Plot: A down-on-his-luck American Indian recently released from jail is offered the chance to "star" as the victim of a snuff film, the resulting pay of which could greatly help his poverty stricken family. Runtime: 123 mins Release Date: 30 Jul 1997
I expected this movie to be a real "stinker" based on comments I had seen. But I was pleasantly surprised to see how good a movie it is. It is a powerful story about desperate people and should have received more attention and respect than it did. The movie could use some work in places, but it deserves to be released.

I just saw this movie on DVD. As soon as I finished watching, I felt I had to see it again.The thought of being killed for money may sound bizarre, but in this movie, it's very realistic.The movie caught the mindset of a man about to be sacrified very well and you could feel the intensity. It neither condemned nor aprove his decision. But his actions all made sense, so we sympathize but not pity him.Johnny Depp played the role so well, he was able to convince us that he was just doing his best to help his beloved family.
A must see (by kimclark12)
Once again Johnny Depp proves to us what a great talent he is, not only with his acting, but directing as well. His long time career and affiliation with such talented directors shows.This movie had me mesmerized. It's beginning so quiet and the outcome leaving me in tears. The photography was beautiful leaving me feel that although the people were extremely poor, they had what they needed because they had each other. The sacrifice that Rafael makes is beyond love, beyond money.It struck me while watching the scene between Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp that Johnny is the young Brando. The <more>
scene so intense the two actors on the same level. Wow.Johnny Depp has once again outdone himself and I will look forward to whatever else he has to offer us whether it be acting or directing. This is a must see for any Depp fan and more to the point, any movie fan.
Everyone should watch it if they have the chance, but don't expect to go away smiling. (by Chili_Padmez)
Wow. I just watched The Brave. Before I saw it, I knew that it was the only film which Johnny Depp has directed. After seeing it, I can add 'unfortunately' to the beginning of the fact. In every film that he's been in, nevermind the quality of the film itself, Johnny Depp has always given a wonderful performance. As a director, he's no different. The Brave is truly outstanding. How to describe the film? It's impossibly really. All I can say is...wow. Every actor is great. It's hard to get good child actors, but here it had been done. Johnny Depp is fantastic as usual, <more>
the wife is brilliant too. I don't think that there is a single performance that I would criticise. With the film, I did something that I've never done before - I didn't move for the last 10 or 20 minutes, and when it was over, I just sat through the credits completely in shock, crying. I even stayed in front of the DVD menu for a while afterwards, completely still. How anyone can call this film 'boring' is beyond me. Heartbreaking, uncomfortable, yes, but it is far from boring. Everyone should watch The Brave if they have the chance, but don't expect to go away smiling.
The movie touched me, it is pure beauty, and johnny depp proves once more he has a lot to say. Vilko Filac's photography is terrific, Iggy Pop's music is great. and the actors are great. We expect anotherone Johnny!!!!
A man who gives his life for his family to have a better life (by petersghost13)
I thought this was an excellent movie! Johnny Depp plays an indian who has a wife and two children living in poverty. The only way he sees out for his family is to sell himself to Marlon Brando so he can see what a painful death looks like. So for $50,000, Rafael Depp agrees to be Brando's guinea pig. In his last week with his family, Rafael learns to live again and love his family. At the end of the week, he has to go back to this warehouse, where he knows he will be killed. The most interesting segment of the movie is the meeting between Rafael and the priest who he asks help from in <more>
making sure his family gets the money after he's gone. It becomes a moral dilemma for the priest and yet in the end, the priest comes through for Rafael. This is a movie not to be watched without tissues!
Beautiful movie. Depp is an excellent director andactor. (by cerebro)
At the first glance one could believe that "The Brave" is an action movie: a desperate man enters in the wrong place and he has to run away in order to keep himself alive. For those who love the adventures and action movies this one could be the prefect beginning for another one. Instead, the film moves into the philosophical reflection of meaning of life and death. The story is about love and struggling against fatality.Depp gives us a beautiful movie that shows an excellent director: the photography is wonderful, the first sequence is hallucinant; the only regret is that it <more>
A Potpourri of Vestiges Review: Depp and Brando are arresting to watch in this modern day adaptation of Dr. Faustus (by murtaza_mma)
The Brave 1997 , starring Johnny Depp and Marlon Brando, serves to be an absorbing work of cinema for the intelligent audience. A modern take on Dr Faustus, The Brave presents the heart-wrenching tale of a poverty-stricken American Indian family of four father, mother, and two children living in a small trailer next to a garbage dump. The father, who is only recently released from the jail, is offered the chance to star as a victim in a snuff film--a motion picture genre that depicts the actual murder of a person or people without the aid of special effects. He quickly realizes that he is <more>
worthless to his family alive. On the contrary, if he accepts the offer then his family will be paid a sum of US$50,000. After accepting the advance, he is granted a week's time to be with his family before fulfilling the terms of the agreement. Johnny Depp not only directs the film but also co-writes the screenplay in collaboration with his brother. The movie features some of the most haunting scenes ever filmed in cinema, which allow the viewers to reflect on their own lives. And the real beauty of the movie is that the violence is only implicit those on the look out out for excesses of sex and violence might be disappointed . The Brave highlights in the most poignant manner the perpetual plight of the American natives residing in the US, something that Marlon Brando vociferously raised his voice against at several junctures in his career he even refused to accept the Best Actor Oscar for his role in The Godfather . The movie features just one scene between Brando and Depp, but that scene is magical in so many ways. First, Brando's speech on life, death and sacrifice is mesmerizing to say the least. Second, Depp's facial expressions remind the viewer of the Brando of old. Third, it's one of Brando's final few screen presences... every second of his screen-time is worth cherishing. Fourth, the fact that the two characters are eternally connected despite having very little in common. The movie's improvisation on Dr. Faustus is worth appreciating: here the protagonist is willing to give away his life as oppose to his soul for a gain that's purely pecuniary in nature as oppose to knowledge . It pretty much sums up the modern society's preference for money over knowledge. Another facet that makes the movie important and appealing is that despite being a Hollywood product, it has a strong indie feel associated with it. The credit for which should go to the Depp brothers. The arresting performances from Brando and Depp lift the movie above mediocrity despite its weak direction and average performances from the support cast. So, if you are looking for something different and thought-provoking to break your daily routine of watching banal, mindless Hollywood-like films then The Brave will surely succeed in titillating your senses.For more, please visit:http://www.apotpourriofvestiges.com/
Depp try's his hand at directing and makes a solid if strange film (by lucas9648)
Considering this was Johnny Depp's directorial debut you have to cut the movie some slack. I didn't know what to think going into this movie i'm somewhat of a Depp fan and him playing an Indian with a death wish sounded interesting to me, so i bought a 0 region DVD plays anywhere off ebay since you can't get this movie in the states. It starts kind of slowly and doesn't explain itself in the beginning and when it ended i really wished the film was about a half an hour longer i wanted to see what would happen next but overall i thought it was a pretty good if flawed <more>
movie. Depp acts just as good as he always does, and Marlon Brando in a very very short but important role is about as good as you would hope considering his lack of roles in the last decade of his life. Iggy pop's music is great unlike Neil Young's in Depp's Indian related film from 1996, Dead Man. I gave the film an 8 but that rating is slightly inflated because i have to give Depp credit for trying out the director's chair in a violent and very different movie. If you're a big Depp fan or like strange movies, you might want to consider checking this one out.
