Editorial Reviews

For wine dealer Alex Gates (Jack Nicholson) it hasn't been a vintage year-his business is on the rocks as is his marriage to Suzanne (Judy Davis). His stepson, Jason (Stephen Dorff), hates him, and his mistress, Gabrielle (Jennifer Lopez), is asking for a commitment. In desperation, Alex conspires with his safecracker buddy, Victor (Michael Caine), to steal a million dollar diamond necklace from a wealthy client.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tense and Exhilarating July 5, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is a beautifully filmed picture with a rich plethora of twists and turns to keep you guessing. It repeatedly questions your own morality through the use of several flawed protagonist who also double as the films antiheroes. Bob Rafelson paints breathtakingly colorful imagery on the screen and changes the mood of the scene through the use of color to great affect. Michael Caine, Jack Nicholson and Stephen Dorff give stellar performaces. But perhaps the most amazing thing about this movie is the dark subtext that lies beneath each spoken line. There are times when you can feel your heart sink from the bitterness of the unspoken words. Outstanding. Five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful characters in this film noir April 4, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I'm not a diehard fan of film noir movies, but this one appeals to me, largely because of the multi-dimensional characters, written with more insight and compassion than usually found in this genre. Even the most villainous character has an understandable reason for all-consuming greed; the rest exude depths of decency and honor when you least expect it. That makes it all worth watching; these are people worth watching and even rooting for. The main cast is uniformly magnificent... what a treat to see Caine and Nicholson play off each other so expertly, and Judy Davis is intelligent and stellar as always. Stephen Dorff continues to impress me with his "diamond-in-the-rough" surliness and Jennifer Lopez does better work here than I've seen before, adding extra likeableness to a plot that, on the surface, threatens to be more hard-boiled than it actually turns out to be. Although there are plenty of violent scenes, there's also just the right amount of vulnerability mixed in with the toughness, enough self-awareness and kindness mixed in with the hatred and selfishness. Great movie, great surprise!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rivetting performances October 21, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Excellent performances by the entire cast make this film well above average. Honestly, I don't know why this film didn't succeed at the box office. It has everything! Great acting by Nicholson, Caine, Dorff & Davis. Treachery, double crossing, action... you name it, it's there. Judy Davis' car accident was done very realistically. Stephen Dorff holds his own against the 2 legends Nicholson & Caine. Where did the film go wrong? I mean, why wasn't it a hit? Can't figure it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nasty bit of Neo Noir February 23, 2006
By Cubist
Director Bob Rafelson and Jack Nicholson had a number of memorable collaborations in the 1970s (Five Easy Pieces and The King of Marvin Gardens) and worked once together during the 1980s (The Postman Always Rings Twice) and again during the 1990s (Man Trouble). Towards the end of `90s, they made a nasty little neo noir called Blood and Wine. Like Robert Towne, Rafelson is a survivor from the `70s still using his reputation from that decade to make modestly budgeted, character-driven movies - the kind that established his career in the first place.

This is Jack Nicholson in one of his less showier roles, as if hooking back up with his old friend brought the character actor back out in him. It's a meaty role that eschews the charismatic movie star roles that he does in films like As Good As It Gets (1997), for much darker material. Alex is driven by greed and it gradually consumes him and Nicholson does a good job of conveying the effect it has over his character.

Michael Caine is also excellent as a really nasty piece of work - an ex-convict lacking the social skills that Alex's calculating, smooth operator has. Victor is a chain-smoker even though he's one coughing fit away from keeling over on the spot. He is driven by his lack of time. He knows that he's dying and Caine does a great job of conveying his increasing desperation. He manages to all but steal the film away from Nicholson.

Caine and Nicholson make a fun team to watch as the former sleazes his way through Blood and Wine with his greasy black hair and dry sense of humour that plays well off of the latter's increasingly desperate schemer. The fun of watching this movie is to anticipate all of the plot twists and turns that revolve around a diamond necklace.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blood, wine, and a really great story January 10, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Blood and Wine follows a very disfunctional family, played by Jack Nicholson, the wonderful Judy Davis, and Stephen Dorff. Also along for the ride are Michael Caine, and even a young Jennifer Lopez, who is actually a good actress.
The story follows Alex (Nicholson), who is a wine seller, but he also has a bit of a larceny problem as well. So as he's selling expensive wine to rich people, he's also stealing their jewels. And he's also cheating on his wife (Davis) with the beautiful nanny (J.Lo). And his stepson (Dorff) absolutely hates him. And his partner in crime (Caine) is an ailing psychotic. And that's just the background to the story.
There are plenty of good twists and turns in this thriller. The direction is great, as is the acting from everyone. If you're looking for a good thriller that you've never heard of, check this one out. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Blood and Wine' tops Florida film noir August 25, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
There have been several attempts at Florida film noir but 1997's 'Blood and Wine' may be the best. Jack Nicholson re-teams with director Bob Rafelson (The Postman Always Rings Twice). Nicholson star's as a cash - strapped wine salesman who has a scheme to steal a client's diamond necklace that's worth over a million dollars. Nicholson's motivation besides his money problem's is his failing marriage with his wife (Judy Davis) and his troubled relationship with her son (Stephen Dorff). Nicholson also is having an affair with (Jennifer Lopez) who happens to work for the people that Nicholson plans to rob. (Michael Caine) star's as a sleazy down and out safecracker who helps Nicholson in the jewel heist. After the heist is successfully completed , Nicholson hides the jewels in a suitcase and plans a plane flight to New York City for himself and Lopez in order to sell off the priceless gems. However , Davis arrives home unexpectedly and discovers the plane ticket's. Davis confront's Nicholson and a violent fight breaks out leaving Nicholson unconscious. Davis hastily takes the suitcase , packing it with her things not knowing the suitcase contains the stolen necklace and heads for a friends place to stay. Jack Nicholson and Michael Caine do make a marvelous team. The setting of the film is perfect as it takes place in Miami and other south Florida location's. There is just something that appeals with 'humid nights' , 'tacky bars on beach fronts' , 'eerie swamps' and 'swaying palm tree's' !!
