The Indian Runner: An intensely sad film about two brothers who cannot overcome their opposite perceptions of life. One brother see's and feels bad in everyone and everything, subsequently he is violent, antisocial and unable to appreciate or enjoy the good things which his brother desperately tries to point out to him. Frank understands the atrocities of life as a big picture, Joe does not, Joe is content to enjoy smaller pleasures -children, family, routine. Joe mistakenly believes he can straighten his little brother out and convince him that life is good. Frank is a cursed man. He is cut between his love for his brother and his repulsion at self-indulgent contentment. The result is a painful story of heartbreak, heartache, disappointment, despair, and the tragic side of love.

Sean Penn can be an annoying actor at times but this is a great debut movie as a director. Great performances, script and direction held this viewers attention right to the end.

Some poignant moments, no doubt. Good acting. Unfortunately I expected more, from the way people hyped on about this film, so it left me disappointed.

Meaty drama from Penn the Younger. It's a classic in the making and I vote 5/5 for a story well told and acted. Arquette and Golina are excellent wives to the two brothers and the baseline of male anger/rage is immutable- displayed with panache and with no-hope of redemption. Curls the toes with anguish for the missed chances for happiness.

This film would have been a lot better if Sean Penn pulled his head out of his ass and stopped being such a pretentious c**nt!! .............Viggo Mortensen and Patricia Arquette make worth watching.
