Demolition — A quiet but powerful look at a man looking for an answer — 8*/10

  • Story: A great exploration of the mind. It is specific to the main character, thus giving us a new perspective on the old grief story. The drama is there, but it's quiet, and you'll even smile from time to time. It doesn't want to be an emotionally gut wrenching piece.
  • Setting: Rich in details, if too posh for the average viewer.
  • Style: Flashes of ideas flow to the screen from time to time, making us feel like we're thinking like he does. Very strong editing. We're part of his thought process and confusion. We're almost just as lost as he is.
  • Pacing: Very even paced. Not slow, but not fast either.
  • Ending: Somewhat predictable, but very nice.
  • Dialogs: Great.
  • Characters: Well developed.
  • Acting: Superb.
  • Known actors: Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts and Chris Cooper.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Entertainment value: Solid.
  • Who is it for? Those looking for something quiet but with a lot of emotional processing.
