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.

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 great movie with classic theme Nov. 28 2012
Format:DVD
Here we have in Mystic River Eastwood directing and constructing like alfred hitchcock or at least trying to and understanding his psychology by moving scenes, the inner life of characters, and what moves people. He is of course different and has his own way of approaching this film, which presents quite complex action, but action there hardly is as the movie concentrates on what moves people and modern society as it is evolving. There was a movie years ago based on a famous play The Petrified Forest and the producers invited people from around the world to explain what is actually going on, and the movie was updated as The Desperate Hours years later, in which the terror of modern life is unleashed at all kinds of innocents in a household, but that was a quite complex story examining things from many different angles. Here we have Mystic River, mystic and river go together, ancient worlds had baptism type ceremonies in rivers, after which you were cleansed body in soul, much like the character Mr Markam..mark ham,,,and he has all the marks on him as the person who actually loves his family, and we're told has the world embittered against him..for some reason. THere is also terror..against a child..the father..and also by these terror
massochist minds anywhere and everywhere where they can get away with it..and socialize only with investigating
police investigators...the victim has no such interview, no such niceties, is left in the dark, and we see no relationship at all. The perpetrator, or alleged walks his child to school for safety, and the whole mood is somber
and we are told that the child's body was dumped in the river...what the river today has actually become. At the film's end we have an emotional scene although they lay it on too heavy and say love..you love..

5.0 out of 5 stars I've Never Felt Worse Coming Out of a Movie July 15 2004
By Brandin
Format:DVD
This is not happy ending kids, this is by far the most agonizing, frustrated, confused, and worst I've felt after viewing a film. That's why it's so brilliant. It makes no apologies, and doesn't cover up or sugar coat the reality of life. The performances are first-rate, top-notch hitters. Every actor involved gave the performace of their careers. Penn and Robbins earned their Oscars with the dept and truth they brought to their characters. Eastwood is a master at filmaking, and this is definitely a masterpiece. If you want a hard hitting, no prisoners drama, then this is absoultly your movie. I highly recommend this film and DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strong Start, Weak Finish July 5 2014
Format:Blu-ray
This was definitely a great movie. the cast was amazing and Sean Penn (above all else) delivered a phenomenal performance.

The story was captivating but i think it ended on a very poor note... i found the reasoning behind his daughters murder was lackluster and their was just this void that was never filled.

The story could have definitively closed on a better note and such ending left me feeling like the movie was just "meh".
