Vern reviews Thomas Jane's DARK COUNTRY (the first review?)

I am Vern... DARK COUNTRY, by rookie director Thomas Jane, is a stylized noir made on a low budget with a minimal cast. It was written by a guy who wrote Disney's TARZAN and HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. It was shot in 3-D but is going straight to flat DVD. But somehow this weird combination of elements makes up a pretty good little movie, and possibly the best ever directed by one of the Punishers.
Jane plays a dude who just woke up in Vegas with a gorgeous woman he drunkenly married (Lauren German). He doesn't remember how it happened but he's convinced he loves her so they set out for a romantic night drive across the desert toward their new life together, both of them kind of amused and terrified by their reckless spontaneity. Their lust and horror sort of headbutt each other when an in-car sex act causes them to run over a guy in the middle of the road. They try to bring him somewhere that they can get help but they keep getting lost and he flips out on them and before long they're trying to hide a body. Jane does a great job of putting you in a paranoid mind state. They start to worry that they can't trust each other. Who could this guy be? Is he after them? Was he following them? The events get more and more surreal - are they losing it? Are they dead? Are they gonna be dealing with the Hellcops from that movie HIGHWAY TO HELL? The opening scene is pretty disorienting with its hardboiled voiceover and show-offy closeups, enough that I questioned Jane's directorial chops at first. But I quickly learned that I liked his style: dynamic shots, alot of momentum to the editing, vivid imagery with their faces lit by the light on his dashboard, contrasted against dark desert sky. It's obviously a low budget movie, he couldn't shoot the whole thing driving through a real desert at real night so he went for some stylization that fits with the feverish noir tone of the story - exaggerated stars, lightning, colors, sometimes the driving looks like a process shot from an old Hitchcock movie or something. Great atmosphere. And it's a shame this isn't playing somewhere in 3-D because there are a bunch of cool comin' at ya type shots. Fortunately they work organically within the story, so most people will just mistake them for cool shots. It's not like that asteroid in CAPTAIN EO that looks so unimpressive on the 2-D bootlegs. Jane also knows how to use music, all of it vintage and timeless, nothing dated to now. One of the crucial scenes is all set to classical music because it's all they can get on the radio besides country. Even the end credits use music and sound effectively, keeping the dreamy feel of the movie lingering in your mind afterwards. So I like the movie's look, sound and feel, but DARK COUNTRY's biggest strength is much simpler: it's the acting. For most of the movie Jane and German are the only two people on screen - it could almost be a play. If either one had been weak it would've blown the whole thing, but both of them are great going through puppy love, panic, fear, anger. I was rooting for those crazy kids to work it out. Since you don't know anything about the wife's background but you know what tends to happen in this type of story you start wondering if she's setting him up somehow. But as much as she could use her sexuality as a weapon (the passenger seat masturbation scene will be enjoyed by many) she doesn't come across like some dominating femme fatale, or a too-innocent girl-next-door either. She just seems like a nice, funny girl with a few problems. A person. (Well, an incredibly hot person.) My one complaint is that I figured out what was gonna happen. I was prepared to roll with the punches and I don't think "figuring it out" kills a good movie, but since it immediately ends after the reveal it felt a little anti-climactic. Kind of a TWILIGHT ZONE episode that you got a step ahead of. Oh well, it happens. Still, an impressive feature directing debut by the guy from THE MIST, and yet another good leading role for his resume. I hope he keeps at it. --Vern

    a poor man's Thomas Jane. Vern, is that a correct statement or should we insist that it out to be the other way around? I'm planning on going to bed sometime tonight, so anything you could do to put my mind at ease before then would be appreciated.

