Customer Reviews

Was a Very slow moving and dull movie..
Anthony J. Marzullo
Tries so hard to be an art movie noir but they forgot to have a plot that makes even a little bit of sense.
David Earl English
I don’t know, it felt like it was trying too hard to be non-hollywood.

Format: DVD
There will likely be a small audience for this artistic little cinematic treasure SHADOWS AND LIES, but while the audiences crowd in line for the multi-million dollar retreads of comic book heroes and potty mouth 'guy or chick flicks' it is reassuring that there are experimentalists like writer/director/editor Jay Anania and his pupil, the multitalented James Franco who continue to push the edge of cinema and create the challenges of this jewel-like film.

Anania opens his film with a dark in medias res raw episode that quickly moves to an image of Joseph (James Franco) missing his flight to Japan because he steps out of line to retrieve a book. The plane crashes, killing everyone on board, and that opens the doors for Joseph to move to Manhattan to have a new life: he becomes William Vincent, a strange loner/drifter who has a job editing nature films for schools in a sparse storefront abode and also performs petty crimes. What gradually becomes apparent is that we maybe re-visiting what happened four years ago: William Vincent, a quiet and mysterious criminal, falls for a New York gangster's (Josh Lucas) favorite call girl Ann (Julianne Nicholson), after performing some 'deliveries' arranged by one Victor (Martin Donavan). When William's feelings are discovered Vincent is forced to flee the city, threatened with death if he should ever return. But after four years in exile (? in Japan), William secretly returns to rescue Ann from the life of derision and fear she is leading. There are quirky moments in the film where William is in the park and 'sees and talks to' two young brothers - Ty and Lewis played by Ty and Lewis Anania - who may simply be a part of William's previous existence as Joseph.

I saw this at the Tribeca Film Festival and loved it, and have just discovered it here. I think this is some of James Franco's best and most interesting work, and Martin Donovan, Josh Lucas, and Julianne Nicholson are all wonderful as well. Anania does not make films for the masses -- I've seen several of his works, and he is definitely working his own vein, exploring the silences between people, the interruptions that occur when normal lives are sent off course, the moments that other filmmakers mostly ignore. His films remind me of Hemingway's advice to Marlene Dietrich, when she wrote him at one point in her career not knowing what to do next. He wrote back, "Never confuse movement with action."

Almost all filmmakers ignore Hemingway's advice, which is why I love Anania's work, because he never does. The initiating accident of the film - a missed flight - sends Franco's character off into an entirely new life, and though he encounters criminals and violence, the focus remains on his choice to live a new life without any connections to other people. There's plenty of action in this film, though not very much movement, so I understand that filmgoers who are used to more conventional Hollywood fare might not have found what they came looking for. But if you're willing to give it your attention, and if you understand in advance that -- as with a challenging piece of music, or poetry, or painting -- you will have to do some work yourself, this film will more than repay your interest.

I really enjoyed this film noir that is beautifully shot with some amazing cinematography. The lead performance by James Franco is fantastic - as always - and I also loved Josh Lucas as the gangster boss and Martin Donovan really shines as his sidekick. Definately an indie worth watching.
