Wonderful but very dark,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brave [DVD] (DVD)
This has to be technically one of the best written, best directed films I've ever seen. It also made me sick to my stomach and haunted me for days afterwards. I literally sobbed for the last 5 minutes solidly. I think that The Brave is a huge achievement for Depp as he wrote, directed and starred in it. He is beautifully understated and gives an aching performance as a desperate man under a self imposed death sentance (or like the other reviewer you could read that as 'boring' I suppose, no offence, but you'd need an emotional hide like a rhino to see it that way).
Don't expect blood and gore because there is none, but it's a dark, dark film that will stay with you afterwards. I thought it was one of the best films I've ever seen and I can honestly say I was glad I saw it, but I never want to see it again.
