Movie Review: #ThePromise

The Promise stuns us with its horrors, but bores us with its love triangle.

Review by Matt Cummings

With the world seemingly ready to fight another global campaign of death, The Promise comes along to remind us why war is so terrible. Its arrival this week shows us the personal cost of war, complete with all the horrors of genocide and the terrible atrocities which men are capable of producing.

The Armenian Mikael Boghosian (Oscar Isaac) is a kind and gentle man who yearns to learn medicine at a school in Constantinople so that he can help his small village improve their quality of life. He enters into an arranged marriage to pay his board fees, then hurriedly whisks off to the capital city. There, he comes under the care of his well-to-do uncle and begins immediately to flourish. He meets the stunning dancer Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), whose fanciful air is immediately appealing to the lonely Mikael. But WWI is fast approaching, and soon Mikael, Ana, and all of Turkey witness a horror too great to imagine: the Turks are committing genocide on the very same Armenians who have co-existed peacefully with them for hundreds of years. Cataloging the mayhem is the American journalist Chris Myers (Christian Bale), whose long working relationship finds himself enamored of Ana. Soon, the three enter a love triangle that WWI seems determined to squash, as they witness killings on scale no one has seen since the Mongols. Bound by his medical duty but conflicted over his love for Ana, Mikael journeys down a dark path that will see his life shattered, his friends placed in mortal danger, with one of them paying the ultimate price for their humanity.

The Promise is a bold and uncompromising view of genocide, lead by the talents of Director Terry George. He keeps the camera squarely focused on these moments, but at the beginning immerses us in Turkish markets, lavish dance halls, and exquisitely-decorated homes. As the focus shifts to the war, George is there as well, presenting us with craggy coastlines, bombed-out buildings, and open water. Some of that action by Cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe is cheap-looking - especially some of the handheld during action scenes - but he gets right up to George's actors to show their horror at Turkish actions. George also realizes that other stories will intersect here and does his best tie up every loose end before the credits roll. Some of that is difficult to watch, but most of it will infuriate you that people can make this kind of war on each other. Luckily, George isn't afraid to show us these moments, led by Isaac who brings a warmth and depth to Mikael. He is a genuinely likable if rather vanilla kind of lead, but it's this innocence which Isaac also brings that makes his emotional moments that much more felt. It's hard not to shed a tear when, during the third act, he comes across the dead of his village, rounded up and shot near a stream.

Unfortunately, not all of The Promise is done so well. The love triangle is haphazardly assembled, with the trio never really enjoying the chemistry of the other. Bale particularly feels out of place here, but he never phones in his performance; he's not the only big-name star here, as The Promise is filled with several cameos from Jean Reno and James Cromwell among others. Le Bon will be a bright star one day, but Ana's style and well-traveled heel seems way above Mikael's small-town sensibilities, and it's never fully established why the two fall for each other. But I do give George and Co-Writer Robin Swicord credit for not turning it into a knock-down between Mikael and Chris when they learn of each other's interests in Ana. It is rather convenient that our stars find one another so often as events begin to unfold and overtake them, and their crisscrossing timelines don't feel natural at all. And while the ending is a gut-wrench, one also finds themselves questioning whether these three have telepathy to be there when one pays the ultimate price.

The Promise succeeds only when the light is shed fully on the real story, that of the genocide which to this day Turkey refuses to acknowledge. Such a tragedy deserves an audience, even if what we uncover is an ugly truth. Adding impeccable production values to things doesn't hurt either, from the various location shootings to the exquisite costumes and sets. The score by Composer Gabriel Yared brings some of the grandeur John Barry before heading down the dark path that seems no love is unqualified to endure. And that's the real problem behind The Promise: although I do agree human stories become more powerful when cobbled together with historical fact, this one never gets those assemblies quite in the right order.

The Promise was a 2016 holdout, recently purchased by Open Road and given a much earlier date than the film deserved. Since then, it's been slayed by the critics for choosing relationships over story, which I think is not altogether unfair. True, our characters do happen to find one another through the genocide way too easily, but I never felt that their triangle interfered with what eventually became an experience that's hard to swallow. When the film chooses melodrama over telling a compelling story about genocide, it falters mightily; but one cannot doubt the inhumanity sometimes needs a human touch to bring things down. Coupled with The Lost City of Z, The Promise might be the only intelligent thing we'll see from now until October, but you'd never know it by the way both have been tossed into late April like The Island of Forgotten Toys.

The Promise is a sweeping, grand, and engaging film that will most likely draw you in to its message that war truly makes people do unthinkable things. Once things get going, it becomes a harrowing experience for sure, and you might even find your knuckles growing quite white from all the tension which George concocts. Critics have in my mind unfairly slayed The Promise, and so I'd encourage you to make up your own mind by checking it out. You surely will come away with a better appreciation of our world's first foray into wholesale slaughter, but its message of human suffering is also just as stirring.

The Promise is rated PG-13 for thematic material including war atrocities, violence and disturbing images, and for some sexuality and has a runtime of 132 minutes.

Movie Review: #TheLostCityofZ

The beauty of The Lost City of Z is also an engrossing and cautious tale of obsession.

Review by Matt Cummings

One of the joys I get as a reviewer is to watch films that I otherwise would not have the time to experience as an average moviegoer. Like you, such films would have resided on a wish list, with some eventually finding their way into a DVR to be picked up months afterward. Seeing as many films as I do is many times a gamble that fails to pay off, but with The Lost City of Z it's a stirring reminder of why I signed up for this job.

