    Synopsis


    Demolition
    Davis Mitchell (Jake Gyllenhaal) has a comfortable life as a Wall Street investment banker, but it's brought to an abrupt halt when his wife is killed in a car accident. As he struggles to move on from this tragedy, he reflects on the stagnant marriage he had with his late spouse. He also becomes obsessed with dismantling the machines surrounding him as a coping mechanism, and begins a relationship with a customer-service representative for a vending-machine company (Naomi Watts) after sending them multiple complaint letters. Director Jean-Marc Vallée directed this black dramedy, which made its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

      It wasn't the same film the trailer showed.

      When I saw the trailer for this picture, I really thought Gyllenhaal had his sights set on an Oscar. Then I saw the film. Gyllenhaal's performance is great, as always, but the film is very heavy-handed in its approach. (At one point, Gyllenhaal's character even says aloud, "Everything is a metaphor.") You don't have to beat us over the head with the allegories and symbolism, Hollywood. Your audience is smarter than you think.

      Very compelling drama about loss, and change. Gyllenhaal is brilliant, and the rest of the cast does a fine job. Watching the "Demolition" of the Gyllenaal's character while he works through the demolition of his old life is gripping - in a what will happen next sort of way. This film is definitely worth your time. It is mostly a strong story acted well.

      A man becomes a widower and literally demolishes everything he owns in order to rebuild and put his life together. Blatantly metaphorical, Demolition is a rare kind of film you don't see often and it's uniqueness is admirable.
