Movie Reviews

Reviewed by Tim Johnson

I love Nicolson and I thought his work in this film was as good as anyI have seen him do in any of his previous films. My accolades mustbegin with the writers for creating such a beautiful novel and script-aperfect canvas for the many fine actors in this film upon which theywove their considerable magic. There were no killings, no car chases,no violence of any kind-I'm surprised that Hollywood distributed it.<br><br>Such a slice of life-American life with it's many warts-warts that theAmericans probably don't even recognize: Winnebagos like movingpalaces, freeway monuments to genocide, business that consumes it'sworkers only to dump them unceremoniously, too much of everything thatamounts to emptiness, etc., etc. The novel by Begley, upon which thefilm was based, illustrated this consumer emptiness brilliantly by theinclusion of the bookends to the film, the sponsorship of the Tanzanianchild by Schmidt. The child's material emptiness was contrasted withSchmidt's emotional emptiness in a way America does not recognize muchless watch on the screen.<br><br>The last part of the movie dealing with the marriage of Schmidt'sdaughter to a man who came from a diametrically opposite &quot;new age&quot;family was an unstated acknowledgment by his daughter that she wantednothing of her father's values-she wanted a complete break and she wasgoing to marry the break.<br><br>A fascinating, complex movie and I'm sorry I didn't see it muchearlier.

I was dubious when my 65 year old father picked this DVD up from theshelf at Blockbuster. &quot;Great choice dad!&quot;, secretly wondering why I lethim pick 2 films out of the 3 in the special offer they had going. Yousee, my father has a penchant for Woody Allen and anybody who has arather dry sense of humour, this includes Nicholson.<br><br>We sat down tonight, and the first thing that hit me was the way thatthe film was shot. It is shot using rather blue and green hues, so thefilm is rather subdued. Secondly, the music stands out. Instead ofusing a typical 'boohoo' orchestra, the film uses beautiful wanderingpiano and marimba sounds. <br><br>The characters, I could easily relate to. Helen, the faithful wife whois excited about getting to spend a new chapter of her life with herhusband. The husband, who obeys his wife but secretly resents it. Asudden change which causes a rethink in everything he has done up untilthat point.<br><br>At first, this appeared to be a comedy, but it was soon revealed to bea beautifully poignant film. Throughout, it questions mortality, whatyou can achieve in life, and how to cope with loss, or change. I don'tthink I have ever cried as much in 2 hours as I did during this film,and yet at the same time laughed so hard that my sides were splitting.<br><br>I would thoroughly recommend anybody to watch this film. It will staywith you for a long time.

This film must be watched very carefully. If you're not paying enoughattention to it, you would miss it (some did). It's in the frames, theatmosphere, the tiny details, the situations, the acting, everything.But it's not that obvious, unless you enter that world. Simple story?Sure. Life is simple. So is great art. All in all, &quot;About Schmidt&quot; is areally great film. Bitter humor, all-pervading lie, the infinitesadness of loneliness and failure, sincere egoism, everyday dullness,desperate and quiet hope - this is life, and in a non-blatant, normelodramatic manner. But you're going to weep (and smile) at the ending(I did!). And one more question: is The Mulholland Man the greatestactor ever or not?
