This is one of those movies that I still pull out every once in a while and just pop in. It's absolutely entertaining, with great performances from pretty much everybody, but especially Andy Garcia and Lance Henrikson.It plays out like a good mystery/thriller should: Frustrating twists and turns, brooding atmosphere and music, and layer after layer of clues that you know are building to a big time climax. I really can't find anything to criticize about this film and I'm surprised it's IMDB rating isn't higher. If you haven't seen it, you'll be doing yourself a <more>
favor by bypassing the new releases for just one night at blockbuster, and picking this one up.
I like a good suspense story as much as anyone else, but this one really stands out. If it doesn't get the recognition it deserves, maybe because it's a "quiet" thriller, without shocking or gross-out scenes ; it relies mainly on characters and atmosphere - very moody and autumnal. For once, the killer's identity is logical and honest, but there is so much more to this, especially a graceful photography. Okay : I love this one. This is no brain candy or beer-and-popcorn, just honest, straightforward stuff, which reminded me very much of literary thriller writers like Ed <more>
A little hard to watch, because I only have one eye (by joeestlinbm)
Jennefer 8 is one of those movies that can't be duplicated. Uma Thurman was wonderful. She's beautiful even when she's blind. the movie seemed to center around the fact that she could hear better than folks who can see. The movie boggled my mind to such an extent that I was actually tired when it was over. I don't think I've ever involved myself in a movie to the extent that I did this one.I could never stop thinking about the blind lady, as handicapped as she was, and how hard she was trying to help solve the murder.This is a very easy movie to get involved in, and very <more>
This is easily one of the most underrated Hollywood films of the nineties - it's got a compelling script, beautiful performances particularly from Andy Garcia, Uma Thurman, and John Malkovitch in a short but unforgettable cameo. , some of the best cinematography ever set on film director of photography Conrad Hall later went on to shoot 'American Beauty'. , and one of the greatest scores ever written by underrated composer Christopher Young. As it is, this film is heaven from a filmmaker's perspective and a pretty damn good drama to boot. Highly recommended.
Robinson Crusoe Possible Spoilers (by lordwhorfin)
I have no idea what did Bruce Robinson in with critics of this movie. While it's so that the ending is perhaps abrupt, and that there are some small inconsistencies of plot, much of the caviling and carping about this film seems pointed in the direction that the identity of the killer was obvious.'Jennifer 8' is not an upbeat film, nor is it a standard cop drama. It is a compelling portrait of a professional on the edge and a longstanding co-dependent relationship collapsing under fire. The acting is uniformly superb, and the script up to the task. A genuine insight into the <more>
limits of human relationships is Robinson's forte, and he doesn't disappoint here.It's important to remember that small towns protect their own. That being said, I applaud Robinson for successfully evoking the closeness and claustrophobia of small towns, thus making the protective impulse, to this viewer at least, believable. Robinson succeeds with 'Jennifer 8' in ways that Sam Raimi failed in both 'A Simple Plan' and 'The Gift': Robinson convinced me that willed blindness get it? hindered the search for a dangerous killer.As with his classic, 'Withnail and I,' Robinson scores with textures, tones, and very subtle attitudes. Another commenter singles out the 'junk mail' line Garcia quotes from his dream about God God tells Garcia in his dream that God sees prayers as junk mail as 'sophomoric'. First, that's part of the point about Garcia's character. He's a bitter, adolescent guy. Although fans of Garcia's might not want to embrace it, he's not a very nice person in this film, and remains substantially unredeemed. Perhaps this resolution explains some of the hostility to this film. John Berlin Garcia is not an anti-hero, but his is fundamentally weak in some critical way. His healing has made him rigid, not clear in his thinking, self-righteous, but not necessarily right.Second, the dream about God is a very telling moment in the film because Robinson keeps it so small. It's almost a throw-away scene, but it gives great insight into both the despair and the essential shallowness of Berlin's self-reflection. It is these tendencies that lead Berlin to make a terrible mistake that nearly destroys everything in his world.I rate this a strong 8/10.
