Movie #90 – 21 May 2012
The Woodsman (USA – 2004) Directed by Nicole Kassell
A movie without a lot of dialogue. It tells the tragic story of this man through a visual realism, unadorned and simple, reminiscent of some American cinema of the ’70s. Even the figure of the hero is tied to the dynamics of the anti-hero from the filmography of those years. It generates in the viewer a kind of hate/love feeling toward that man. A film that does not give answers, but raises questions, discussion and thoughtful reflections. No one is free from defects and love, perhaps, have more facets of what we believe. This film is certainly not easy, but definitely worth seeing. Kevin Bacon is great.
