Product Description

Red Dragon - Director's Edition


Les producteurs de Hollywood ont bien du mal à ne pas étirer le filon d’un film à succès. Ainsi, après Hannibal, qui donnait une suite à l’excellent Silence of the Lambs, c’est maintenant le “passé” que l’on dévoile dans Red Dragon, réalisé par Brett Ratner.

L’ancien agent du FBI Will Graham vit une retraite paisible, jusqu’au jour où les meurtres odieux d’un terrible schizophrène, affublé du doux sobriquet de “Red Dragon” en hommage à un tableau de William Blake, l’obligent à reprendre du service. Pour comprendre les rouages de l’esprit du psychopathe, il n’aura d’autre choix que de faire appel au non moins terrible Hannibal Lecter, qu’il avait lui-même arrêté.

Même si Red Dragon aligne des acteurs solides comme Ed Norton, Emily Watson, Harvey Keitel et, bien sûr, sir Anthony Hopkins, il souffre néanmoins d’incohérences majeures. D’abord, le traitement cinématographique trop moderne semble anachronique face à l’action supposée se situer dans les années 80. Ensuite, la relation entre Norton et Hopkins n’atteint jamais l’intensité séductrice et perverse qui liait Jodie Foster au cannibale. Il n’y a entre les deux hommes qu’un rapport de force qui manque d’une certaine subtilité pour être vraiment inquiétant. Le film peut toutefois compter sur un suspense bien mené, notamment grâce à l’arrivée tardive du tueur, interprété par un Ralph Fiennes fou et vulnérable à souhait, et sur une finale spectaculaire. Ce point final (espérons-le !) à la trilogie du Dr Lecter saura donc tout de même faire renaître les frissons attendus. --Helen Faradji

I've seen "Red Dragon" years ago but couldn't recollect it from my thoughts. Last night it reappear to me that it's a great film. This of course is a remake of "Manhunter (Full Screen Edition)," the first in the series of films centering on FBI profilers, serial killers, and the infamous Hannibal Lecter, who I suppose is the modern day equivalent of "Jack the Ripper." I haven't read the novel by Thomas Harris so I can't say which is the more authentic, but they're both very good films.

As in the original, "Red Dragon" centers around the character of Will Graham, a retired FBI profiler who is brought back to help find a serial killer (Ralph Fiennes), known as "The Tooth Fairy," preying on women with families. He kills once a month in sync with the lunar cycle, so Graham has time to investigate the two crime scenes and look for evidence that would indicate who the next target is. The beginning of the scene will capture your interest right away, because it sets up the relationship of Hopkins and Norton; it also gives Hopkins, without whom this film wouldn't exist, more screen-time.

Also as in the original, Hannibal Lecter is a supporting figure, not the main attraction, though Anthony Hopkins certainly chews up the scenery in a performance he's gotten quite good at. The relationship between Lecter and Graham never intrigued me as much and I'm not convinced that Norton was the best choice for the part of Graham. Somehow, Norton came across to me as too innocent and youthful for the kind of role he was playing. Towards the end he turns out to be a good performance. The movie doesn't play up his character as much as "Manhunter" did for William L. Petersen, but that's just a style difference in the directors.

What do I consider to be the absolute movie ever made? Well, it'd have to be a movie that is not interesting in any way, that features poor acting, and no style. But, most importantly, it would have to be a movie that is NOT so bad it's good, or at least entertaining, but something so truly terrible that is is just plain dull and boring. And, Red Dragon has all of these things. THIS is the movie that I would call the worst movie ever made. Of course, I haven't seen every movie ever made, so that's not a totally true claim, but I do say this is the worst movie I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot.
But, why is this film so terrible? Well, the story comes from one of the greatest books I've read, also called Red Dragon. also, it is following in the footsteps of three of my favorite movies, Michael Mann's 80s masterpiece Manhunter, Jonathan Demme's horrifying The Silence of the Lambs, and Ridley Scott's criminally underrated Hannibal. But, here's the worst thing about this movie. The taglines and ads for this movie make it seem like a story not put on film, the untold Hannibal Lecter story. Bull. The Red Dragon novel was adapted in 1986 as Manhunter, and that was a great film. So, it didn't have Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter, but so what? Brian Cox gave a great, memorable performance that could rival the Hannibal Lecter seen in 'Lambs' and 'Hannibal.' But it was a great movie and did a fabulous job of adapting the novel. So, with the three novels turned into three great movies, the trilogy is complete, right? Well, of course Universal couldn't let it go like that. There's major box office potential in Hannibal Lecter, so they went off and destoyed a great trilogy with this shoddy, pointless 're-imagining' of Manhunter. Re-imagining? Right.

I'm not at all opposed to a good remake of a classic film, but I believe it should have something new to say, something that makes it relevant to the modern age and time. Almost a shot-for-shot remake of the original and woefully underrated classic "Manhunter", "Red Dragon" fails on this score, and lacks the tortuous internal struggle of its detective and the trancelike, music-video pacing that made the original so creepy, poetic, and melodic.
"Red Dragon" comes across as a bloodless, boring, dispirited, dreary, and mechanical cloning of the first film, directed by Michael Mann, which told the same story back in 1986 with style, wit, horror, and cinematic aplomb. Trouble is, Anthony Hopkins hadn't signed on to the role as society psychiatrist-turned-serial-killer Hannibal Lecter at the time, and Hollywood didn't have two massively successful Hannibal Lecter movies under its belt to capitalize on. The solution: remake "Manhunter", this time casting Hopkins as the cannibalistic Lecter.
"Red Dragon" introduces Hannibal Lecter by way of Will Graham (Edward Norton), an FBI profiler brought back to work on the case of a new serial killer nicknamed "The Tooth Fairy" by a yellow journalist (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) at the National Tattler. Graham, nearly killed by Lecter, needs help in tracking and identifying the killer, and, like Clarisse Starling in 'Silence', visits the good doctor to get a 'scent for the hunt'.
There are some slight alterations, none of them for the better. Where "Manhunter" was about the internal voyage of the troubled Graham into the soul and mind of a serial killer, "Red Dragon" is Hannibal Lecter's movie.
