What do these two films have in common?
Nothing as far as the films go, but I watched both of them tonight and enjoyed both to a great degree.
"Jack" was first then came "Hobo"
I did hear allot about both films and for both different reasons. First for the performances and the second for all the blood and guts and violence.
Lets get this started right.
Jack Goes Boating (2010)
Jack is a single man that is very easy going and allot of things make him nervous.He has a close friend Clyde(John Ortiz)at work that is also close friends with his wife Lucy(Daphne Rubin-Vega).Lucy works with a woman Connie(Amy Ryan)that they pair up with Jack for a dinner date.
Phillip Seymour Hoffman is absolutely stunning for his performance of Jack and his insecurities also his tender and angry moments when the scene calls for it.He also Co-Produced and Directed the film.
With the exception of Amy Ryan playing Connie the other 3 actors had already begun getting comfortable with their parts on stage in March of 2007. It seems so effortless when they came on screen, it really made for more effect in their roles(for me anyways)I of course found this out after the film when watching the extras.
Until Next Time
