Editorial Reviews

Academy Awardr Nominees* Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Side Effects) and Casey Affleck (The Killer Inside Me, Gone Baby Gone) star as a pair of doomed lovers separated by prison bars and miles of desert wasteland in AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS, a moody collision of love and crime in the tradition of Bonnie and Clyde. Four years ago, impassioned young outlaw couple Bob Muldoon (Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Mara) were apprehended in the Texas hills during a shootout that left a local officer wounded by a bullet from Ruth's gun. Taking the blame, Bob was sentenced to 25 years in prison. After having engineered a daring escape, Bob is now determined to reconnect with the love of his life and meet the daughter who was born while he was incarcerated. But the journey back won't be easy, and the powers that be threaten to keep the two lovers apart forever. Co-starring Ben Foster (The Messenger) and set against the gritty landscape of 1970s Texas Hill Country, AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS is a breathtaking and exquisitely photographed meditation on the fragility and transience of love.

By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 20, 2013
Format: DVD
Writer/director David Lowery has gathered a superb cast of actor to explore a rather simple story, a cinematic folksong in the western sense (the film is set in the 1970s but could easily be timeless so far reaching are the themes): quite simply it is the tale of an outlaw who escapes from prison and sets out across the Texas hills to reunite with his wife and the daughter he has never met.

Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and his wife/girlfriend Ruthie Guthrie (Rooney Mara) and their kin Freddy (Kentucker Audley) have been `raised' by a man named Skerritt (Keith Carradine) and are bank robbers. In their latest attempt Freddy is killed and Ruthie shoots at and wounds Sheriff Patrick Wheeler (Ben Foster), but to protect his pregnant wife Bob takes the blame and is sent to prison for four years. Bob writes Ruth daily and longs to be reunited with her and their new daughter Sylvie and escapes the prison by cajoling a guard. Escaping means walking and hitchhiking with a young lad named Will (another impressive turn for Rami Malek). Bob finds a Gilead with Sweetie (Nate Parker) but is determined despite the odds to walk his way back to Ruthie as he had promised. Ruthie meanwhile is making do, raising Sylvie on her own, has been given a house by Skerritt, and is courted by the Sheriff she shot (he does not know that the shooter was Ruthie). There is as much silence in the film as there is dialogue, the characters meditating on the fragility of love and the sense of unpredictable fate. The ending is deeply moving.

Bradford Young provides the hypnotic cinematography, allowing the story to unfold gradually (if a bit too long under Lowery's direction). The musical score by Daniel Hart adds enormously to the overall mood of this film.

Some films come in like a hurricane, devouring us with frame after frame of intended poignancy. Other films take their time to develop something that feels soft and languid and subtly envelopes the audience into a story they cannot shake because it feels so authentic, so lived in and so honest.

The opening frames to `Ain't Them Bodies Saints' shows two sun-kissed lovers, Ruth and Bob, as they have an unidentified argument and Ruth threatens leaving. Bob offers to walk her to her mothers, since it is too far for her to walk on her own. In his playful, pleading, loving manner he wins her back without much of a fight and she falls into his arms, pretending to struggle yet you know that she is more than willing to take him back and forget this ever happened.

Besides, she's pregnant.

Thus starts with beautiful and haunting tale of love in the midst of adversity, some self-made and others heaped upon you by forces unknown. In the next few minutes their life spirals out of control in small vignettes that give us just enough information to keep the focus of this film clear. Circumstances surrounding a lot of what happens is left open-ended, ambiguous and detail-light. This way we continue to set our sights on the important things; like Ruth and Bob's relationship. A botched `job' sends Ruth, Bob and their semi-adopted brother into hiding in the home Bob and Ruth share. As police fire rings overhead, the three try and work out a gameplan, but shots are exchanged, death corrodes the atmosphere and both Ruth and Bob are taken into custody.

This is where the guts of the film come to bare their soul.

Bob is taken to prison, while Ruth is let off to raise her daughter on her own.

Hollywood has had a fascination in telling the private and personal stories of those living just outside the law probably as long as there’s been this thing called film. And why wouldn’t it? The press certainly has made a mint off of glamorizing the lifestyles of the desperate and the depraved. One could even make a case that it was reporters who truly brought the story of BONNIE & CLYDE to life. The reading public bought the legend (instead of the facts) hook, line, and sinker, so Tinseltown scribes are all-too-happy to one-up the legend whatever chance they get … which is essentially what writer/director David Lowery has tried to do with his latest, AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

Bob Muldoon (played by critical darling Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara) are one part lovers and two parts felon. Their love can’t quite survive a shoot-out in the hills of Texas, but when Ruth shoots local officer Patrick Wheeler (the always appreciated Ben Foster) in the crossfire, Bob steps up and does what he sees as noble: he takes the blame, and he’s sentenced to 25 years for the deed. As time goes by, Ruth gives birth to Bob’s daughter – Sylvie (Jacklynn Smith) – and Bob breaks out of prison, bound and determined to be reunited with his family. But can their love survive in a landscape that only sees them as criminals?
