  There's a particularly dark small one that's been troubling me, and there's this other one that looks like a cluster of balloons on a balloon-sized string; you know, one of those hot dog-shaped balloons that balloon folders use to make sh... stuff.  But apparently, there's like, hundreds of YouTube videos on this very subject!  Serious ones!  Actual, serious ones!  Not enough to change the name of this blog, mind you, but still!  Clearly I gotta go.

Auteur Watch - Hemamset Angaza

Oh good!  Another short one.  Welp, of the four titles on the official online résumé of this Hemamset Angaza that the Internet mortals are all talking about, clearly the most prominent amongst the four is that one installment of the Barbershop series that he or she is responsible for... hey, don't laugh!  It was good enough to lead to a superhero movie!  You know, the pinnacle of Hollywood?
...I'm sorry, I've apparently / clearly made another one of my trademark Malaprop-ish errors again.  I meant to say that Hemamset Angaza... I'm having a little trouble typing these days, in addition.  You know the middle finger?  Well, I only flipped off the one driver, but apparently that was enough to cause upon me a curse.  Either that, or my finger is shedding its thick winter coat far too early, and one of those pinker, more sensitive layers of skin is exposed enough to cause me some heartbreak and pain.  Okay, back on topic.  No, the film is called Good Hair and... sorry, wrong again.  Is it Toupay or Not Toupay Joe's Bed-Stuy Barbershop: We Cut HeadsHAIR???  What can me say, folks, this is me legacy.  You ever meet anyone like that?  You're about to tell someone the answer to a riddle you're posing, or a story you're telling, and the other person tries to guess IN THAT VERY INSTANT.  I mean you're just about to tell them and they go "A trace of gallium arsenide?" or "Cow bell?" or "Bruce Willis was a ghost all along?"  It's usually me doing that!  I don't get it!  Anyway, now that I've actually gone back to look, the title seems to be In Our Heads About Our Hair... I don't get it.  Must be the cultural difference or something.

Possession Obsession

Drat.  I thought I had The Exorcist on DVD.  But, I did happen to happen upon Peter Hyams' 1999 classic, End of Days, and because I'm in a lazy pinch, it will just have to suffice.  I just wish his films weren't so ambiguous... I mean, is that a good guy or a bad guy in the enclosed pic?  That's Leon Vitali, right?  Anyway, all these deliberations are in honor of the solo debut this week, something called The Possession of Hannah Montana Hannah GraceIt's a make-or-break moment for its star, Shay Mitchell.  She was one of the "Pretty Little Liars," but now she's on her own... I guess.  Is the show still on?  What channel?  Oh well.  It's at the library, so that's some legitimacy, about all some shows can ask for these days.  Kinda hard to be in a position of power for the next round of contract renegotiations, however, when your big film debuts at #7, unfortunately.  I mean, if it was an indie pic in 300 theaters, and getting early Oscar (TM) (R) (C) buzz, that's a different story.
But I did want to mention some depressing news I heard this weekend... I'm sorry, I'm so depressed about it that I'm not even going to post a hyperlink to the story.  Not that I didn't anticipate it happening, mind you; that's how cynical I am, but the headline had to do with some accusers against noted astrophysicist and heir to Carl Sagan's throne, Neil deGrasse Tyson.  And I couldn't help but read that and think, c'mon.  Well, the various movements involved, I guess they have to keep trying, but really.  Isn't Bill Cosby and one of the Weinsteins good enough?  Now we have to go after the scientists, too?  How about when the Oscars (TM) (C) (R) get a hot young starlet to hand out the yearly technical awards?  Can we shut that down too?  It's sexist, and body shames the rest of us non-celebrity losers, for two. 
But the testing of these things must go on.  Louis C.K. might come back, Kevin Spacey never ever will, Geoffrey Rush might come back, and Morgan Freeman... again, c'mon.  But I think the official charges against Morgan Freeman were that some women were made "uncomfortable" by him.  I don't know what the punishment is for that, exactly, but let's see if it's affecting anything yet... nope, The Shawshank Redemption is still the #1 movie on the IMDb, as of this writing, and always will be, forever and ever amen.  Stephen King's short stories seem to translate better into movies somehow, go figure.