Col. Percival Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) is a strong-willed and dedicated British Army officer who's sought to change his family's fortunes after his father's scandalous suicide. Even though he makes short work of a beast during a hunt, Fawcett won't be invited to the dinner table because, as one adviser puts it, “He's been rather unfortunate in his choice of ancestors.” But his luck is about to change, having been recruited by England's Royal Geographical Society to chart the Amazonian wilderness. Percy's intelligent and spirited wife Nina (Sienna Miller) isn't happy as he risks terrible danger to become one of England's great explorers. Although he returns in one piece, Percy has been fundamentally altered by the experience: he's heard of a great lost city called Zeb and after finding pottery on one site, he's determined to find the city. But the world will soon enter The Great War, delaying Percy's dreams while Nina stays at home to raise their children, including the confused and angry Jack (Tom Holland). In the years to come, Fawcett's view of the world will radically change in his hunt for Zeb, eventually swallowing up the intrepid explorer with his son in tow, leaving Nina to hold out hope until her final days.

The Lost City of Z is a return to classic film making in every way, from the epic nature behind Writer/Director James Gray's sweeping cameras to the elegant production design and costumes by Sonia Grande. Gray's visuals draw you in, like Fawcett himself, determined to find this lost city in an effort to somehow bring balance to a world that has a limited view of tribesmen. The cost of that obsession is high, but Gray never turns his back on it, encouraging his stellar cast to push their performances beyond mere simplistic tropes. Every one here has a story to tell, from dutiful wife to angry son, obsessive explorer to silent witness. But The Lost City of Z is so much more: about halfway through it becomes a war film, soon after morphing into a shrewd political tale, only then to journey into a powerful father/son story and then a wife's tale of hopes dashed. It's great to see such a multi-layered film succeed in so many ways, as we're first led to believe this will be a strictly Amazon survival flick. Not so, as Fawcett's return home only increases the stakes for his eventual return to the jungle and the terrible cost it will eventually exact.

The Lost City of Z is bolstered by a terrific score by Composer Christopher Spelman, who mixes period sensibilities with ethereal electronic tones to craft a unique sonic landscape. Again, Gray encourages Spelman to extend his considerable talents around The Lost City of Z to make music that feels as big as the story Gray is trying to tell. We get top-flight performances from Hunnam, who's front and center throughout most of the film. He brings a warmth and trusting nature to Fawcett, injecting him with a sense of infectious adventurism that inspires us to drop everything to join him on the quest of a lifetime. Pattinson comes along most willingly and his understated performance is just what Hunnam needs to expose both of their strengths. I've loved most of what Pattinson has done since the Twilight series, because he's much like this film, stretching his wings to tackle a difficult subject with independent sensibilities. This movie could have revolved around Miller by herself, as Nina's story of sacrifice was nearly as engrossing as Percy's. For such a strong-willed woman to exist in the 1920's wasn't uncommon, but Miller imbues Nina with intelligence, grace, and uncompromising values who pays nearly as high a price as Percy.

If anyone doubted the potential behind Holland, this film will more than satisfy any concerns that Spider-man wasn't just a flash in the pan. Jack is a confused and angry young man who desires (and deserves) to know what's made his father stay away for so many years. He exists in Percy's shadow, unable to manage himself out from underneath it; and so instead of trying to do so, he becomes a part of it to understand it better. Jack matures right in front of us, right up to the powerful ending, and Holland proves that he will be dramatic force to be reckoned with even when he dons the red and blue tights. And yet with all of these accolades, I expect The Lost City of Z won't appeal to many moviegoers hungry for the onslaught of mayhem that will make up Summer 2017. But it's a beautiful and cautionary tale nevertheless that demands your attention and holds it with some of the best performances I've seen this year.

Hewn from the rock of grim obsession, The Lost City of Z sports an excellent cast, superior direction, and a sweeping score, all of which returns us to the classic era of film making. I'm surprised this story hasn't been told before, but even that won't be enough to draw in a mainstream audience. Regardless of where you stand on period drama pieces, I encourage you to give this one a chance as you won't get anything this intelligent until at least October. The WWI sequence alone is worth your time. The Lost City of Z feels like a movie from a different time, struggling (like its lead) to discover its place in the world. The result makes it highly recommended.

The Lost City of Z is rated PG-13 for violence, disturbing images, brief strong language and some nudity and has a runtime of 141 minutes.

About the Film:

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures. Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.

When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.

Starring with Hunnam (FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”) and Oscar nominee Law (“Cold Mountain,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley”) are Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) as Mage; Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond,” “In America”) as Bedivere; Aidan Gillen (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as Goose-Fat Bill; and Eric Bana (“Star Trek”) as Arthur’s father, King Uther Pendragon.
Guy Ritchie (“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” the “Sherlock Holmes” films) directed the film from a screenplay by Joby Harold (“Awake”) and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, story by David Dobkin (“The Judge”) and Joby Harold. The film is produced by Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman (“A Beautiful Mind,” “I Am Legend”), Joby Harold, Tory Tunnell (“Awake,” “Holy Rollers”), and “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and “Sherlock Holmes” producers Steve Clark-Hall, Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram. David Dobkin and Bruce Berman are executive producers.

Ritchie’s behind-the-scenes creative team included two-time Oscar-nominated director of photography John Mathieson (“Gladiator,” “The Phantom of the Opera”), Oscar-nominated production designer Gemma Jackson (“Finding Neverland”), editor James Herbert (“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” “Edge of Tomorrow”), costume designer Annie Symons (Masterpiece Theater’s “Great Expectations”), makeup and hair designer Christine Blundell (“Mr. Turner,” the “Sherlock Holmes” films), and Oscar-nominated VFX Supervisor Nick Davis (“The Dark Knight”). The music is by Daniel Pemberton (“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Weed Road/Safehouse Pictures Production, a Ritchie/Wigram Production, a Guy Ritchie film, “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Slated for release on May 12, 2017, the film will be distributed in North America by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.

The film has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of violence and action, some suggestive content and brief strong language.
