4.0 out of 5 stars "And I thought I was good lookin'!", 29 Dec 2007
By 
This review is from: Lookout [DVD] [2007] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Four years ago, Chris Pratt (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) was a fun-loving high school jock who took one too many chances behind the wheel and ended up with a severe brain injury. Now he lives with his blind roommate Lewis (Jeff Daniels), goes to rehab classes, and works as a bank custodian at night. He's happy when a ne'er-do-well ( Matthew Goode) befriends him, but before he knows it, Chris is involved in a bank heist.

Gordon-Levitt is such an interesting young actor. He makes small indy movies (like "Brick" and "Mysterious Skin") that are invariably well-made, memorable character studies. He has the maturity and charisma to pull off a sensitive performance, displaying a range of emotions with just the pained expression in his eyes. Jeff Daniels gives an understated performance as the sadder-but-wiser friend, and Matthew Goode is convincing as the lowlife creep who leads Chris astray.

Writer-director Scott Frank has created a bleak, moody film reminiscent of "Fargo," with frozen snowscapes and gritty characters (although the soft-ball ending disappointed me). Recommended for those looking for something different, a quiet movie about dealing with adversity and making foolish choices.
