De nouveau derrière la caméra, Clint Eastwood (Bird, Le Cavalier solitaire) signe avec Mystic River un excellent thriller à la sauce noire. Adapté du roman de Dennis Lehane par le scénariste Brian Helgeland, qui avait déjà exercé sa plume pour Los Angeles Interdite, le film réunit un trio exceptionnel : Kevin Bacon, Sean Penn et Tim Robbins, ce dernier ayant d’ailleurs reçu pour son rôle l’oscar 2004 du meilleur acteur.

Ancien truand reconverti dans la vie de famille tranquille, Jimmy Marcus (Penn) réside sans plus d’histoires dans les quartiers populaires de Boston, jusqu’à ce que sa fille, 19 ans, soit assassinée. Ce drame le fera ironiquement renouer avec deux de ses amis d’enfance : l’un, Sean (Bacon) chargé de l’enquête ; l’autre, Dave (Robbins), principal suspect.

Présenté sur trois DVD bourrés de bonus enrichissants (entrevues avec Eastwood et ses comédiens, visite guidée par Lehane de Boston, documentaire sur l’adaptation), Mystic River est un film âpre nous plongeant au cœur des âmes troubles de ses personnages. Psychologiquement bien développés et formidablement interprétés, ces derniers sont réellement l’épine dorsale du film, qui repose également sur une réalisation sobre et minutieuse. Trouvant dans l’œuvre de Lehane un écho aux thèmes qui lui sont chers depuis Unforgiven (la corruption, la vengeance, la responsabilité), Eastwood expose avec délicatesse les ravages de la pédophilie et déroule le ruban de cette tragédie bostonienne avec une grande maestria. – Helen Faradji

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie..Lousy Special Edition! June 8 2004
Format:DVD
This was one of my favorite films of 2003. Sean Penn and Tim Robbins both deserved the Oscars they took home. My advice to anyone reading this review is save 10-15 dollars and buy the version with just the film on it. The Special Edition contains nothing more than some of the most boring interviews, which go on for over an hour or two, and a dull commentary track. No insight on the making of the film or the casting. The Soundtrack is decent but not worth the extra bucks. Please take my advice and buy the "bare bones" version of this outstanding film and nothing more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood must have lost his marbles July 22 2004
Format:DVD
I cannot go into how many ways this films bothers me or I would be playing spoiler. Oh, how I wished I had read the spoilers first!
It was tightly directed, though with a style and feel that echoed a much better film, A Perfect World. But unlike A Perfect World, where the were good guys, bad buys and bad guys who had good in them, this film has no one that is likeable, no one you can respect. Worse, it has no remorse, and that is SO sad, no redemption.
Bacon, Penn, and Robinson put in strong performances in their going nowhere roles. I admired Eastwood's flair in A Perfect World, an emotional film that touched you on all levels. Only this movie...well, you want to wash after watching it. You cannot empathize with Penn's character, even though the murder of his 19-year-old daughter is the focal point of the film. Sorry, to point all the problems of this film one would have to go into spoilers left and right (I wish someone had told me the spoilers before!). There are devises that have no place in the film, that do nothing to further the storyline, just Eastwood's sense of quirky? Quirky worked in A Perfect World, quirky worked in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Quirky in this films was an insult to the intelligence of the viewer. I have loved Eastwood since his Rowdy Yates days, and marveled all the films he has starred in or directed ever since. But this one just is so pointless. This movie has a lack of honor, of true caring, of heart and it just hurts to see such talent put to such a useless waste of 2  hours.
My best advice - Rent this film before you buy or - be sure to read all the BAD reviews before making up your mind. Most people will not enjoy the senseless violence and to no end. Most people will not like the total remorse in nearly all the characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretentious Puddle? July 19 2004
Format:DVD
.
In great dramas, people aren't perfect, but their mistakes make sense. In melodramas, their mistakes don't; they occur only because the screenwriter wants them to.
Mystic River is a horrid melodrama, Hollywood's worst in years.
Pick any three-minute segment, jump in the shoes of any major character, and you'll find at least two instances where common sense would completely unravel the plot. There would be:
phone calls to doctors
routine checks on how the investigation is going
alerts to detectives
ridiculous assumptions thrown out the window
obvious suspects brought in for questioning
DNA and blood evidence rapidly analyzed and suspects eliminated
direct confrontations and/or backchannel neighborhood chats to double-check facts
and, oh, maybe a teeny bit of thinking before irreversible acts are committed.
None of this happens, of course, because the screenwriter creates a world without accepting its rules. The major characters are supposed to have lived in the same rough neighborhood and known each other all or most of their lives. But the lifelong aggressors uniformly jump to conclusions, as though they've never served time or seen other hoodlums get burned by assumptions. And the lifelong victims never seem to have their radar up around shady characters.
So we're asked to believe in a tough, jaded world where all statements are taken at face value, where no one seems to have ever seen a crime movie or played a single hand of poker, and where seasoned homicide cops don't seem to have heard of fingerprints, basic procedure, or internal affairs investigations. It's totally implausible.
In a decent drama, Dave never gets in the Savage brothers' car.

4.0 out of 5 stars Riveting, if overwrought drama July 19 2004
By Ivy Lin
Format:DVD
There are certain actors who after awhile don't seem to act anymore. They just live off a certain carefully crafed screen persona, and all their performances are a variation of this persona. Examples are Clark Gable's tough-talking Man's Man, Hugh Grant's bumbling English charmer, or Drew Barrymore's giggly airhead. With Mystic River, we now have a fourth such actor: Sean Penn's Unhinged Angry White Man.
Mystic River (directed by Clint Eastwood) is overall a very fine drama, about three Boston boys (Kevin Bacon, Tim Robbins, and Sean Penn) whose lives are intertwined tragically. Tim Robbins and Sean Penn both received Oscars for their roles, but IMO it's Robbins who was more deserving. He's alternately creepy and pitiful. I never really remember Tim Robbins performances -- he's usually vanilla bland, his flat accent and unremarkable looks making him a more liberal Kevin Costner. So his performance in Mystic River was a pleasant surprise to me.
Sean Penn, OTOH, from the very first shot in the movie is a glaring, sneering Dangerous Man. He works in a convenience store, but his hands shake as he lights a cigarette. He kisses his daughter in a way that's supposed to show his Loving Side, but it's done so intensely it seems either incestuous or creepy. During the course of the movie he howls and screams, a tattooed bomb of Primal Rage. Despite the scenery chewing, he's not very moving. He has a particularly irritating way of emphasizing "my DAUGHTER" over and over again in dialogue that sounds rather phony. People who are particularly close to anyone don't talk like that. Of course he won an Oscar, over an (IMO) more deserving Bill Murray.
As is often the case with these crime/psychological dramas, the supporting cast is the finest.
