I spent over a decade watching and reviewing films for my job at MTVEurope. Even before and since I voraciously consume cinema of truly allkinds as a passion, I don't care about genre or even subject, only thata work is honest, inspired, effective. As with any art, of course. <br><br>I saw The Indian Runner at its Cannes film festival debut in 1991 andleft the Grand Palais screening speechless. Where to start? We oftenhear about the usual checklist of script, acting, cinematography,editing, music, and so on, and of course all are stellar here. But it'sthe magic of the mix of all these and so many more subtleties about theexperience of this film that makes it not just a terrific, achinglybeautiful thing, moving, illuminating, but, I believe, having revisitedit so many times over the last thirteen years (like so very few othersamong the hundreds seen once), one that is important and bound for abelated re- positioning as a cinematic gem in the history books of thefuture.<br><br>Cassavetes is clearly a major force behind this in the best possibleway; he'd have stood up and applauded the way Penn took his spirit, hisopenness and gave it a more cinematic scope, color, pace, size, withoutcompromising his own direct gaze on the human condition. Before thisfilm Cassavetes' huge contribution had not been properly picked up, thebaton in some respects still dangling where the late auteur had left ityears back. In Indian Runner Penn points the way forward for this boldtone of cinematic voice (in a way to my mind even more clear than inhis subsequent The Crossing Guard and The Pledge). The moment at thestart of the film when Joe's dead victim's father begins singing a worksong at the police station still stands out as the revelation that thismovie had its own palette. I could go on and on but I'd probablybore... even ME (like Frank, no?).<br><br>What struck me in Cannes and forever since is how this massiveachievement was so overlooked by other critics and then the public. Ifelt I was simply out of step but never wavered in my commitment tothe film as a private cause which I'm pleased to say everyone I'vetalked into seeing it has agreed during exciting post-mortems. Also, aswith great works in general, I notice it only gets better with repeatedvisits over the years. And seeing the comments about it on this sitehas cheered me up no end. I'm not alone!<br><br>It's one thing for a film to endure; another entirely for it to emergefrom obscurity years after it was made and left aside. That verytrajectory, likely, it seems now, for The Indian Runner, is going tobecome one of its many very special qualities. Conversations about itssimple and complex strengths are gaining a new dimension with this lookinto what it was that made it so inaccessible to most of its viewersfor its first decade and what it is and will be that finally unmasksthe gem that until now was so oddly neglected. Suddenly it's on DVD andpeople are discussing it. Could it be good taste or whatever you callthis kind of appreciation is on the rise? Wow. Reasons to be cheerfulindeed. <br><br>And for those of us who first came across Viggo Mortenson here, imaginehow itchy it made us sitting through his fine but passionless Lord ofthe Rings!<br><br>Here's to poetry, vision, and honesty about pain and life withoutjudgment. Lord knows it's rare these days.

Few actors who move over to directing have done so with as much success(artistically) as Sean Penn. John Cassavetes, a major source of inspirationto Penn, did so in the past, and Penn is one of the very few to follow inhis footsteps who could possibly end up rivalling him as a maker of complexand haunting character based dramas. 'The Indian Runner' was Penn'sdirectorial debut, and it is an extremely impressive achievement. Inspiredby Springsteen's song 'Highway Patrolman' (from his underrated 'Nebraska'album from the early 1980s), it is a slow, almost hypnotic look at twobrothers with totally different world views and their attempts to come toterms with each other. The siblings are played by David Morse ('TwelveMonkeys') and Viggo Mortensen ('The Prophecy'), and both performances aresuperb, and career high points. Mortensen is now a major movie star due tohis involvement in the 'Lord Of The Rings' trilogy, but for his best actingwork look no further than here. The rest of the movie features a first ratesupporting cast which includes Valeria Golina ('Rain Man') and PatriciaArquette ('True Romance') as the brother's respective love interests, andveterans Dennis Hopper ('Blue Velvet') and Charles Bronson ('Death Wish'),testament to the respect Penn has in the acting community, I'd say. Bronson,who plays the father, puts in an uncharacteristically subdued performance,one of his best ever. Also keep an eye out for Benicio Del Toro ('The UsualSuspects') in a small cameo, and Penn's mother Eileen Ryan ('At CloseRange'). This movie may not be to everyone's taste, but I was knocked out byit. Easily one of the most overlooked dramas of the 1990s. Highlyrecommended.

What word better describes this picture than `strong'? Strong characters,strong actors, strong directorial choices. Brilliant writing and aperformance that told anyone who saw it that it was only a matter of timebefore Viggo Mortensen became a somewhat unwieldy household name. Everybodyshines, everybody is used more intelligently than they were very often. Valeria Golino didn't have a part this good until `Frida,' Charles Bronsonis given room to stretch, Patricia Arquette gives her best performance everby far (doesn't she look a bit like Robin Wright in this film?), and DavidMorse is always excellent, I see that he directs TV from his bio, hopefullyhe'll try a feature soon. Just like `Jesus' Son' another film set aroundthe 60's/70's split, if this film had been made in the time in which it isset it would have been a classic. As it is it hasn't even been released onDVD yet, which is embarrassing. I wasn't the biggest fan of `The Pledge'and actually didn't know that A) Sean Penn had a film like this in him,though I suspected, or that B) he made that film more than 10 yearsago.<br><br>One false step was using someone giving birth for that scene. We know itisn't Patricia Arquette, it is unnerving to watch someone give birth even ifyou know them but especially when you have some random person splayed out infront of the camera. Immediately I was taken out of it, wondering who wouldvolunteer to have a baby for a film. Oh, and you never ever really believeit's 1963.<br><br>Certain shots are eerily reminiscent of the haunted and empty America we seein Philip Ridley's `The Reflecting Skin,' a Viggo Mortensen film from theyear before.<br><br>Greatest thing about the film is that it doesn't try too hard. Withsymbolism, with drama, it lets the people do their work and what happens isconsistently interesting. It has a great soundtrack and more importantlymusic is used well within the film. The film is even more poignantconsidering that it come from the famously volatile, occasionallytraditional occasionally misanthropic but always mercurial Penn. <br><br>
