Clint Eastwood once again surprises me with one of his movies, amazing story and performances by the three main actors
What can I say? It's Mystic River, directed by Clint Eastwood, with Sean Penn, Kevin Bacon, Laurence Fishburne and Tim Robbins. But lets not judge by that.
It's simply perfect. The characters are exactly alike. I mean, you can't distinguish actor from character and I honestly couldn't think of the characters being different. Everyone, I really mean everyone, is just perfect. Sean Penn screaming in the woods scene gave me chills.
The movie has the exact same rythm as the book and it's flawless. I'm seriously speechless right now. The cinematography were stunning, the supporting actors were overwhelming and the direction couldn't be better. It's a true example of how an adaptation should be made. Bravo!
I'm not only standing in my feet applauding, I'm also writing this standing up. A masterpiece worthy of the Oscar.
