There’s more to this movie than apples. Twenty five years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck debuted as actors and screenwriters. As long as you’re not counting the possible writing expertise of William Goldstein. Robin Williams sheds the manic energy of previous roles and won an Oscar for portraying psychologist Sean Maguire. If you haven’t seen this movie in a while, give it another go because it hits differently each time.
Dr. Brandon Devito has commissioned us to watch the 1997 comedy/thriller mashup, “Grosse Pointe Blank”, starring John Cusack and Minnie Driver. It tells the tale of a hitman with a troubled conscience, or maybe just a feeling of ennui that has him returning to his home town for his tenth high school reunion and coincidentally reuniting with his old sweetheart. The action is surprisingly great, the sound track is fantastic, the fashion is decidedly 90’s, and the tone is quirky and all over the place, but it only hit one of us in just the right place.