Auteur Watch - Helaine Mildred Head

How much bad TV's a girl gotta direct to get a little respect around here?  For some, like Helaine Head, about 15 years' worth.  And this was just before the great TV Renaissance, which I think we can all agree began exactly in 1989 with "Seinfeld" and "The Simpsons," right?  But for those lucky few like Helaine, she got to work with Spielberg, took one look at him and thought to herself, Hell!  If he can do it... What they don't usually realize, of course, is that he's got a whole team to back him up, for one thing.  Not to mention the respect of the studio heads.  It can't hurt.  But to be fair, 15 years is a pretty great run.  I've only got 13 years to go in my current job to get 15; hope my back holds up and out that long.  As for Helaine, well... she's helping to mentor the next generation through such projects as Burt and the Wall Children and others.  You can find all of them under the "Miscellaneous Crew" section of her IMDb page.

Ralph Breaks the Box Office

See?  They don't need Pixar anymore!  Well, ol' Walt's cryogenically frozen head must be smiling right now in its chamber, awaiting a donor body like Mark Wahlberg or Arnold Schwarzenegger 20 years ago, for (Wreck-It) Ralph Breaks the Internet is #1 this weekend.  "The Simpsons" alum Jim Reardon helped to write this one, and Ralph Wiggum broke my brain many seasons ago with his various nonsensical musings.  It's all connected.  Of course, the Internet has won for some time now, and it seems to be resilient enough for just about any pop culture phenomenon, porn-based or otherwise.  But television still has the ability to crush dreams like nothing else.  Take Chris Hardwick, for instance, and his show, "@Midnight," a "Jeopardy!"-ish show wherein participants, usually celebrities of varying luminescence, try to "break" or "own" the Internet by coming up with their own descriptions of various Web-based microtrends, often torn from the very day's headlines!  The final winner of the show's prize is apparently "owning" the internet for themselves for about five seconds, then quickly relinquishing it back to its rightful owners... probably the big media companies, despite what "Silicon Valley"'s Richard Hendricks was trying to do... I'm still not sure what.  A people's Internet?  No more monthly fees?  I could probably use a little relief from my bills for a while, personally.  How about you?
Anyway, so that's one sequel.  Creed II is another, a continuation of the story of Rocky Balboa, as some of you might know... but with a twist!  Ivan Drago is back, and trying to ... horn in?  Trying to steal the show.  The Cold War might not be back in full, but I think even Putin might be smiling a little bit.  Oh, it's getting glasnost-algic in here... what?  What did I say?  Yes, as long as there be a Hollywood, it looks like there will always be a boxer's tale to be told.  Is that one of the seven?  Cowboy, astronaut, politician, boxer... I don't know the rest.  Rise-fall, fall-rise, Black Cop White Cop, and Stop That Wedding!  More "Simpsons" for ya.  But the public likes these boxer stories, and Hollywood likes what the public likes, and the actors like them because they have an excuse for working out for the part.  Miles Teller and Jake Gyllenhaal, for two.
So, there seem to be three sequels this weekend, and four remakes.  We got The Grinch, there's A Star is Born, there's Driving Miss Daisy, and another remake of Robin Hood.  This time, it's the Kingsman kid himself, on loan away from Matthew Vaughn.  How'd he manage that?  And didn't Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe already do a definitive enough version of all this already?  Or even Kevin Costner to a degree?  No, apparently not.  It's just one of those stories now, like The Mummy or Tarzan or Sherlock Holmes or Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life is Calling, a perennial that can be re-told innumerable numbers of times.  Oh, and I should add The Joker, as in Batman's most profitable arch-nemesis.  Isn't he getting his own series now or something?

Auteur Watch - Eric Haywood

Just as Harvey Pekar once found that there were suddenly many more people than just himself named Harvey Pekar, so too it is with Eric Haywood.  I mean, there's this Eric Haywood, who plays the tuba.  Then there's this Eric Haywood who plays pedal steel guitar... a far cry from tuba, indeed.  Then there's Unit Driver Eric Haywood, of The Holding fame.
But I suppose, when you get right down to it, all of their IMDb résumés pale in comparison with this week's Auteur, Eric Haywood, whose highest profile gig is working on the acclaimed "Empire."  Not that Four of Hearts isn't great and all.  You can tell because it's got that blue "HD" band at the top of... I hesitate to call it a "poster."

