Prisoner of War

Paul Schrader Germany, 2008

Slappy McGee's rating of the film Adam Resurrected

Two of my favorite character actors - Goldblum and Dafoe - and still this movie did not work for me in any way. Just a big mess of tonal problems. It seems not to know what it wants to be. Up and down and all over the map. Plus...Goldblum's German accent is so bad that It took me right out of it every time he talked. I love the dude, but - oh my. It was bad. The whole dog/boy thing. So odd. So bizarre.
