10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER on Jan. 8 2009
Format: DVD
Angelina Jolie stars as Christine Collins whose nine-year old son vanished from their Los Angeles home in 1928. She met with little cooperation from the police, and when they finally found the boy and brought him back home, she said, "That's not my son."

This movie was based on a true story and directed by Clint Eastwood in a gritty, no-frills style. There isn't a lot of action, but it definitely holds your interest until the very end. Jolie gives a strong performance as the mother who wouldn't stop looking for her son, even when she battled the corrupt police chief. Jolie is on-screen just about every minute and is a formidable screen presence. She and the rest of the cast, including John Malkovich, are all good in this very somber and intense piece.

The costumes, sets, and locations are perfectly done in 1920s style and the photography uses a lot of natural light adding to the old-fashioned feel. The movie about a mother's love and police corruption is fascinating, but it's also relentlessly grim and left me feeling quite depressed. A well-made movie, though.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By L. Power HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 26 2012
Format: Blu-ray
Throughout an illustrious directing career Clint Eastwood has crafted some of the most memorable movies of the last 15 years, movies such as Unforgiven, Mystic River, and Million Dollar Baby. He has won five Oscars, including two for Best Picture, two for Best Director, and the Irving Thalberg award.

In the process the actors he has worked with have been blessed with Academy Awards: Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman in Million Dollar Baby, Sean Penn and Tim Robbins in Mystic River,and Gene Hackman in Unforgiven.

With his other movie of 2008, Gran Torino, as Director and Actor he has delivered one of the best movies of the year, and one of his own most memorable performances, and now delivers another outstanding movie in Changeling.

Angelina Jolie won an Oscar for Girl Interrupted. Changeling marks her second nomination.

A huge amount of credit for this movie though must go to writer J Michael Straczynski, creator of Babylon 5, who got a call one day, and the caller said: "We're throwing out some old records, and there is something you gotta see." A true story that beggars belief.

Christine Collins' son was kidnapped, and the police returned to her 5 months later a boy who said his name was Walter Collins, but she said he was not her boy. Her protests fall on the deaf ears of Police Capt JJ Jones played by Jeffrey Donovan of Burn Notice. So begins one of the most notorious coverups of an already disreputable police department.

The attention to detail in the story is nothing short of incredible, particularly in the mental hospital scenes, which are very true to life.

"A true story" the cove of this dvd tells us but can any filmed story be really true. All kinds of things are left out elements interposed or better yet superimposed..like a SUPERMAN trying to tell a story? There are many stories, told, about the past, in a day when many can sit around the table, talk to their parents, this story about a search for a male child, by a lady, going back to 1920's Los Angeles does not want to appear anachronistic. It needs to be filmed written, acted so that the viewer is involved like he is turning on a TV show..or modern drama, the contemporaneous feel should draw most people in, back to the 1920's the director has his work cut out for him..the hat..Ms Jolie wears it throughout like a patient..which she will soon be in amental ward, who is suffering from some
CANCER undergoing radiation therapy, she is not, but thats what her world makes of her, the story moves on. The changeling as a title was filmed in star trek, here in Canada in 1979(was successful as a Canadian film I saw it) now once again. It is really a being formed from composite beings into a super being..or defective, or as the elements coalesce, into something else than it originally was? Who that is in htis drama..near the end..we get a sense of how director Eastwood films this piece..going back to the 1934 film It Happenned One Night..a romantic drama..filmed at a studio where an Oscar did it some good. rather than the studio having an interest in this type of film, or the types of films they would make over the years..a poor studio..had a hard time surviving over the years..owned no movie theatres to play films...but as a poor studio..its films often dealt with persons maintaining dignity and morals..a sesnse of inner virtue as a reward in itself..which is very much the tale of this story?
