AFI FEST 2011: Rampart

Jonathan Hardesty

Jonathan wants to be a screenwriter when he grows up, which means massive debt and large stockpiles of ramen noodles. His interest in movies is first and foremost in the crafting of the story, with most of that technical mumbo-jumbo taking a back seat. Camera work? Pshh. Directing? Whatever. It's all about those words that get adapted to the screen! You can find this guy on Flickchart as movieguyjon, and you can also find him on his blog. Oh, yeah... there's a twitter account as well.

    This is pretty much how I felt about Oren Moverman’s film The Messenger, which I saw at AFI a couple of years ago. It was fine, and had some decent performances from Harrelson and Ben Foster, but the story was SO typical – nothing I hadn’t seen a hundred times before. I’m content with my decision to skip this one.

      There’s a lot of story elements in this film that are covered much better in the short-lived TV show Southland, which I actually liked. But for the most part this genre seems to be the same throughout. I keep trying to like it, though. :)
