Editorial Reviews

A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of Larry Brown's novel, celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. Directed by David Gordon Green, the film brings Academy Award(R) winner Nicolas Cage back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hot-tempered, ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble - until he meets a hard-luck kid played by Tye Sheridan who awakens in him a fierce and tender-hearted protector.

Joe (Nicolas Cage) is your basic good man with a low snap point. He works a crew under the table for the logging company. He has his vices and everyone in this small rural community knows him. Gary (Tye Sheridan) is a fifteen year old "boy left behind" who has issues with his drunken lazy father incredibly portrayed by Gary Poulter. Joe attempts to help the boy out without getting involved, while helping out others...everyone but himself.

The film moves slow to build character and background material. The gritty drama far outweighs the action aspect. This is a film that reminded me of "Winterbone" where we see a piece of a Southern rural community sliced open.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. Brief sex and nudity (Sue Rock?)

I don't understand all the negative reviews. This is a story, a very good story and fascinating too. Nicholas Cage has been impressing me lately with his small movies (The Frozen Ground is another good one). he does a great job, the supporting cast was mostly made up of locals that the director David Gordon Green found in the area and they are refreshingly natural. The standout is young Tye Sheridan, what a find and future star. Joe is an alcoholic ex-con who sees a 15 year old boy trying to make a life for him, his sister and mother only to have his horrifying drunken father beat him down all the time, figuratively and literally. If you are looking for an amazing story without giant robots or aliens or costumed heroes, then give "Joe" a try.

It's not family viewing, not by a stretch. Alright. What Joe is, is a story featuring two lead characters who remind me what I love in a hero. A true hero is real, which is to say, flawed, as we all are. But even the most flawed among us can act with sacrificial courage. It takes a special actor to pull that off so believably that you forget you're only watching a movie. In Joe, Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan do precisely that. Nicolas Cage gives a performance of such high caliber that I find myself pulled completely into the story. Tye Sheridan--amazing considering his young years--is just as convincing. This is no Coke and popcorn experience, other than that you might get to the end and find all your popcorn and Coke still there. It is the kind of movie I am always hoping for but very rarely ever get. The story is carried through with grit and shame and cruelty, but also with redemption and hope. Today, I got what I was looking for.

Nicolas Cage has been in a lot of good movies in his career; and quite a few duds lately. In "Joe," he has quite simply done his best work in years. Combined with up and comer Tye Sheridan, ("Mud") this powerful drama depicts Cage as a barely functioning, hard luck alcoholic, who time and again rises to the occasion, somehow stumbling and bumbling to do the right thing; in this case, coming to the rescue of a 15-year-old boy played by Tye Sheridan, a boy on the verge of manhood, mired in a desperate family situation, with an abusive, evil, alcoholic father, and a "helpless" mother and sister dependent upon the young man for survival. As Cage sees the "good" in the boy, so the boy brings out the good in Cage's character. The penultimate scene, where the boy hugs the man who rescued him, is a scene that jumps out at you, and is one of those powerful cinematic moments that you may never forget. This movie, and this performance, are Oscar worthy, for Best Picture, Best Lead Actor, and Best Supporting Actor - although, it's probably coming out too soon to be remembered by Oscar time. Tye Sheridan, whom I first saw with Matthew McConaughey in "Mud", and made that movie, is a talent to be reckoned with, and one that we will hopefully see for decades to come.

I can't believe the negative comments on this movie. Probably Nicholas Cage's best ever. If you like dark, gritty movies set in the South, don't miss this.

I've never been a huge Nicholas Cage fan, but he really won me over with his memorable performance as Joe, a tough but paradoxically sensitive, hard-drinking, lonely, childless, and at times, it seems, clairvoyant ex-con who runs a small forestry service and gives a great shake to anyone who looks him in the eye and works hard. Tye Sheridan is similarly good as Gary, a stalwart 15-year-old with an abusive alcoholic father who comes to work for Joe and unexpectedly finds a surrogate father in him. There is an interesting alter-ego effect between Joe and Gary's father, Wade "G-Daawg," who, interestingly, was convincingly played by Gary Poulter, a homeless man who died on the streets of Austin a couple of months after JOE's filming was complete.

There have been a lot of comments about how depressing and "slow" JOE is, and it's definitely not the thing to see if you're in the mood for something fun and uplifting or something with tons of thrills and action. It's a slow-burner with a quietly hypnotic plot and a mildly explosive--and very moving--ending. While it's not quite on the level of 1996's Oscar-winning Sling Blade, it's reminiscent of that film, with a similarly believable anti-hero as its central character. Though JOE is understandably not for all tastes, the realism is undeniable: This is the sort of stuff that really happens and the kind of people who really exist.
