Reviews

Stylishly shot with a jazz soundtrack, this is an atmospheric and moody British thriller set in Newcastle; the first feature to be directed by renowned theatre director and musician Mike Figgis. Brendan (Sean Bean) gets a job as a cleaner in a jazz club. Whilst chatting up an American waitress (Melanie Griffiths), he overhears two hitmen talking about putting the pressure on the club's owner (Sting) for American property dealer Cosmo (Tommy Lee Jones). When Cosmo turns up in person, it transpires that it is not only the club that he has his eyes on: the bar's waitress turns out to be his ex-girlfriend.

Director Mike Figgis made this somber noir over a decade ago and hardly anyone noticed. This whole film is like falling rain at night. It is dark and somber, and very stylish. Everything works perfectly in this unusual film.
Tommy Lee Jones gives his typical wry bad guy performance as a developer involved in politics who wants to take over an entire town in England. The only thing left standing in his way is jazz nightclub owner Sting. Sting gives such a cool performance here you've got to believe he spent hours watching Steve McQueen films. Tangled up in this battle of wills is drifter Sean Bean (Boromir in Lord of the Rings) who meets waitress Melanie Griffith, who may do more than just waitress. As Irish drifter Bean begins a tentative romance with Griffith things turn dangerous and when Bean thwarts an attempt on Sting's life he goes to work at the club.
There are a couple of suprises in this film. Melanie Griffith tones down that sex kitten persona and gives a realistic performance as she tries to change her past and stick with Bean. The real revelation is Sting, who nearly steals this film with his ultra cool and natural performance. Maybe being in his home town of Newcastle brought out his best, not wanting to let the blokes down. He certainly doesn't.
There are solid performances from the always great Tommy Lee Jones and Sean Bean, and a memorable noir atmosphere. This has always been hard to find, and little known, but now that it is coming out on DVD maybe it will find the audience it deserves. This is a terrific film and you'll want to take a look at this one...

'Stormy Monday' is one of those films that isn't as well known as it deserves to be. It is a slow paced thriller and a rather simple plot with a few twists and turns in it.

What makes this movie special is it's excellent atmosphere that instantly absorbs you in, you can almost imagine that you are enjoying a nice evening out on the town whilst watching some scenes, complete with a wonderful Jazz soundtrack. The characters are all interesting, and the casting is superb. Sting, a more than capable actor is fantastic as the club owner Vinnie, who is very confident in the role, the lovely Melaine Griffin is perfect as this film noir's femme fatal, and Tommy Lee Jones and Sean Bean, who were rather unknown actors at the time are also good, particularly Lee Jones who gives a powerful performance as the American businessman with enough money to burn. Sting's wife is played by former Bond girl and future 'Coronation Street' star Prunella Gee.

The movie was filmed in Newcastle, a great location and the views of the River Tyne are beautiful. 'Stormy Monday' was Mike Figgis' first feature film and a stunning debut from him. Even now, this must surely still be considered as one of his finest achievements.

Note: The DVD also includes an interesting, exclusive director's commentary of the film.

Get Carter was Newcastle in the dying days of the 60, s early 70, s rundown and still very coalmine, shipyard working class.Stormy Monday is Newcastle in the 80s.Developing and modernising hence the story of developer Tommy Lee Jones and the one thing in his way, a jazz club, Sting.I was and still am a postman in Newcastle and met all the principal actors on location at the time, and somewhere photos of me with Tommy.Melannie, Sting and Sean.
This film really deserves better recognition as a noir classic and is a great nights companion piece to Get Carter.The soundtrack is absolutely smokin, sultry and evocative.Buy this then the soundtrack.Quality Figgis film.

A dark and drawing drama, want to look away, can't stop watching.
Melanie Griffiths at her most alluring, Tommy Lee Jones powerful and disturbing. Sean Bean hypnotic, compelling viewing. Sex on legs.

I first (and last) visited Newcastle in the 1980s, so it looked just like it does in this film; elegant decadence, awaiting the money and redevelopment which must have come later.
Whether they came via suspect American "businessmen" like the one Tommy Lee Jones plays in Stormy Monday, who knows?
Sean Bean and Melanie Griffiths take the romantic lead with cool 1980s haircuts and clothes, while Sting is Finney, a Jazz club owner whom Cosmo (Jones) is trying to involve in a land development deal.
The views of Newcastle, always including the river Tyne are spectacular.
Also spectacular is the jazz which infiltrates almost every part of this film "noir".

take a great location, a well-crafted story, some great direction and exquisite acting by Sting (is he acting? it looks so real) - this is superb. It never ceases to enthrall. It's probably classed as a thriller, but it's so much more than that. It is a visual feast, good acting by all the players, with real drama, pathos, and a really fulfilling storyline. Mike Figgis and the grand town of Newcastle should be rightly proud of this masterpiece.

This sultry movie set in Tyneside moves at a slow and gentle pace yet this only seems to add to the jazz atmospheric backdrop. I'm not a huge jazz fan but I couldn't help admiring the music score. Well worth a look - it depends on the mood you're in. Sean Bean is dependable as Brendan, but watch out for Sting who steals the limelight.