Post-Election Stress Disorder

Drat.  Well, the Old White Men are surely rejoicing this weekend because they've still got Florida and Georgia... for now.  And, no need for a prolonged Brooks Brothers riot this time either!  And Roger Stone is still out of jail, and dressing fabulously.  Guy must be doing something right!  Meanwhile, I hope that Dish (TM) (R) (C) and HBO (C) (R) (TM) resolve their dispute real soon.  I think Dish (C) (TM) (R) wants more money probably.  That's usually how these things work.  Piracy is not a victimless crime, so why does it feel like I'm still in the sea, trying to fend off the sharks while staying afloat at the same time?
Oh well.  I complain too much as it is.  Meanwhile, at the Global Storytelling Factory, J. K. Simmons Rowling has clearly decided that giving away all that sweet, sweet "Harry Potter" money and writing non-fantasy YA novels for a hobby... was a really terrible idea.  Back to the Hollywood sulphur mines instead.  And so, the latest installment of Fantastic Beasts reigns supreme at #1.  And no mere Steve Kloves this time!  This time, the screenplay is J.K.'s and J.K.'s alone; but to let off a little anti-Hollywood steam, they're both actually going to consult on Season 7 of "Ray Donovan."  Go figure.
The second debut this week is called Instant Family, and I guess it means that Mark Wahlberg had so much fun on the two Daddy's Home movies that he's decided to keep working with writer-director Sean Anders.  Well, David O. Russell has moved on to greener pastures, and P. T. Anderson, well... that was another one-time thing.  Marky Mark will always be grateful for every auteur he's hitched his star to.  Even that hack Ridley Scott, that's right.  Even though he ended up having to donate his salary for charity, it was still so worth it.  As for Rose Byrne, well... I thought she was married to someone.  The IMDb has to scale back some of the information they give out for free, clearly.  When she goes to Spago's, she has to keep reminding people "I was in Brides Maids, you know!"  Even though she doesn't care for that kind of humour.
And finally, our third debut this week is a return for the new Steve McQueen, the Oscar-winning director of 12 Years a Slave.  His latest is called Widows and it's getting the critical acclaim and poor box-office performance you'd expect from something like that.  Another one of those movies I have to get to at some point.  What hole in the plot must I overlook in order to enjoy the critical height it reaches?  Speaking of which, what about the Coens' latest, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs?  Is it chopped liver?  No big ad campaign for it?

Auteur Watch - Dennis Haysbert

When you've worked with a long string of hacks like Michael Mann, Jonathan Kaplan and Lewis Teague... ugh... one can't help but think to themselves, man!  I should become a director!  For Dennis Haysbert, however, he's clearly opted to just live with the pain.  Having tried directing only once, and that was for a show he was already on, well... not terribly adventurous, is it?  But a 7.7 rating, as of this writing, that's... pretty good, right?  They don't yet have TV rankings by a single episode, but that's coming.  A few SQL statements in the right place on the server side, some JavaScript on the website side... some nerds could stand to make a few more millions off that, no?  Or we could just rely on good old fashioned wetware memories?  What are the greatest TV moments in a single episode?  Who shot J.R., Ellen coming out of the closet, Newhart waking up from his eight season fever dream, Alan Alda crying on "M*A*S*H", the last episode of "Breaking Bad," what have you... nope, sorry, an episode of "The Unit" will probably fall down into that obscure middle ground where nothing escapes.  As for the worst television moments... so many things to Google (TM) (R) (C), so little time.  Here's a web page, but... it seems to be just some terrible things in regular history, not TV history.  Let's try to FOCUS here, people!  Speaking of which...

