The Missouri Breaks. [Apr. 21st, 2005|09:43 am]
Tony Grist
I lay awake much of the night trying to figure why The Missouri Breaks is such a dull movie. I think I've finally worked it out. But you probably haven't seen it and I'm not recommending that you do. Let me just note that it's not Marlon Brando's fault. His famously eccentric performance is no more self-indulgent than Lee Marvin's Oscar winning turn in Cat Ballou. No, I blame the director (Arthur Penn). He took a rompish script and tried to turn it into an Elegy for the Old West. Brando is, in fact, the only one of the actors who's in step.

Jack Nicholson is a sleaze. I don't like him. Does anybody?

Saw him in one of his earliest...

A film called "Five Easy Pieces" a long, long time ago... he was an adorable sleaze in it and I remember hoping for much more from him. Hasn't happened yet, I fear.

Re: Saw him in one of his earliest...

I've never seen that one. It's supposed to be pretty good.
