Lenny Cooke

निर्देशक Ben Safdie, Joshua Safdie
संयुक्त राज्य अमरीका, 2013


Professional sports is known as a true meritocracy, a field in which the cream really does rise to the top, as there’s simply too much money at stake to operate in any other fashion. In uncommon instances, however, inefficiencies can occur and gifted players may fall through the cracks.

Lenny Cooke निर्देशक Ben Safdie, Joshua Safdie
Even with a brief montage of Lenny’s talent being squandered as he floats around the independent circuit and further into obscurity, the transition to the present is jarring. Physically, Lenny is hard to recognize today, yet there is still a record of grace in his puffy frame while playing a pickup game at a playground. As distant observers, the Safdie Brothers deliver the film’s themes and characters’ feelings in tender, subtle moments like this.

The format and subject matter might seem like an odd match for the Safdies, sibling filmmakers best known for making micro-indies (The Pleasure Of Being Robbed, Daddy Longlegs) and shorts about New York eccentrics. However, Lenny Cooke is less of an outlier than it initially seems. It shares with their fiction work a ragged visual sensibility, a bittersweet worldview, and a low-key, moment-to-moment approach to drama.

In the final segments, shot more recently and raggedly by the Safdies, Mr. Cooke is shown living in Stony Creek, Va., gone to seed but not alone. The camera wallows in the sight of the man getting happily drunk at his own birthday party, and the sequence crystallizes a certain lack of depth in the film, despite its knack for inducing slow, sad shakes of the head.
