Thomas Jane’s accent might be pretty hard to understand, and the story is just a just a plot you’ve already seen put through the Stephen King’s _Children of the Corn_ wringer, but that doesn’t stop 1922 from being another Stephen King adaptation we can put in 2017’s “Good” column, alongside _It_ and _Gerald’s Game_ (and decidedly not alongside _The Dark Tower_).
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
***There’s always another way than murder***
Two members of a corn-farming family in 1922 Nebraska commit a crime and get away with it, but do they really? Thomas Jane and Molly Parker play the parents while Dylan Schmid is on hand as the son, who’s about 15.
Released in 2017, “1922” is a haunting crime drama/period piece with elements of horror, unsurprisingly based on a Stephen King story of the same name. The confined farm location, tone and even genre are akin to films like “The Messengers” (2007), “Husk” (2011) and “Signs” (2002). There’s also a nod to “Bonnie and Clyde” (1967).
Thomas Jane should’ve gotten an award for his performance, as he literally disappears in the role and is unrecognizable. His farm hick accent is so thick I strongly recommend using the subtitles.
The themes revolve around disloyalty, the danger of allowing hostility (hatred) to fester, the abuse of authority/manipulation and the power of conscience.
The film runs 1 hour, 42 minutes and was shot, believe it or not, in Western Australia. Additional cast: Kaitlyn Bernard appears as the kid’s neighbor girlfriend and Neal McDonough her father.
If you’re ever depressed, and think your life is crap, watch this movie. You’ll see how bad things could be.
It becomes more interesting in its second half and the subtext is good, but at times it’s also a little lifeless
When Arlette James (Molly Parker) husband to Wilfred James (Thomas Jane) and mother to Henry James (Dylan Schmid) decides that she is going to sell her deceased father’s home and land and relocate to Omaha both husband and son object and ask her to reconsider. When Arlette refuses to change her mind, Wilfred and Henry kill her and dump her body at the bottom of a well. However, after killing Arlette the lives of both Wilfred and Henry eventually spiral out of control…
I’ve seen a number of films based on Stephen King novels which are all of varied quality; Shawshank Redemption, Misery & The Green Mile are at the top of the pile with the likes of Pet Semetary, Christine and Cujo being at the lower end of the spectrum. 1922 is a film that slots somewhere in the middle (not fantastic, but not without merit either).
One issue I had with the film was its general tone and feel; there are lots of quiet conversations at the start and the thick Southern accents employed by the main cast can be difficult to decipher (particularly for someone like me who is English). Thomas Jane is the worst offender and I really struggled understanding what he was saying quite a lot of the time. Before we get to the actual murder, the film does have a sort of lifeless feel to it; the dark cinematography employed doesn’t help either as it can sometimes be difficult to see what is actually happening. The investigation aspect of the film surrounding Arlette’s death also felt undercooked and I think factoring this more into the film would have given the film that much needed jolt of excitement.
Thankfully the film does improve slightly in the second half when the rift between father and son has been established; without spoiling things you feel as though both parties become victim to the wrath of Karma. The Bonnie and Clyde kind of subplot involving Henry and his girlfriend was an interesting thread, but it felt underdeveloped to me and warranted a little more focus. The father’s journey is quite good and the pain and suffering that he endures is quite brutal at times. Both journeys act as a mainframe for the subtext and main point that the film is trying to make which should become clear when you watch the film.
As far as performances go then Thomas Jane does give the best performance; (despite the incomprehensibility of his accent at times). The supporting cast all put in good performances and overall from a technical stand point it is a fairly well-made film.
Overall then 1922 is an interesting film and I did appreciate the subtext within the narrative. However, on the other hand it’s a little lifeless and some areas are not as developed as well as they should have been. In other words, it works in fits and starts, but it’s not entirely satisfactory as a whole.
