True Grit: The Coens Do It Lean and Mean

 
When it was announced that the Coen Brothers were doing a retake on True Grit, this reviewer was intrigued, since he held the earlier version in very high esteem-and still does. That being said, The Coen Brothers’ adaptation of Charles Portis’ classic western novel turns out to be a beautifully photographed (by Roger Deakins) if slow-moving tale of a determined girl named Mattie Ross who hires the resolutely drunk yet fearless U.S. marshal Rooster Cogburn to bring her father’s killer to swift-and deadly justice. They are joined in this quest through a wintry landscape by Texas ranger LaBoeuf, and the three quarrel and spar, all the while developing some mutual respect enroute to their date with destiny.

Crazy Heart

Scott Cooper’s Crazy Heart starring Jeff Bridges is one of those late-December releases that you’ll hopefully catch up with, especially to see Bridges in an Oscar-worthy performance surrounded by a terrific supporting cast. Not that you haven’t seen variations on this plot before: the washed-up, broken-down (fill in the blank with either athlete or performer) meets a lovely young lady (as in young enough to be his daughter), while facing a potentially life-threatening condition (usually drugs or alcohol infused) on the road to possible redemption (Wait a minute–am I reviewing The Wrestler?). However, it’s rarely been done so well.
