Synopsis


Joe
David Gordon Green's Joe stars Nicolas Cage as the title character, the foreman of a work crew hired to poison trees before they are cleared from land owned by people who plan to develop it. One day, 15-year-old Gary (Tye Sheridan) arrives at the worksite looking for a job for both himself and his alcoholic, shiftless father. Joe hires them both, but the self-destructive dad is quickly told never to return. Gary, however, earns his keep, and soon he begins to think of Joe as a father figure. However, Joe has a prison record, and a problem keeping his explosive anger in check, and when a local man develops a grudge against him, both Gary and Joe must take a stand. Joe screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Southern Comfort

    I purchased this Blu-ray based on Entertainment Weekly recommendation. Saying it was a better than average film for Nic Cage compared to what he's been making lately. I agree with that. Though not a show stopper it was still worth a watch. It's overall context and story was good and mildly moving. And yet, it's southern charm was a little over the top for me. The strongest example of that being, a man was butchering a deer in the middle of his living room. So it's a bit rednecky but also a new environment change for us to view from our own living room, minus the dead deer.

    A Gritty and Suspenseful Indie flick in Southern backwoods style. Tye Sheridan proves again he's not just on his way to bigger and better, he has arrived. And how refreshing it is see Nicolas Cage act... Really act. First stellar performance by Cage in over a decade. You can feel the emotions of the characters as they wrestle with demons from the past, and the adversity of the present. Passion and fury are necessary ingredients here, and you can feel every morsel of both emanating from Cage's character, Joe.

    Hard to watch, but worth it.

    Joe is not the most pleasant experience you'll have watching a movie, but that doesn't mean it isn't a very good film. Don't go in expecting another "crazy" Nicolas Cage performance - you won't get that - but as a slow boiling, emotionally loaded drama, it's up there in the list of best movies of 2014. It's frequently on sale, so if that sounds like your cup of tea, pick Joe up.

    David Gordon Green crafts yet another great southern drama with spot-on dialogue and amazing performances abound in this creepy, moving story that sucks you right in. Bought this as an impulse purchase and I'm glad I did. Not very often am I a Nicolas Cage fan, but he does a great job in this, along with the rest of the cast.

    Nicholas Gage is at his acting best, he has developed this character to the point that the viewer is totally enthralled with the plot and characters. Its a great come back story about an abused boy being helped and guided by an ex-con trying to live his life as best as he can.

    The movie has a haunting atmosphere and the drama is so rich that it is hard to remain emotionally detached to the story. It is a powerful and honest drama, one of the best from 2014. Nicholas Cage is brilliant in this as well as the rest of the cast.
