Mystic River

   21 June 2004, the wee hours

Mystic River is a thoroughly depressing movie. The acting in the film is superb. Tim Robbins and Sean Penn definitely deserve their Oscars. I highly recommend you watch this film.

You can read proper reviews of Mystic River at Rotten Tomatoes.



  1. Yes! Mystic River was my pick for Best Picture last year. (I knew Jackson was gonna win, but you never can tell at the oscars these days.)

    Penn and Robbins ARE wonderful. And even Bacon, whose performance is so muted that you barely notice him, is great. Just what his character needed.

    See this movie. Rent it. Buy it. Steal it (okay, don’t steal it). Just SEE it.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
