Wanna be Hitchcock
Really weird. The music and filmography really resembles a Hitckocian style thriller, but the acting and script are all so bad. This movie clearly tried to be something but it fails miserably and the cast do not do justice, albeit good actors overall.
Barebones hostage drama with surprise ending
As “Windfall” (2022 release; 92 min.) opens, a man is walking around a southern property. It quickly becomes apparent that the man is in fact robbing the property. Just as he is about to finish up, a couple arrives at the property. It’s not long before the man is found out and he takes the couple hostage… At this point we are 10 min into the film.
Couple of comments: this is the latest movie from director Charlie McDowell (“The Discovery”). Here he brings a barebones hostage drama that seems appropriate for the times in which it was made: smack in the middle of the pandemic. Hence only 4 actors (the three mentioned earlier, plus the gardener in a limited appeareance), and one single location. At times this very much feels like a theater play. Once the story line is set, nothing much really happens (until the very end, that is) and instead we get to know the personalities. Is the robber really a bad guy? And what of the ultra-rich CEO? Is the hostage drama causing a rift in the marriage? All three lead performances are good, in particular Jesse Plemons as the CEO. Lily Collins (a/k/a Mrs. Charlie McDowell in real life) plays the role of the wife. Jason Segel )playing the robber) is also credited as the film’s co-writer. The film’s overall minimalist approach reminded me more than once of Steven Soderbergh’s work. Bottom line: this movie is nothing earth-shattering but still worth checking out.
“Windfall” premiered on Netflix this weekend. If you are in the mood for a barebones hostage drama with a theater-like feeling to it and starring some solid acting performances, I’d readily suggest you check this out, and draw your own conclusion.
