Editorial Reviews

Robert Longfellow (Martin Donovan) is a famous playwright who can t seem to catch a break. Retreating to his childhood home, he crosses paths with his former neighbor, Gus (David Morse), a right-wing ex-con who is Robert s polar opposite in every possible way. At a drunken reunion gone terribly wrong, Gus holds Robert hostage at gunpoint, leading to a shattering climax as status, celebrity and the imminent threat of violence converge.

Bonus Feature: Interview with Martin Donovan & Olivia Williams

First off, let me say that I think that David Morse is one of the most underrated actors working. Since winning me over with his stint on "St. Elsewhere," I've seen him develop into a reliable character actor that only rarely gets the recognition he deserves. Likewise, I'm a big fan of Martin Donovan. The king of understated deadpan, Donovan is always fascinating to watch! "Collaborator" is Donovan's debut as a feature film writer/director and it has some of the same offbeat humor that you might expect from its steely eyed star. Donovan has structured this work as an intimate chamber piece, very theatrical in nature. There isn't a lot of unnecessary frills in the staging or filming of "Collaborator," Donovan seems far more concerned with his words. And that's as it should be. Although there are peripheral characters and subplots, the heart of the movie unfolds like a tense two man show. Donovan goes toe to toe with Morse and that's where all the tension and drama develops, just from two men locked in close quarters.

Donovan plays a famous playwright on a critical decline. Fleeing to his mother's Los Angeles area home after a recent debacle, he just want to stay out of the media firestorm. In Los Angeles, he tests the waters with some career options, reconnects with a former flame (Olivia Williams) despite being married, and meets an old neighborhood acquaintance (Morse). Morse is troubled and volatile, and his desire to have a drink with his successful friend pushes the two into a tense standoff. A friendly refreshment soon morphs into a full fledged hostage situation. The two men will, ultimately, get the other to confront the inherent truths about their own lives and, in the process, come to understand their personal demons a little bit better as well.

Great movie! We thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a dark comedy and different than anything I have watched recently. Very good acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth watching June 19, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Collaborator is an interesting, insightful movie with great acting all around. A little bit comedy, a little bit tragedy, but overall just a thought-provoking 90 minutes that's well worth watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars compelling character development and conflicts June 22, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Engaging drama with compelling development of characters who are struggling with inner conflict. Accidentally discovered on Amazon and quite impressed. Well worth watching, if you enjoy interpersonal dynamics and glimpses into what lies behind society's conventional views of the highly successful and the abject failure.
