[Mendelsohn] gets so deeply inside the skin of a born loser that it’s a shame that the script insists on having him shed it in the end; as in their earlier Half Nelson, which hedged on its protagonist’s drug addiction, directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck insist on mining the scenario for redemption. In the process, they undermine Mendelsohn’s harrowing portrait of a man who always makes his own bad luck—the filmmaking equivalent of a suffering a bad beat on the river card.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (of Half Nelson fame) attempt to reverse-engineer this secret formula [from California Split] for their latest feature, Mississippi Grind, a near remake of the Altman classic which doesn’t quite carry the transcendent cosmic weight of its forebear. The film earns major points for giving Ben Mendelsohn a proper, meaty character to tussle with, no longer psychotic second banana or madballs deus ex machina.

From its unshowy script on down, Mississippi Grind is content to rumble along as a character piece, keeping its storytelling loose and unpredictable, like a repeat flick of the dice. It’s a significant recovery for writer-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, valuable players on the American indie scene… Their work is best when it’s grounded in a palpable and slightly desperate reality, as it is here.