    Eckhart vs Jane?

    by Crow3711

    I don't really see the comparison, but I think I disagree with the statement. Tom Jane is great, and I enjoy him fine in everything I've seen (Hung, The Myst, and his one ep of arrested development where he is awesome), but none of it is as good as the movies I've seen with Eckhart in them (Dark Knight, Thank You For Smoking, Conversations With Other Women, Erin Brockovich) If I had to choose, I'd go with Aaron Eckhart. And why do you need Vern to tell you what to think anyway Yackbacker? Make up your own mind.

    by Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World

    He's like some kind of badass action movie version of early Gary Oldman or somebody. A real artist in his field, but they keep sticking him in shitty movies. Mutant Chronicles, Killshot, what the hell. I hope that Hung thing is working out for him but clearly awesome action/noir pulp type stuff is obviously where his heart is. Glad to hear this is good though. Guess that makes him a badass auteur candidate huh?

    I never thought much of Thomas Jane until Hung

    by lumberjaw

    and he is indeed awesome in that... as a side note, Aaron Eckhart gave a truly great performance in In the Company of Men back in '97. He can play a jerk just as well as he does the "good" guy... I'd actually like to see Jane play some kind of villainous part in the future.

  • Aug. 25, 2009, 9:42 p.m. CST

    I'm a big Thomas Jane fan but...

    by chaplinatemyshoe

    ...he's more of a B movie star than a great actor. I think you have to have a strong director who has a specific idea for Jane to make it work. Whereas, I think Eckhart's got enough acting ability to let him swing for the fences a bit more on his own. Basically, go watch Thursday. It sums it up perfectly. Jane is the guy you naturally like more, but who consistently makes awful choices in a lot of his acting roles, and Eckhart's a more talented actor who you just naturally find kind of annoying.

  • Aug. 25, 2009, 9:49 p.m. CST

    When I say "make it work", I mean...

    by chaplinatemyshoe

    ...make a movie that's meant to be good. Part of why I like Jane is he's been in so many absolutely horrible movies that are nevertheless entertaining for their so-bad-it's-good nature (Dreamcatcher being the penultimate example for me). I think if you're going for camp, you cast Thomas Jane and it will work because the dude will interpret nearly any situation with a straight face and absolutely no self awareness.

    Sounds pretty cool

    by MandrakeRoot

    I've always enjoyed Thomas Jane, even going way back to Deep Blue Sea. Sure a lot of his better flicks have been B movies, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I only caught the first episode of Hung, but I really enjoyed it and look forward to more. As far as the Eckhart comparison, I don't really see it. They act nothing alike, are in very different movies, and other than a slight physical resemblance they don't really have anything in common. Except that their both pretty good actors. As far as Eckhart goes, Thank You For Smoking has always been a favorite of mine, obv the Dark Knight he's great in, and In The Company of Men. And did anyone see Towelhead? Not a great movie but he gave very creepy, but brave performance.

    I thought he was supposed to be the new Christopher Lambert

    by Vern

    and that resemblance I can see. I agree that he's so far more of a B actor, but I like those kind of movies anyway.<p> If any of you like Jane and haven't seen STANDER I recommend immediately dropping everything and getting it. It's a fun and badass movie but with more political and emotional resonance than his other stuff. He is absolutely great in it even doing a South African accent. I think he's generally good but that movie shows that he's capable of more than what he usually gets to do.<p> As a director his style reminded me a little of early Russell Mulcahy, which is weird because he has another one coming out that looks good and it's directed by Mulcahy. AND Mulcahy directed Lambert in THE HIGHLANDER. It's all coming together now. I'm not sure where Eckhart fits in though.

    His punisher is a tolerable throw back to the bargain bin trash we all knew and loved in the eighties action movie heyday. Movies that starred people like Michael Dudikoff. He has always kind of reminded me of him. Strange. Anyways, The dude has some real deal acting talent that gets squandered in the hands of shitty directors. Give him a Darabont,(who should have seriously gotten the "Wolfman" gig. No one loves that era of cinema more than he)PT Anderson or well i guess that it.

    Jane > Eckhart

    by criticalbliss

    Jane feels more honest in his roles. Eckhart, while a good actor, often leaves the "strings" showing (even in TDK). When I see Jane, I feel like I'm watching the character in the film, whereas, when I see Eckhart, I feel like I'm watching an "actor"...