The Grinch Who Stole Veteran's Day

I tell you darlings, I get more hits when people don't think I'm coming back!  Well, it's a good old fashioned box office: family friendly, nostalgia friendly, what have you.  All the new, edgy stuff didn't fare so well this weekend!  The new Salander pic without James Bond OR Rooney Mara; she's all grown up and doing mom roles already, sigh.  The latest J. J. Abrams thing that will leave you wondering which door you used to get into the theatre, and... well, that's it for the debuts.  No, the big new, great-place-to-dump-off-your-kids-4-2-hours is the latest incarnation of the Grinch.  And who does the voice of this new CGI Grinch?  Why, an Englishman, of course!  Sure, it's superstar and one of the ten busiest actors working today, Tom Wilkinson Benedict Cumberbatch.
...I almost forgot to mention my corporate sponsor.  Strange because I've got one standing right behind me right now.  This blog post is brought to you by Tall Guys Who Don't Play Basketball.  Tall Guys Who Don't Play Basketball!  No, really, it's an original question they've never heard before.  You're the first!  Anyway, it's of course not just a victory for Mr. Cumberbatch (spoiler alert: it actually is) and not just for the estate of Dr. Seuss... why hasn't the MeToo or the TimesUp movements revoked that guy's license yet?  Or Rand Paul?  Just because he comes up with rhymes real nice doesn't actually make him a doctor, you know!  No, it's also a victory for another Pixar-ish studio called Illumination.  I'd post a link to it, but the IMDb wants you to pay for that privilege.  So, I'll do the next best thing and post a link to Christopher Meloni... sorry, Meledandri.  I always get those two mixed up, as you may know.  This blog post is clearly also brought to you by typos.  Typoes!  Every blog post has 'em.  Yes, this mega-producer and amateur Vladimir Putin lookalike clawed his way up through traditional Hollywood the old fashioned way.  80s hits like Quicksilver and Opportunity Knocks... you know, movies they don't show on TV anymore.  Not because they're terribly indecent, mind you.  It's just that... well, let me put it this way.  When's the last time you heard a song like Lighthouse's "Pretty Lady" on the radio?  Anyone ever request to hear it?  Or how about April Wine's "Caught in the Crossfire"?  Ever hear THAT on the radio?  Anyone ever request to hear it?  Did you even KNOW there's a band called April Wine?  You know, I'll bet there's a fascinating story behind that name.  Well, they used to be called The Silver April Wine, but that was the early '70s, a time of one 45 minute song on an album and what not.
But then, after 1994's Trial By Jury... I'm not sure exactly how one would categorize that.  It's kind of like how there was a spate of movies like Big in the '80s.  As David Letterman would say, you got your Big (ding), you got your 18 Again (ding), you got your Regarding Henry (BUZZER)... maybe it was all John Grisham's fault, and maybe Bill Clinton to an extent.  Because there was Trial By Jury and The Juror.  That was another good one.  O.J. Simpson's fault as well.  No wonder people try to get out of jury duty!  The latest one is this trial of El Chapo, a notorious drug lord, and apparently he has enough assassins working for him to make the lives of the twelve jurors a living hell.  Cocaine is still just that profitable.  But after Trial By Jury didn't post Jurassic Park-style numbers like everyone had hoped, well... it was time for Meledandri to take a little break from all the madness, all the early morning coffee runs for tempestuous Hollywood stars and producers.  This Windows 95 thing was all the rage back then.  Computers were poised to be as ubiquitous in the home as the water heater or the automatic garage door opener!  Maybe this is what the future would hold instead of the next cup of coffee for MGM's lead electrician.  And Meledandri, whatever he did to make himself useful in the CGI era, it seems to have paid off a little bit!  Sure, 2002's Ice Age doesn't seem like much of an achievement now, but there was a lot of tears, sweat and... something else involved in getting it off the ground.  Sure, he still had to get the occasional cup of coffee for Ray Romano, but why not.  A little less eyestrain involved as opposed to looking at computer screens all day.  All that's left now is to try and get that Oscar (TM) (R) (C) for Best Animated Short.  It's a start!

Auteur Watch - Peggy Hayes

Lately things don't seem the same... wait for it.  Anyway, good!  Another short one.  I appreciate that more and more as my free time grows less and less.  This ... Peggy Hayes, as the Mortals refer to her, is responsible for one feature, and one alone, and it's called Nandi.  And because I gotta do all the work around here, I can safely say that it's not at either Netflix or Scarecrow.  Scarecrow's search feature leaves a little bit to be desired, but there seems to be nothing between Nancy and (The) Nanny, so I'm going to say they don't have it.  But I would like to take this opportunity to play a little Six Degrees of Spielberg Kevin Bacon, which seems to have fallen out of favor and or flavor these days, ever since a bunch of monkeys did it on that one episode of "Friends."  I believe it's called "The One Where the Zoo Monkeys Play that Stupid Six Degrees Game."  But who to start with?  Why don't we say that Peggy Hayes directed Nandi, which stars Leland Jones as the Island of Dr. Moreau.  Leland was in Domestic Disturbance with... a bunch of people, but the quickest path is that Vince Vaughn is in it, and he was in The Lost World: Jurassic Park directed by Spielberg.  So that's three degrees of separation, but now it's just a matter of the strength of the connections.  I mean, what good is it if even Leland Jones won't return your calls?  You gotta find an entirely new path!  All together!...
So 1998 was a wash.  The kind of thing where you think you're going to direct features for the rest of your life... and, unfortunately, you act like it, so cast and crew alike think you're an a-hole.  Nine years later, no one will still let you direct, but the following opportunity comes up to be a third Assistant Director.  Hmm!  How far down the food chain is that?  But work is work, and it goes without incident, and it's now a beloved direct-to-video classic... right?  Okay, the 358th Most Loved Video of 2007.  That's ... that's not bad, right?  So that was 2007.  What a year.  The Coens' coronation at the Oscars and all that.  Which means we were overdue for a triumphant return to the biz by Peggy Hayes in 2016.  And... nothing?  I guess she won't get stuck with the nickname "Nine-Year Nandi" then.  Good for her!  ...Peggy's still just a girl's name, right?

