MISTER LONELY, 2007
Movie Review
Directed by Harmony Korine
Starring Diego Luna, Samantha Morton, Denis LavantDiego Luna, Samantha Morton, Denis Lavant
Review by Alex Haight



SYNOPSIS:

In Paris, a young American who works as a Michael Jackson lookalike meets Marilyn Monroe, who invites him to her commune in Scotland, where she lives with Charlie Chaplin and her daughter, Shirley Temple.

REVIEW:

“The Pope stinks, the Pope stinks, the Pope stinks!”
-Buckwheat (played by Michael Joel-Stuart)

With Mister Lonely (Harmony Korine’s third film in a wild and manic repertoire) he attempts to capture the essence and humility that exists inside social outcasts, creating both a fascinating and visually arresting feature.

Co-scribed by brother Avi, the brothers Korine create a world inhabited by punchy colour, romantic optimism and calm transition- a turn of style from the brash directors other cult entries.

Set in present day France, a young American busks on the hot summer streets as the king of pop- Michael Jackson. Armed with only himself and his impressive dance skills (check out his “signature” pose) he soon meets up with a beautiful and enchanting Marilyn Monroe impersonator played wonderfully by Samantha Morton.

It is not long after the two become friends that they set off to a commune for other impersonators, located in the Scottish highlands- where the rest of the bizarre story plays out.

Split into three segments (Man in the Mirror, Beat It, Thriller) the plot flows in and out of dreamlike tranquility and harsh reality.

It also features a second, completely different plot about flying nuns, led by a subversive priest played by Werner Herzog.

Now, I won’t ruin the surprise about what other personalities populate the area, but they are priceless- see above quote.

For me, and for probably a lot of other admirers of Korines work, this could be considered his most accessible film. Gone are the sporadic camera movements, chaotic editing and violent overtones, that peppered his earlier work. Here he seems more focused, mature and able to envision a world existing somewhere on the fringe of our own. The film really washes over you…each frame exquisite and entertaining. Combine that with his innate abilities to extrude humility with his accomplished cast, and you have his most arresting movie to date. Especially thanks to Luna’ puppy dog turn as a fragile, child like Michael.

Watch for the scene at the old folks home- it is both magical and hilarious… “whew-ooh! Don’t die, don’t die, don’t die!”

Visually, the movie is brilliant. So many things are perfect here. I could write a review solely on what is achieved technically, but in the end that would be pointless.

In short, this movie will not appeal to everyone. It is however more open for observation than the directors previous works. Even the most black hearted cynic cannot but feel energized and left wondrous after the credits come.