  • Aug. 26, 2009, 12:34 a.m. CST


    by Juror Number 8

    is badass. jane is so good in it you forget it's thomas jane. he also made the mutant chronicles a semi-watchable movie. and hung is growing on me, i just find the storylines with his ex-wife and kids incredibly boring. i'll stick with it though, and hope they focus more tonya and ray. the most recent couple of episodes have been a step in the right direction. just added dark country to the netflix queue, too bad this one's going straight to dvd.

    Eckhart vs Jane - watch THURSDAY

    by spud mcspud

    Where our two favourite American leading men go head to head against each other LITERALLY. A very, very under-rated movie, and the one movie that inducted me into the Cult of Jane.<P> Oh, and he needs to be given another shot at THE PUNISHER. Preferably with Tiny Lister Jr, in a straight comic-to-movie adap of THE PUNISHER: BARRACUDA. Screenplay by Garth Ennis, adapted from his own GN.<P> But seriously, THURSDAY is awesome. Give it a spin. Best thing Mickey Rourke ever did in his wilderness years between 1992 and THE WRESTLER.

    Oh, and Eckhart SUCKED in THE DARK KNIGHT

    by spud mcspud

    The most wasted oppotunity to use a decent actor in a major role since... well, since the last time it happened.<P> That part is easily the worst thing that Eckhart has ever done. I'd rather watch ERIN BROCKOVICH again than watch him wasted in that under-written Harvey Dent role again. The only cool thing he did in that movie was the part where he took the gun apart and punched the guy in the courtroom. Harvey Dent was never more badass than in that moment.<P> But that ending? The very essence of the word MEH. Completely insensible.

    Are we honestly debating Eckhart vs. Jane?

    by IndustryKiller!

    Seriously. How about they are both objectively good actors who have a similar look but have different career because, oh I dunno, they are different people. Eckhart does more prestige projects but thats just luck and circumstance, it could just as easily be the other way around. I love them both and enjoy it when I see either one show up in anything. Jane might do mroe B-movies but some of the stuff he has coming out, this project included and Give 'Em Hell Malone, looks like a real crack as some interesting genre work. I wish more actors did that sort of thing. Alot of "prestige" actors like the objectively-worse-than-Tom Jane Will Smith does HORRIBLE b-movie crap like Hancock and somehow doesn't get called on it. Smith is the ultimate b-movie hack.

    Jane’s Punisher was far better than the sequel

    by I_Snake_Plissken

    As much as I hate to admit it, primarily because of Jane himself the first Punisher film was better (not counting the Dolph Lundgren version). Granted, I don’t associate Frank Castle as taking down bad guys with parking tickets, but at least the film was watchable. The 2nd was a pile of crap, resembling a cheap DTV film with truly mindless action scenes, Schumacher-esque colors, and desperate attempts to be cool (the big opening with the upside-down chandelier spin might be cool if you’re twelve, but any older than that and it’s really, really stupid).

Seriously, it is literally among the worst movies ever made, and I don't mean that in a good way, or a fun way, or 'it's worth a few chuckles' kind of way... but in a 'it was completely inept, lost, and bad bad BAAAAAD' kind of way.

    Hung is merely OK

    Good concept but a bit too slow on execurion....hmm needs more naked women/clients of various types(for realism sake..*Ahem*).But seriously with a show that's 30 minutes, they need to cram as much interesting scenarios allowed.Plus Jane's/Ray's "Pimp" is a bit homely..(she looks like Mick Jones formerly of the Clash.)..anyway, it's something to tide me over for the time being.

    The Myst sucked monkey balls though. I put in the same kinda league as Emilio Estevez. Happy to see him cause he sticks to what he knows.

    Thomas Jane is terribly underrated

    This guy should be bigger. It's good to know that beside being a really good actor, he's also a pretty talented director. The man has no shortage of talent, so it seems.