Director Bruce Robinson got robbed! Would have been nice if the film company put into their budget advertising. This movie has it all folks.First, the cast. Excellent. Several budding stars in the making. Lance Hendriksen is just fabulous. Like any great film actor there is little time to develop a character so casting must be spot on. Lance is believable from the first seconds of the opening scene. Sets the tone of his character Freddy Ross. Uma is great. Her eyes are eerie. She plays this role with softness and depth. All the characters are well thought out. Graham Beckel is just a scary <more>
dude. We don't know his name, but he plays the bad guy perfectly. Those eyes! All the supporting cast hit the bulls-eye like watching Seinfeld...memorable from the get-go.Secondly, the atmosphere. Blind girl in a school for the blind in the cold mountains--rain and snow. What more could you ask for? Thirdly, the first little nugget. Christopher Young. The soundtrack is amazing. Haunting. Beautiful. When I first saw this movie I actually searched to buy the soundtrack. I never do this. It's that good! Lastly, the gold nugget. This is a movie with a twist of an ending. Remember, it is 1992. This was not done to my recall at the time. Rent this, buy this movie and watch with close friends late at night when it rains. Trust me! A great movie for male-female company. OK...the actor I never saw before had one core scene and just for this it is worth watching. Enter the brilliance of Mr. John Malkovich! We have all seen many movies where FBI agent interrogates suspect. But Malkovich takes extremely well written dialogue and it comes alive off the page. He should have won something for this performance. What I thought was just another actor for a pivotal scene made the move. His nuances, tone, pace, timing...just being Malkovich is acting at the highest level. This should have been another scene in the movie and he now becomes a main character stealing the scenes. Incredible performance.Watch this movie. There are so many little details that are engaging. The time clock that speaks freaks you out. The empty light sockets. The sound of the mattress in the house. On and on...
"Jennifer Eight" is one of those movies that flies under the radar. For whatever reason, it never got the accolades I feel it deserves. It is a beautifully filmed, haunting movie that showcases some very fine performances. Uma Thurman is remarkable as the blind Helena, and one would be hard pressed to find fault with her very realistic performance as the would-be next victim for the serial killer. Likewise, Andy Garcia, is excellent as the tough, big city cop who is working through his own personal issues. One of the most compelling performances is that of John Malkovich. Arguably <more>
one of the best actors we have today, his commanding depiction of the hard-grilling FBI man is superb, and worth the watch just for his few cameos alone. But don't get me wrong. This movie is very, very good. It will leave you guessing to the end. Overall, beautiful cinematography, beautiful score, great thriller. Highly recommend this underrated gem. Very much worth the viewing.
Criminally underrated! PLEASE read SECOND paragraph! (by Funktapus)
OK this movie isn't perfect, in fact I remember one plot hole that really bugged me. It's already mentioned in the Goofs section so no need to go into it here. There is also a VERY BIZARRE scene where a cop is holding a baseball bat FOR NO APPARENT REASON. END SPOILER WARNING. Now please don't let that first paragraph deter you from watching this movie, it's just to explain why I couldn't give this movie a ten. As a lot of people here are saying this film is horribly underrated and has a lot going for it. It shows that being blind is not some "gift" but a <more>
horrible disadvantage. The friendship between detectives Berlin and Ross is actually believable and the movie manages to be gritty, cold and beautiful at the same time throughout. And finally the ending. Apparently the ending in the film was added after the original didn't make sense because important scenes were edited out by the studio. Not everybody here likes it but I did. In it's own gritty way it's a happy ending, of sorts.
Not your usual cops-and-baddies stuff: a strong, satisfying US debut from the English director of "Withnail & I". American audiences mostly gave this film the go-by - annoyingly, since it's one of Garcia's best and easily the equal of anything else coming out of Hollywood in '92. The plot is neat and satisfyingly knotty - Garcia excellent as always plays a big-city cop looking for the quiet life in upstate California, only to stumble right into an ongoing serial-killing case. Uma Thurman does very well as Garcia's blind love-interest who unwittingly provides <more>
the information that's needed to crack the case - but at what cost? All this and Old Granite-Face, the great Lance Henriksen - what else did you want, America?
