4.0 out of 5 stars Friendship October 6, 2008
By Reader
I picked this movie because of Timothy Olyphant. I like his performance in HBO series "Deadwood" but have not seen him on the big screen yet before I got this movie. His big dark eyes are mesmerizing and his quiet walk hints that there is a trouble to this character that is difficult to decode right away. Olyphant plays a convict released early from the prison who returns to his home town. He wants to collect money from a job that landed him to prison in a first place and reconnect with friends from his youth. His best friend is a sheriff, kind and caring, if not dull - who is married to a beautiful woman both men love. Can this love triangle survive the temptations? Where does loyalty and frendship fall into the play? Can someone start over his life after terrible personal loss? Good story, lots of action, great characters and moving emotional power.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait... February 12, 2007
By Cubist
Victor Nunez may not be the most prolific filmmaker - he's made five feature films in 28 years - but the ones that do exist are intimate portraits of characters in transition, often leaving a bad situation in the hopes of starting a new life. His films are set in Florida (the state that he hails from) and his latest, Coastlines, is no different. However, because it was independently financed, the film has taken five years to finally see the light of day on DVD but for fans of Nunez's work, it has definitely been well worth the wait.

Right from the opening credits Nunez establishes the setting and the main characters of the film. He does a great job creating a sense of place, immersing us in the town and the people that inhabit it with the way he shoots everything and uses location and music. For example, he employs several evocative overhead long shots of the landscape that really go a long way in setting a particular mood and atmosphere. There is a consistency to the way he shoots his movies and Coastlines feels like it was shot in the 1990s along with his last two efforts, Ruby in Paradise and Ulee's Gold.

Nunez also has a knack for drawing very naturalistic performances out of his actors. These characters behave and speak like actual people and not like movie stereotypes. There's an ease and natural flow to their conversations. It's great to see actors like Timothy Olyphant, Josh Lucas and William Forsythe, who normally play larger than life characters in more mainstream fare, portray more realistically-written characters.

The nature of the story - a drama mixed with a crime thriller - lends itself to a potentially sensationalistic approach but Nunez treats every aspect of the movie (even the blowing up of a house) in a matter-of-fact manner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low budget indie melodrama July 24, 2009
Despite Josh Brolin's presence, this indie film smacks of low budget, though its tale of revenge, with a love triangle on the side, makes for pleasant viewing. Set in the Florida Panhandle, the film doesn't make very clear what the central character wants from the two evil marina guys, though he seems to want some money owed him before he went to prison for some drug activities. The action parts of the film are the weak link, but the character development of the love triangle participants is decently done. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coastlines May 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Being a huge Timothy Olyphant fan, I knew I would not be disappointed and I wasn't. This is an emotional little movie with characters that are flawed and so human. I would suggest this film to others.

I recently became a fan of Timothy Olyphant after watching the new series 'Justified', one of the best programs on FX or any other network. Fortunately, he does not disappoint in 'Coastlines', not one little bit. Writer and director, Victor Nunez manages to confer a depth of character upon our protagonist that leaves us really caring what happens to him. In fact, even the children in this film are gifted with personas that make them memorable.

Sonny is a rather tragic fellow just returning home from a three year prison stint, hoping to start over. His relationship with his father is ambiguous on a good day. The affection between them is obvious, but his father just seems compelled, whenever he opens his mouth, to say something disparaging about his son. Unfortunately, Sonny's resolution towards a quieter life is marred slightly by unfinished past business gone bad. Nunez brilliantly culls these moments and experiences to lay open the finely nuanced aspects of Sonny's character, allowing us to really see into his soul.

The music chosen for this movie is so very apt to the spiritual threads throughout. We hear some Jazz, Blues, Zydego and the movie ends on the laid back, go-with-the-flow of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Call Me The Breeze". So apropos!

While some have criticized Dave's (Josh Brolin) kindness to Sonny after he misappropriates certain family valuables, so to speak, I came away with a totally different perspective. I grew up in churches that taught, repeatedly, the concept of unconditional love, yet not often have I witnessed it. The camaraderie that Sonny, Dave and Anne had formed over so many years was closer than blood. Indeed, there had to be rules and boundaries, but forgiveness, upon remorse, was a given.

In conclusion, the good guys were flawed, yet they were heading in the right direction and the bad guys... Well, they were heading in the correct direction. Love it!
