I read many bad reviews of this picture and wasn't expecting much, but The Angriest Man in Brooklyn surprised me. It's a well-acted story with substance - a bittersweet tale of life as it is and life as it can be. The very strong cast included cameos by a stuttering James Earl Jones and a piggish Louis C.K. Yes, it's sentimental, but it's not sloppy about it. It's humorous without big laughs. It's quiet and subtle and altogether outstanding. It reminds us that the only normal people are the ones we don't really know. It shows us how important it is to try to be <more>
happy. Not your typical Hollywood, thank goodness.Portraying a man whose bad day has gone on for years, Robin Williams' performance is eerily grave. He is complemented by a strong cast and a simple story that makes its point. Well worth the price of the ticket, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is a little gem.
Fitting tribute to one of the greats. (by draciron)
The plot asks what would you do if you knew you had less than 2 hours to live? Stop and answer that before you even watch the movie. Then ask it again after you have. Do that and you will get and like this movie. Too many are hung up on the specifics of William's character. There is dark comedy but this is more of an introspective movie. Robin Williams gets to display the whole gamut of his considerable acting skills over the course of the little time he has left and the antics that ensue. This was one of the better movies to come out in the last few years and should have been the last <more>
one of William's movies to be released. A tribute to a man who gave us so much over the years.
Not for the faint hearted Robin fans (by tarapetar)
I forced myself to watch this on a plane journey. At first I was excited it was featured until I watched the trailer and it had me in tears. "no", I thought, "i'm not ready for Robin in this type of film again yet". But in the end I watched it. There were moments where I smiled seeing his character happy in flashbacks, there were times I giggled because it does have a black-comedy touch to it, but most of all I cried. At the end, so much so that the nice lady next to me asked if I was OK and handed me tissues.Art imitating life they say...this was very much that. A man <more>
believing his life is about to end and tries to make up with his family, seemingly getting nowhere. Then he figures he'll just end it, why bother with another few minutes right...that broke my heart but that wasn't the end luckily. When the character does pass on the family do just like his did in real life I won't say what that is in case you don't know and I just bauled my eyes out.For me being a huge Robin fan, I enjoyed his performance but with what happened to him still being so prominent, it was painful and heartbreaking. A touching and good film, just wish it wasn't him who starred in it.
Against Exepctations, a fitting epitaph for a quality actor (by bh_tafe3)
If ever there was a film destined for significant reappraisal due to real life events, this one is it. It stars Robin Williams as a dying man, given 90 minutes to live, running around acting like a crazy nut, trying, with varying degrees of success, to make amends for some of life's big mistakes.In the wake of Williams' suicide, the film takes on a life and meaning that no one involved could have imagined. There is a pre attached melancholy to proceedings as we watch Williams, playing Henry Altmann, indulge in the type of profanity laden, over the top, angry insults that we will <more>
remember him for, all with the certain knowledge that Henry's actions, like William's performance, are amongst the last things this man will do.This is more than likely the last time we will see Williams playing Williams in a film, and it is a fitting last hurrah. A performance laced with the humanity we are used to from Wiliams, but tempered by an evident weariness and more than a hint of regret, and ending on a note of melancholy.The support cast are all capable, and the third person narrative works well. the script is not quite as clever as it thinks it is, but does combine minor plot strands reasonably coherently. The film could have been helped from more time being given to Kunis' back story. Instead, the audience is given enough information about her to follow what's happening, and that's it.At the end of the film, Henry's loved ones are left, as we are, in a state of mourning, when all we can do is pay tribute, share memories, and remember with laughter a life that ended far sooner and more abruptly than we had time to process. A life that touched us in a way not evident until it was over. Angriest Man in Brooklyn, unwittingly captures what all of us were feeling on August 11 2014. And for that reason, if no other, needs to be watched.
I thought it was pretty good (by jimstaudt-142-658515)
Robin Williams is great no matter whether he's acting the fool in a stand- up routine or whether he's playing a serious role. This one leans toward the serious side, although the movie has some really funny scenes. The one with James Earl Jones as the pawnbroker is borderline CLASSIC. Jones shows a comedic side I've never seen before -- actually had to rewind and replay that scene twice and laughed as hard every time. Not Williams' or Kunis' best roles, but definitely not a time-waster. Williams can make even the plight of a man nearing death seem funny, and Kunis is easy <more>
on the eyes no matter what role she plays. Melissa Leo is always good, and this movie is no exception. And the guy who plays her sometime-lover, Bob Dishy, is probably the most "unknown famous actor" in the business. I KNEW I had seen him before, so I googled his name, and found that he goes all the way back to Barney Miller. Never knew his name before, but he sure is a familiar guy.
I've read some reviews saying this movie is bad. Well, not sure about it. It might be not the best movie ever, but I found Robin William's acting brilliant - as always. I almost cried at some scenes, although I'm not an easy crier. As someone has already written here, you probably cannot see this movie without a taste of deep sadness, considering he's not with us anymore. And somehow I think that all those lines he spoke went right through his heart, although we'll never know this for sure. Still, great movie, watch it. The plot is not the main thing here - it's the <more>
acting and the idea. And I love you, Robin Williams.