Mr. Singer

Ooh!  A chance to do a double pun.  Anyway, maybe it's the traditional sources.  Maybe it's Tommy Maitland going on Colbert to say it's just a really, really good film.  And he's done some real crap over the years, but this one's the shi... real deal Holyfield this time.  Maybe Sacha Baron Cohen's kicking himself a little bit right now, because he'd talked a bit about doing this project for a while... or maybe Borat mentioned it.  Where was the new Bohemian Rhapsody bio-pic type deal mainly promoted?  Etsy?  Mashable?  Wherever it was, it sure worked!  Fifty million domestic?  It's apparently a Fox movie that probably didn't get promoted on Fox News.  But it is nevertheless a triumph for the old guard of the likes of Peter Morgan, a one-man screenplay machine, and Bryan Singer, a one-man directing machine.  He's back!  Jack the Giant Slayer is all forgiven!
Meanwhile, in second place, Disney tries to breathe new life into an old standard.  In this case, it's that old Christmas standby called the Nutcracker.  Now Balanchine free!  Well, someone at Disney figured if you attached a couple of realms to it, who knows?  Maybe it'll be big at the box office.  But it's too scary to be a Christmas release, so how about the week after Halloween?  Who knows?  Maybe it'll be such a hit, it'll still be around in time for Christmas, like how the first Home Alone started out at Christmas, then stuck around the next THREE MONTHS.  Can we capture that lightning in a bottle again, asks every studio head ever?
Our third debut this week is... oh!  It's a Tyler Perry joint!  I think he's moving away from his Christian base and trying to get some of that Me Too / Time's Up magic, dare I say.  Well, who isn't, really?  But his fall 2018 film is called Nodoby Nobody's Fool... I just can't type today!  Reminds me of this stupid overly sexual ad for boner pills that says on it "I gotta Dig Bick!"  Yeah, we know, we're the ones with the filthy minds.  A lot of old guys seem to get stuck with these ads.  X-rated ads that say basically "Hey, 70-year old guy!  Buy our medication-type substance and screw like you're 20 again!  And here's some free, complementary porno DVDs while you're at it."  Wonder how their wives feel about these letters?  I guess they tolerate it as much as they can without stabbing their husbands in the eye with the serrated bread knife.  This just in: I've been told I have the wrong hyperlink.  At #3 this week isn't a 1936 film starring Edward Everett Horton and Glenda Farrell.  It's called Nobody's Fool and... sorry, got it wrong again.  That was the 1986 film of the same name, starring Rosanna Arquette and Eric Roberts.  Yeesh.  And because I just love Robert Benton so much, as faithful readers of this thing can attest to, I'm not even going to post a hyperlink to the 1994 film of the same name... damn, did it anyway.  No, Tyler's new film is called Nobody's Fool... sorry, that's a link to a music video by Bon Jovi's old fool, Cinderella.  Poor bastard, didn't even get a VH1 Behind the Music special out of the deal.  Now, I've probably written this before, but I am just obsessed with it.  I checked Tyler Perry's IMDb page once, and there it was as plain as day, he was going to make a film called Tyler Perry's A Jazz Man's Blues.  WHERE IS IT?  ...oh!  Here's a link to mere rumors and gossip, but it's still something!  Apparently it's to be a post-WWII pic, so it'll be a stretch.  He doesn't seem to do period pieces.  They all take place in the not-so-spectacular now, where Christian values seem to have been all but forgotten.  But we do get to her some right pretty speeches, don't we?  I was fairly entertained by a soliloquoy in one of his plays, "Neighbors from Hell," I think it was.  Got that from my local library.  Also something called XXI: O'Day, which I've been meaning to review, but... I'd be the first one!  Wouldn't want to screw something like that up, now, would I?

