4.0 out of 5 stars a must-see for Mark Pellegrino fans July 26, 2012
By Lydia
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A slow-paced slice of life drama, "Joint Body" is the sad tale of Nick Burke,
a man who just can't seem to stay on the right side of the law.

Newly-paroled and forbidden from contacting his ex-wife and daughter, Nick tries to move on with his life,
only to risk everything during an impulsive decision to help Michelle,
a troubled younger woman who seems just as jaded and desperate as Nick himself.

Daunted by the prospect of returning to prison, Nick sets out to escape with the ambivalent Michelle,
who hasn't decided for herself yet if she either wants or deserves to be saved by Nick.
Only after a heartbreaking final attempt to see his daughter do we realize just how he may enact that escape,
for as Nick puts it, he was always guilty of "taking the easy way out."

Alicia Witt gives a convincing performance as the skittish and bitter Michelle,
and the ex-con Nick would most likely be less sympathetic in the hands of someone less skilled than Mark Pellegrino.
Fans of the consummate guest actor (always excellent in "Lost", "Supernatural", and "Being Human")
will enjoy seeing his talents on display in almost every scene here.

Enjoyed this well crafted movie with wonderful performances by the whole cast -- especially Mark Pellegrino, Alicia Witt, and Tom Guiry. Engaging dramatic thriller for an adult audience. This movie is definitely worth checking out! Would agree #JointBody is a winner.

Intriguing story line, Mark Pelegrino has just served 7 years for a smorgasbord of crimes, the last
we're told was driving a stolen car with is 6 year old daughter. And before he's released, he's forced
to sign over all parental rights to his b*tch ex wife.

First day on the street, we see him meet with his buddy buddy Parole Officer, attend the first of 3 mandatory
per week 12 step meetings, and bump into a stripper played by Alicia Witt, who is looking so forelorn here
she is barely recognizable. Day 2 is looking up as he is surprised by the news his brother is now a Vice cop,
who has an envelope for $4,000 from his father's life insurance, and who also delivers to him a pistol, a major
No No for convicted felons. OK, this story has promise.

I cant tell you what happens next, its a major spoiler but it ain't good! BTW, if you've never heard of Mark
Pelegrino, he played Rita's abusive ex-husband on Dexter, and Dexter chopped him up into itty bitty tiny pieces
and dumped him in the ocean. LOL

This movie is severely underrated and unknown yet I have no idea why. Nearly everything about it is absolutely
fantastic. The acting is great and believable, hats off to Mark Pellegrino especially, and the plot is well-written and
kept me engaged and wanting more until the very end.

The only reason I'm giving this 3 beans is because of the rather odd ending that didn't make a lot of sense. I don't
think it detracts that much from the movie or would put anyone off from re-watching. Maybe you just have to leave
it up to your own imagination. Sometimes that makes more sense than the stark and brutal ending that you expect.
