This is a must for all Rickmaniacs. Or those with professor fantasies. Probably also for those who just enjoy black comedies. Although maybe not so much the latter.
I've watched it three times now, but to be honest only to drool over Alan. The plot is messy and tries too hard to be clever. But I can overlook that, cos the film involves Alan Rickman doing one of his students on a desk. *shrugs* What more can you ask for?
Rather melodramatic and just a touch past the realm of possibility. It is still entertaining and well acted for the most part. If you are a fan of any of the main cast then I would recommend buying it so long as the price is good.
Then a thumb arrives.
Nobel Son, sad to say, works against itself. From a setup dominated by Rickman's inflated and amusingly self-absorbed character, we're quickly enmeshed in a dysfunctional family that is plotted to be snarkily venomous but catches a case of directorial auteurism.
The kidnapping turns out to have stories within stories, all of which relate to Eli, and which in turn lead to another kidnapping. There are more malicious stories within stories, some of which might even be true (everyone is a good liar), plus a revelation or two. Do we wind up with ironic and extra-legal justice or just too much lime juice on the mango?
Unfortunately, the director, Randall Miller, isn't up to controlling a convoluted story of some wit and brittleness but which demands style and clarity. He repeatedly uses flash cuts and speed-ups, along with a loud, hip music score. What malicious wit there is, is lost. Particularly in a long scene in a mall involving a car as a prize, Miller's editing, with all his pyrotechnic flash, loses track of the cleverness of the switch.
Miller also has to deal with a cast that, except for Rickman and Mary Steenburgen, is only competent enough. Many seem to have cut their acting teeth in television productions with all those interchangeable roles and actors.Read more ›
This is a perfect indie film with a bizarre script with endless twists and turns, excellent actors in quirky, often off-putting roles, a loud, funky soundtrack, and a pace that's so quick you'll need to see the movie twice to absorb it all. The ensemble cast is headed by Alan Rickman at his sarcastic best, wallowing happily in his role as a heartless husband and father. He's wonderful. Steenburgen's role is never fully explained; why would she stay married to such a beast? Bill Pullman is great as the cop who investigates the kidnapping. He's sympathetic, professional, and ultra-creepy all at the same time. Bryan Greenberg is good as the kidnap victim. Danny de Vito and Ted Danson round out the cast in small parts.
The exciting script will keep you guessing and the acting is top-notch. Recommended.

I bought this to add to my growing collection of Rickman films. He is, of course, brilliant - snarling, unreasonable, egotistical academic. Read morePublished on 7 Oct. 2013 by H. Slinn
I couldn't even watch the whole film...The whole thing was so terrible that even Alan Rickman seemed a bad actor !Published on 7 Aug. 2013 by Isabelle PASCHETTA
I bought this at Christmas time for my Family. It was a good film, but I expected a little more owing to the fact that Alan Rickman was in it.Published on 24 April 2013 by KarCup
Alan Rickman plays the philandering professor type with the long suffering wife and child. Have we seen this somewhere before? Read morePublished on 31 Dec. 2012 by Lorne
I love Alan Rickman. To say I was disappointed with this drivel is an understatement, I hope he leaves this off his CV in the future. Hasn't done his career any favours. Read morePublished on 19 April 2012 by Georgina
