I donâ€™t really know what to say about Nobel Son. Weirdly enough I think I liked it. I think Randy Miller was trying to go for kind of arty and shocking and yet missed that mark by quite a bit and landed on I donâ€™t know. It was a very fast paced film and the score is completely techno, which I though went very well with the piece. The story line is interesting and the characters although really mean were fun and easy to watch. Over all I thought the movie was clever and interesting.
The cast it what really shines in this movie. Anything with Alan Rickman playing a vitriol filled curmudgeon is something that I know I am going to like because he always plays that role so well. But itâ€™s not just him that shines in the movie. There is Danny Devito, Bill Pullman, Shawn Hatosy, Eliza Dushku, Ted Danson and Brian Greenberg. All do a good job and I though Eliza Dushku was pretty impressive. Shawn Hatosy is mean but funny and if you donâ€™t love Danny Devito then there is obviously something wrong with you that canâ€™t be fixed by reading this review.
The plot is a little convoluted but if you pay attention you can follow it. Itâ€™s not going to win any awards but if youâ€™re looking for a few hours to get away from reality than this is the ticket. There is a decent amount of violence son itâ€™s not exactly a family friendly film. In general I liked it.
