Editorial Reviews

A down-on-his-luck American Indian recently released from jail is offered the chance to "star" as the victim of a snuff film, the resulting pay of which could greatly help his poverty stricken family.

Although this movie has yet to be release in the United States it has been in some places in Europe and in Hong Kong which is where I got my copy. This movie was filmed in 1997 and it marked Johnny Depp's directing debut which I believe he did a terrific job being his first time behind the camera. He also co-wrote the script with his brother.

This is a great film ( a little too slow perhaps at times) but nevertheless a very good movie. Johnny plays Raphael, a man with a wife and family to support in desperate need of a job. He has lost all hope and agrees to participate in a snuff film trading his life for a large sum of money so that his wife and two kids can lead a decent life. He strikes a deal with Marlon Brando (in a very small role) and has one week to live and spent every time possible with his family before he is to go back and participate in this horrible act that will eventually cause his demise.

The more pain he is able to withstand the more money his family will receive. I don't want to continue talking it about it because I would like for all of you to see it and decide for yourself if Rapahel did the right thing or not. He did it all for the love of his family and so that they live a better life since he was never able to give them much of anything.

The movie is somewhat dark and sad (obviously) and although I don't think this movie would do too well if it were to be release in theaters not because is not good but is kind of a depressing movie and it would not hold the interest of too many people I believe. Still I gave the movie five stars because I believe that Johnny Depp as well as the rest of the cast did a fantastic Job.

Although it seems that The brave is no longer sold on either DVD or VHS in america, the good new is that it can be found on Amazon UK. Problem being that it is a region 2 DVD which cannot be played on our drives, unless it supports PAL.

Just thought I'd let you guys know.

I was able to acquire uncut versions from an online auction (both dvd and vhs). I read the reviews of professional critics and I was surprised that they tore this film apart. It's moving, sad, and disturbing. Very well put together. Brando's character was chilling and he was excellent, as well as Depp's performance. Not bad for a first time director. This movie showed how very real poverty in our country is, the frustration of trying to get by, and a huge sacrifice a man was willing to make for his family. This is definitely a must see. Needs to be released in the U.S.

Format: DVD
The story revolves around a Native American Indian (Depp), who lives in poverty with his family and other Native American families in a scrapyard, miles away from the nearest town. The area may be Arizona or New Mexico, judging by the fact that many Native Americans listen to Spanish music, radio, tv, etc. He decides to be tortured to death in a "snuff" film and in return, his family will get $50,000 and will be able to live a better life. In the last 7 days he has to live, he spends as much time with his family as he can. In those 7 days, we chart Johnny's activities, his relationship with his wife and kids, with his friends, a couple of unfortunate encounters with the man who will torture him and his visit to the local church. I know, it may not sound very interesting but this film needs to be watched uninterrupted, with the right frame of mind and you need to have a good attention span. If you can appreciate fine acting and a film which elicits a very strong emotional response, then this would be the ideal film for you. I believe that it's the American public's loss that this film is not available on Reg 1.

What can I say about this film other than it's a masterpiece? The acting is so intense and the characters so believeable and completely in despair, that you genuinely feel heart-broken for them. I especially loved the first 5-10 minutes of the film, with beautiful music but no actual dialogue. For example, Johnny Depp is looking at his son in bed and his son is looking right back at him. It is such a powerful moment where not a single solitary word is uttered but it's almost as if they are communicating with one another telepathically.

It's as if both of them have a moment of clarity and just know that something awful is going to happen to their family.

Well, I got this DVD from ebay, but unfortunately it doesn't work in either of my DVD players. I did watch it on my computer, however. It turned out to be an excellent movie!
It is very well-done...Depp's acting and directing is remarkable. This is an extremely emotional movie, and I'm betting that Raphael's life is a parallel of Johnny Depp's life.

Raphael (Depp) and his family are exceedingly poor. This is a huge obstacle since Raphael would do absolutely anything for his family...even die. In the beginning, he finds a snuff film maker (Marlon Brando). For those who don't know, a snuff film is a film in which an actual murder is filmed for entertainment in a movie. Anyway, Raphael agrees to do it. He has one week before he is scheduled to die, but he will be paid $50,000. From this point on, many things happen. He builds a junkyard fair for his two children. He re-falls in love with his wife and kids. People are suspicious of his sudden large income. His home will be destroyed. Threats, murder, jealousy, and every emotion possible...all in the last 7 days of his life. And it is all for his love for his family.

It really is a beautiful story. Sad, but beautiful. Yes, perhaps it is a bit crazy to commit suicide just so your family can have money, but that's what love does to you. It makes you crazy. The only reason I gave it 4(1/2) instead of 5 stars is because the beginning was a little slow. Also, there is a lot of blood and the F word, but then again it is rated R. Besides that, I would say Depp's movie is a huge success. I guarantee that anyone who watches this will be moved.
