**The trouble that had never let her alone.**
A story about America, Hollywood cast, but produced and directed by outsiders. A powerful film. Kind of mix of ‘No Country for Old Man’ and ‘Les Miserables’. The narration divided into four parts. The first episode called Revelation. An introduction life around Liz, but full of suspense after every unexpected turn in the story. Then in the second episode called Exodus, a young girl, Joanna introduced and following the third knows as Genesis, goes ever further back into Joanna’s life, before returning to Liz’s in the fourth known as Retribution.
Maybe Dakota’s best performance being an adult actress. As well as the young actress Emilia Jones. They both had played the same character, but in a different timeline. Interestingly, in real life, they share the same birth day and month as mine. From one of the film poster, I thought it was Michael Sheen. Only realised while watching the film that it was Guy Pearce. From writing to the making, it was a very good film. But the story could make some people uneasy. Because everything that’s happened between the people and their relationship, not for soft guys. Yet it is a must see thriller, a must see western.
A congregation dressed in black, hymns being sung flatly, an evil preacher, an abortion scene in the first 15 minutes…
I should have known from the title that it wasn’t the good western that the cover image conveyed. I could not make it through 20 minutes before I had to shut it off.
It’s a movie which seems determined to slander the most beautiful message that exists – the message of Jesus Christ.
It is also another point of evidence that rated “R” and “MA” movies simply means “movies not worth poisoning your brain with”.
The actors were great. They played the roles well. But the subject material, the script, and the very idea of it is not worth consuming.
**4** The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God:
God is not in all his thoughts.
**5** His ways are always grievous; Thy judgments are far above out of his sight:
As for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
**6** He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved:
For I shall never be in adversity.
How Might Be the Heart of Someone that Writes Such a Story?
“Brimstone” is one film that arises emotion and stays in the viewer. The long and realistic story is one of the gloomiest, most depressing, cruel and unfair without redemption ever written. However, let me make clear that the film is excellent and the viewer shall not give up watching in the beginning. The screenplay divided in four parts – Revelation, Exodus, Genesis and Retribution – is perfect, disclosing the non-chronological saga of the protagonist Liz / Joanna. The cast is magnificent, with Guy Pearce representing the personification of evil and Dakota Fanning difficult to be recognized in the role of a “cursed” woman, supported by Carice van Houten and Kit Harington. The locations, costumes and cinematography are top notch and the haunting music score is also magnificent. The only question that remains is how might be the heart of someone that writes such a story? My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): “Amaldiçoada” (“Cursed”)
A brutal and harrowing Western
Brutal. Harrowing. Unforgiving. Just a few words that come to mind that succinctly describe the experience of watching BRIMSTONE. If you like/don’t mind the unsavory and uncompromising in your entertainment you’ll probably enjoy this. If you like languidly paced art films, then you’ll probably enjoy this. Otherwise, you might lose your patience. The narrative unfolds slowly and methodically, but the payoff is mostly worth the time taken to get there. Aiming to keep this spoiler-free, a brief synopsis is that a new minister (Guy Pearce) comes to a small Western town, and this puts a mute woman (Dakota Fanning) on edge, especially after a miscarriage puts her at odds with her fellow townsfolk. One further important detail is that the film is divided into four chapters, and the first three of these unfold in reverse chronological order. The movie centers around Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce’s characters, and the narrative structure allowed the director to withhold key information until the right time. Of course, like many other films with unique narrative devices, remove it and the film wouldn’t be nearly as effective. That being said, there’s plenty of stuff that goes on in nearly two and a half hours. A little indulgent? Sure, but all of the narrative elements are good enough to not make this much of a deal-breaker. I will say that the pacing, though slow, was steady and I never got bored. Thematically, Martin Koolhoven (the director) was able to use the period setting effectively to portray a world of religious coercion and the lengths men will go to justify oppressing women. Guy Pearce’s character was basically evil incarnate, and it was a scarily brilliant performance. Dakota Fanning also did well, certainly better than I’ve seen out of her before. Kit Harrington also had a small role as a man that Dakota Fanning’s character secretly nurses back to health, and who also teaches her a valuable lesson. From the more technical side, I greatly enjoyed the beautiful cinematography, and the haunting score by Tom Holkenborg (aka, JunkieXL). All things considered, this is one of the best films I’ve seen in a while, Western or not. For some reason, Europeans seem to do a better job nowadays tackling this genre, and BRIMSTONE is no exception. As long as you’re a somewhat patient viewer, and not easily offended, I can highly recommend this.
