The Making of The Sunset Limited
Top Customer Reviews
So, for that, we've got to thank HBO (the undisputed leader in TV movie productions) and Tommy Lee Jones who also takes a producer and the directing credit for this intimate work. Set in Jackson's apartment, "The Sunset Limited" unravels in real time in the aftermath of an incident at the local train station. Jackson attempts to engage Jones in a discussion about what happened as well as keeping him safe from further harm. A former convict, Jackson's real life stories are filled with harrowing details and his redemption provides ample evidence of a greater good. Jones, an intellectual with a more pragmatic worldview, spars back with an elaborate cynicism.Read more ›
The entire movie takes place inside Black's apartment as he tries to argue White into choosing life.
For 90 minutes they have a theological debate about God and their purpose on this earth. The debates are powerful and the conversations moving. Sunset limited makes up for the fact that it consists of no beautiful panoramic screen shots and channels all of its artistic energy into enhancing the script. The director chooses to set the scene with words of poetry rather than with colorful images. The decision to paint the movie through words rather than pictures is very rare and ends up adding a fantastic element to the Sunset Limited.
An incredibly dark tale but a very worthwhile film to watch.
The camera angles in the last few moments and the last phrase uttered by "Black" is powerfully and dramatically well done.