Will Success Spoil Dennis Lehane?

Violence against children.  Is there any more satisfying topic for a Hollywood movie to tackle?
Or even maybe for society in general?  Ben Affleck's 2007 directorial effort, Gone Baby Gone, starts with a child abduction case that gets some attention from the local media... it's a Boston story, by the way.  You can tell from the severely Boston-local actors and actresses that David O. Russell would later try to get for his 2010 feature, The Fighter.
Well, the first half of the feature starts off promisingly enough.  We have the inherent conflict of some private detectives being called in by members of the grieving family, even though every cop in the city seems to be working on the case.  Morgan Freeman gets wind of this, and goes to see the two detectives himself.  He lists some grim child abduction statistics and... hey!  That would be so perfect for the trailer!  Then he says that he doesn't care who cracks the case, just as long as it gets done.  Perhaps in a case as grim-looking as this one is turning out to be, some outside help would be just the thing, for the police in general, and for everyone more specifically... something like that.  Casey Affleck, Ben's younger, and now Oscar (TM) (C) (R)-winning brother, is one of those detectives.  Michelle Monaghan is his partner-in-crime... solving crime, so to speak.  This seems like the start to a Luc Besson pic to me, for some reason.  Also, I know I should like Michelle Monaghan... I'll get there eventually, just give me time to catch up.
Well, this crack team of McKenzie Kenzie and Gennaro, they generate some leads right away, even slightly impressing the team of Poole and Bressant, the two cops they've been more or less assigned by Morgan Freeman to work with.  Morgan Freeman's character name, incidentally, is Jack Doyle.  And as you know, I'm a recovering Name-ist, and, spoiler alert, I don't recall the filmmakers relying on that old standard trope of someone turning to the character in a movie named Jack and saying "JACK!!!  Be careful, he's dangerous" ... something like that.  It's kind of like how the hot young actress at the Cannes Film Festival gets to the top of that staircase, then turns for the paparazzi.  Thankfully, my falling off the Name-ism wagon is totally worth it, because at one point, the male detective, Casey Affleck, asks "Bressant.  What is that?  French?  Would you like a nice red wine with your boudin?"  I may have mis-remembered that, but the guy does confess to being from Louisiana originally, and not an all-important native of Boston.
As you would expect from a crackling mystery yarn, there's more to the story than what's merely on the surface.  In this case, the general ennui of Boston seems to be covering the list of suspects in this child kidnapping case, but once that's peeled back, and once they more or less nail down the whereabouts of the young girl who was kidnapped, it's not hard to have some suspects to point to.  It's about a medium-sized list of suspects in this story.  Sometimes everyone's a suspect, sometimes it's just a stranger or a coincidence, but... needles to say, a rather un-matronly picture is painted of the mother whose child was kidnapped.  And I'll confess it, I think I even said out loud that the daughter was probably in a better place!  But it was said in the comfort of my own home, mind you.  Then we find out that, not only is the mother a bit of a cokehead, but she brings her daughter along sometimes when she's running drugs for the local Haitian drug kingpin, and... time out for a second.  Isn't all that, um... extremely illegal in this society?  Even in Boston?  Don't people go away for life for that?  Aren't there still people serving rather ungodly sentences for much less involving pot?  As Sonny Valerio once quipped, am I dreamin' here or what?  (...go to the bottom of the page.  Alas, someone hasn't made that billion dollars yet, coming up with a system for hyperlinks that will take you to a specific centimeter on a page.  But it's coming!  And they'll announce their IPO on Colbert when it happens, trust me.)  But it is worth it for the joke.  Did you hear about the cokehead mother who took her child along with her on a drug run?  You know, transporting drugs for the local drug lord, so she says "What am I supposed to do?  Leave her at the day care like an idiot?"  Of course, detective-for-hire Kenzie isn't too far removed from the drug lords himself.  He's familiar with "Cheese," and this other wicked fat dude named... I think it's the Bubba Rogowski character.  Somehow I missed that, even though the Closed Captioning is always on in our house now.  Reminds me of that old Brian DePalma comedy Wise Guys... damn, they don't have it on the IMDb "Quotes" page.  Some old chestnut about how organized crime is the fourth biggest employer in New Jersey, something like that.  Gotta hand it to that Brian DePalma: he was there to fix the first Star Wars early on, sure, but he  has the ability to take any genre and not quite do it right.
