Editorial Reviews

Thirteen years ago, boozed-up Harry Graham (Robert Mitchum) savagely murdered his wife. A witness – his horrified little son – provided the testimony that put him behind bars. Now Harry is out, living in a seedy trailer park with a loving woman (Brenda Vacarro), when a reminder of his past shows up: his now-grown son (Jan-Michael Vincent). As father and son circle each other, as past and present intersect, tension grows until it finally erupts in a shock of violence. In a powerful performance, Mitchum brings enigmatic menace to the role of Harry Graham. Along with James Cagney and Jack Nicholson, Mitchum appears twice on the American Film Institute’s list of the 50 greatest villains of all time: as the ex-con who terrorizes Gregory Peck’s family in Cape Fear and as the psychotic backwoods preacher in The Night of the Hunter. Says Roger Ebert, “Going Home is worth seeing primarily for the presence of Robert Mitchum.”

This is one of the hardest Robert Mitchum films to find, so I was excited to see it available at last. Mitchum is brilliant, as usual, in this. The film is not for the faint of heart--it's an intense film full of sadness, with some brutal moments. Mitchum was really on a roll with this film, "The Yakuza," "The Friends Of Eddie Coyle," etc.

If you're a Robert Mitchum fan you'll enjoy this movie, it's quite a sad, involved plot, not one that will appeal to everyone, but it does keep your interest. The support actors Jan Michael Vincent and Brenda Vaccaro do a fine job and as usual Robert Mitchum acts the part to perfection. I can understand why this movie never went down as a main line movie basically because the subject matter is not a pleasant one, but as they say these things do happen in life and the difficult story is handled quite well. You could say it's a thought provoking film. Definitely worth watching in my view.

A very tense drama. Both Robert Mitchum & Jan Michael Vincent played their roles really well. The movie definitely showed how violence destroys families & individuals, especially when the anger & rage go unchecked for years as it did with Jan Michael Vincent's character toward the end of the movie. The poor guy should have gotten some help with all he was having to deal with, but they just basically kept him in an orphanage until he was old enough to leave & he had to deal with all that stuff on his own. Not a good combination. All in all, it was a good movie.

When you think about it this movie is pretty absurd. Harry Graham(Robert Mitchum) gets sent up the river for murdering his wife(Sally Kirkland) while in a drunken state. Released thirteen years later his son, Jimmy (Jan-Michael Vincent), who witnessed the murder and subsequently went from orphanages to foster homes looks him up. Harry is living in a ramshackle trailer in Wildwood, New Jersey and carrying on with one of the trailer park ladies(Brenda Vaccarro). Jimmy comes to stay with Harry but what what are his ulterior motives-to rekindle the familial bond, to find out why Harry did the dastardly deed, or kill Harry. Unfortunately the focal point of the movie is Jimmy and not Harry. Jimmy needs to be played by an actor of consummate skill and Vincent has the range of a slab of meat. The only thing he does well is take his shirt off. He should have auditioned for "Magic Mike" but you have to see to believe Vincent's one dance scene in the movie. Ultimately the film goes adrift and you really don't care what happens. A shame because Mitchum and Vaccaro are quite good. If you're a Mitchum completist this movie may be of marginal interest.
