Editorial Reviews

A terrific cast will hold you spellbound in this one of a kind seductive thriller from the screenwriter of The Recruit. The last thing washed-up jazz musician Nate Pool (Academy Award-nominee Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler) wanted to do was betray sinister gangster Happy Shannon (Academy-Award-nominee Bill Murray, Lost in Translation). But it may be the last thing he does unless he can deliver Lily (Megan Fox, Transformers), a beautiful and mysterious carnival sideshow attraction. The stakes can't get any higher for the two lovers as they try to elude the merciless killer who will stop at nothing to keep Lily for himself. Kelly Lynch (Drugstore Cowboy) and Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill) costar in this gritty and unpredictable tale of redemption in the hard-boiled tradition of classic film noir.

I really liked this movie a lot. I watched it on cable one night with no expectations.
Mickey Rourke was fantastic as the burnt out trumpet soloist Nate and Megan Fox was quite good in a role
that allowed her to stretch her wings a bit (no pun intended lol).

I loved the whole David Lynch styled atmosphere of the film and couldnt find too many things to say about it
except I believe the critics were wrong. They are like vultures and will pick off a film if they feel the others
circling - sometimes I believe movies are dismissed because of what their peers think.

To go into the plot at all will spoil it for those who havent seen it, but this is definatley one
of Rourke's most interesting roles since Angel Heart and Bill Murray is sensational as the bad guy.

Dont listen to the critics - they got it wrong - Passion Play is a suprislingly excellent little film with touches
of Noir and is shot with an arthouse sensibility. And with the drivel that is being spewed out of the pens and
studios of Hollywood at the moment this is one of the more original films to come along in a long time.

If nothing else, Mitch Glazer's "Passion Play" scores points for being different. Part existential drama, part swoony romance, part gangster epic, and part fantasy parable--this offbeat tale actually works better than you might anticipate. Expecting relatively little, I bought into this adult fairytale and its eccentricities. For its first hour, it spins a rather sweet fable with deceptively hard edges. It is in this juxtaposition of moods and themes that the movie really sets itself apart. But after establishing an effective premise and winning me over--the film suddenly loses a bit of momentum, takes a complete tonal shift, and ends on a rather unsubtle note meant to be uplifting and fraught with meaning. It's like there was an intriguing idea for a story, but the movie doesn't know how to get to its end in a dramatically cohesive way. Still, I liked the film--but I definitely felt a division between its parts. The first hour rated about 4 stars, but the final thirty minutes kind of felt hollow for me.

When a hapless jazz musician (Mickey Rourke) raises the ire of a local gangster (Bill Murray), he soon finds himself looking down the barrel of a gun. Narrowing avoiding execution, he stumbles upon a traveling carnival and becomes enchanted with Megan Fox who performs as a sideshow attraction. I'm sure plenty of reviews and descriptions of the movie will give you more information--but I think the film works best if you let a few surprises occur naturally. Soon Fox and Rourke hit the road but their blossoming romance is threatened by Rourke's need to square himself with Murray. Fox's allure may be just the ticket to saving his life. Through no fault of the actors, it is when Fox and Murray meet that the film starts to lose a bit of its life force.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie man January 21, 2014
By Kprizzy
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I saw Passion Play through yesterday. A friend of mine recommended it because it was related to another movie which I had just seen and really liked.
The first thing that got me was the cover. It is just are a really cool looking thing and I really wanted to see the movie right after I saw the cover.
I am more of a fantasy movie lover and this is really one of those rare fantasy movies that you can literaly sit and watch and watch and watch. It has all the characteristics I love in a fantasy movie - intrigue, magic, love and romance and some kind of storyline that revolves around a developed world. There were a couple of very traumatic things that happened to the heroine in the beginning, but I don't want to give too much away. The movie definitely exceeded my expectations and I recommend it to anyone out there who loves fantasy movies.
