Movie Review: I SAW THE LIGHT

RAMA is back at it again.

It's more about Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen

I SAW THE LIGHT is a performance-driven biopic. Tom Hiddleston transformed himself into the late great Hank Williams, and Elizabeth Olsen holds her ground, these two amazing talents burn the screen with such passion and ferocity. The film however is just textbook biopic, nothing that you haven’t already seen before. It’s well-intentioned but at the end of the day, Marc Abraham’s adaption is uninspired.



I SAW THE LIGHT essentially is the story of the legendary country western singer Hank Williams, one all-time greats in American music. Starring Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, I SAW THE LIGHT chronicles Hank’s rise to fame which has tragic effect on his health and personal life.

Please keep in mind that I didn’t grow up a fan of country music, I don’t hate it, I appreciate it but I don’t have huge country music encyclopedia to discern on whether or not Tom Hiddleston’s performance as Hank Williams is accurate. Those of you who are fans of country and specifically fans of Hank Williams can make that comparison and can better judge Hiddleston in terms of his singing skills, if he talks and walks like Hank, so on and so forth. But when I said earlier that Hiddleston transformed is that you really don’t see Hiddleston up there on the screen, at least I didn’t. And for an outsider, a British to embody; to capture the essence of one of this country’s legends, that’s something that warrants some degree of respect. Part of what makes I SAW THE LIGHT interesting is the tumultuous and sometimes hostile relationship between Hank (Tom Hiddleston) and Audrey Williams (Elizabeth Olsen). When you have two people, each of whom thinks that they should be the bigger star, when two egos collide, it makes for a compelling drama.

The story however is not well-structured, it constantly cuts way too quickly from one scene to the next, it comes across as impatient. And although it’s not a from the cradle to the grave type biopic, it focuses only on a few years of Hank’s life till his downfall, I SAW THE LIGHT is really nothing new, we’ve seen this before. Superstars drinking, doing drugs, cheating on their spouses, we’ve seen what fame does to characters on screen. We’ve seen “Walk The Line” and others like it, and so I SAW THE LIGHT is more about Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, that’s the big draw, the main attraction.

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy (Sarah Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose (Helena Bonham Carter). The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds—diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), who will be centerstage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice. All in plain sight.