Anyway, so this Bubba Rogowski ends up doing some detective work for Kenzie.  Long story short, Bubba ends up tracking down some rather seedy characters we're introduced to early thanks to Poole and Bressant... my faithful viewing companion didn't even stop to notice that one of them was Hector Salamanca!  Well, he was a little bit younger back then.  Anyway, long story short... I know, a bit too late for that... Kenzie's second stop at the House of Usher is with the two detectives.  One gets caught in some crossfire, the source of which is never found.  They apparently never determined exactly how many people were in the house to begin with.  But Kenzie eventually stumbles upon the big moment of truth.  Spoiler Alert.  I mean, this is what we're building up to, really.  No amount of warning might be able to fully heal us afterwards.  Violence against children.  How grim is this going to get?  We get into that room, there's a sink with some blood in it and a pair of underwear, we're treated to a mercifully short shot of a dead child, we have an accused child molester saying "It was an accident."  It's the kind of thing a really hip critic might refer to today as "tragedy porn" or some word other than tragedy.  Long story short, Kenzie shoots the child molester in the head.  Time for the second act of the film.
And it's at this point that, I don't know... I mean, things were starting to break down already, but depending on your mood, then they really start to go South.  Not for critics of the time of the film's initial release, apparently!  Hailed as a classic, but not really hoisted on the shoulders of the moviegoing public that much.  I mean, it broke even, and Affleck directed again and all that.  And even though Detective Kenzie did what anyone else would do in a similar situation, and it's an unusual situation... at least, one would hope.  I mean, there's a gun, a dead child, and a guy saying "It was an accident".  One might not want to wait for the cops to show up.  However, Kenzie seems to regret his decision made in haste, but he's not exactly repenting in leisure for the rest of the movie.  Now the movie enters either Serpico territory, or The Verdict / ...And Justice for All territory, taking on the system as a whole.  I mean, if you're going to tackle corruption, why not aim for the stars?
No one is spared.  Well, Ed Harris's... I mean, Bressant's final gesture is kind of funny.  What starts out as a simple robbery of a bar quickly turns into harassment of a very specific witness who's not very good at keeping his mouth shut.  Also, there's something about that Boston air.  I mean, a guy gets shot in the chest twice, yet is able to run to the tallest building in town?  Sure, the guy ends up dying, but... I mean, man!  What an epic shot!  Could've ended the movie on that shot!  And a hundred lesser movies would have, but this is not your average movie.
I'll try to tiptoe around the ending as best I can.  I mean, there are spoilers and there are spoilers.  But consider the grim statistics.  That they're on the film's IMDb Quotes page certainly helps: half of all the children in (abduction) cases are killed flat out, and if the abductor isn't caught on Day One, only about ten percent of the cases are solved.  But how about the statistics on films about child abductions?  Do you recall a film about a child abduction in which the child isn't returned?  In the original Ransom! from 1956, the abductors of the child aren't even shown!  That's how horrible the crime is.  As of this writing, there are almost 9,000 films and or TV shows with the keyword "kidnapping" associated with it... The Green Mile?  Shows you how good my memory is.  I thought it was just a boring, 3-hour prison film.  Anyway, despite the pleadings of Detective Gennaro, who takes the side of the status-quo, so to speak, Detective Kenzie busts the case wide open.  When will the fools ever learn?  It's not the child kidnapping that gets you, it's the cover-up!  A similar argument is made in Win-Win, that even though the mother's a bit of a trainwreck, she's still a mother and we need to respect that... ooh!  Amy Ryan's in that one too!  She goes the opposite way, if memory serves, in terms of character.  Affleck and Oscar-winning cinematographer John Toll, a long way from Braveheart and Legends of the Fall, breathe new life into that old visual cliché of a bunch of cop cars coming up, their lights blaring, as if to say that justice is indeed being served.  I look at it a little differently now, now that I just saw it last night.  It seems like the film wants to have it both ways.  We have the gruesome murder of a (different) child, then the tonic to make the pain of that go away.  If that's the case, maybe they should've opened with the murdered child, then have two hours of tonic.  Similar to how Spike Lee's Clockers opens with grisly crime-scene photos... that's all of that I've seen, I can't vouch for the rest.
