    Format: DVD
    More like "Raging Bull" (boxing) and the F-word (Joe Pesci) than about a brothel. And the first half looks like a B-movie

    I'm a HUGE Helen Mirren fan, and I loved the DVD version of Director Taylor Hackford's film "Ray", so I was anxious to see this film, directed by Hackford and starring Mirren (his wife). Before watching the film, I clicked on the "bonus features" and watched the six-minute "Introduction" by Hackford and Mirren. It looks like it was filmed in their living room with home video camera. Hackford was doing most of the talking and Mirren looked like they had just woken her up. Not a good start.

    Then I played the film. It is based on the life of Reno's famed Mustang Ranch brothel in the 1970s and owner Joe Conforte and his wife. The "R" rating appears at the beginning and the explanation is "sexual situations and strong violence". Hmmm...... a film about a whore house with no nudity? Strange. Well, as another reviewer pointed out, for the first 45 minutes of the film, it looks like Mirren is sleepwalking through her role, and the hairdo she wears looks like a cheap wig (it isn't). Co-star Joe Pesci reprises his standard "Good Fellas" persona with the F-word being more than half of his dialogue (I'd love to have seen his dialogue portion of the script.). But after that 30-40 minutes, things change and we get real acting from Mirren. You'll know when that starts because she loses the curly hair and for the rest of the film its her standard straight hairstyle. (Was this symbolism that Hackford was giving us?).

    Anyway, if you looked at the cover art, you'd never know that this is a film about boxing, yet a good portion takes place in the ring with Hackford trying to make the fight scenes look like "Raging Bull" - though in color!

    I loved the way Taylor Hackford nails sexy, sleazy, seventies Nevada vice. Helen Mirren's portrayal of jaded Grace is worth at least three veiwings just to see this kind if woman played to perfection. Joe Pesci gives a multilayered turn as the heavy husband. The romance between Grace and her new business acquisition is hot hot hot! Only Dame Helen could have convinced us so well.

    I REALLY love the movie. Maybe its because I'm about the same age as Helen Mirren appears to be in the film but I was captivated by the entire story - in particular after the Boxer professed his interest in her. I think that the stark contrast between the hard world of prostitution compared to the abandon to the passion of the moment and the truly tender romance between the two lovers, both of them hardened and deeply injured by life, made for great drama and tragedy. Their wild abandon to share a few moments of true nurturing and caring sent a wonderfully simple message - love while you can. Yes, there were some corny scenes, and some raw comedy but I truly loved this movie - I cried at the end - and I will watch it again and own it soon. And readers, I repeat, if you know an older baby boomer woman looking for a fantasy cinema fling - this is definitely a Baby Boomer Romeo and Juliet flick with a unique love story based on a true story.

    I did enjoy this movie despite of my star rating. It was interesting. I was glad to see Helen Mirren's character coming out of her husband's (Joe Pesci) shadow and starting a new brothel business eventually with the same legal prostitutes. I cannot remember if he died or went to prison. But, he lost control...

    Joe Pesci is typed cast as a New Jersey thug. He plays the co-owner of the Love Ranch (Mustang Ranch) Charlie Bontempo (Joe Conforte). His co-owner wife, Grace (Sally Burgess) is played by the classy Helen Mirren. They had owned illegal brothels, which appears to have been easier than the headaches associated with legal ones and having to deal with "25 psychotics," as Grace puts it. The movie captured the bikini clad girls of the era. There is brief nudity and sexual situations as one would expect from such a movie, but it is minimal. Pesci drops the f-bomb like only Pesci can. The movie failed to capture the frequent celebrity appearances at the ranch. It focuses on the year 1976. Grace finds out she has cancer and maybe six months to live. She tries to tell Charlie, who is too busy with the talent. Charlie gets an idea for Argentinian boxer Bruza (Oscar Bonavena) to train at the ranch to attract clients. While at the ranch Bruza and Grace have an affair. The movie is based on a true story and did a fair job in following it. The closing dialogue of the movie implies that the ranch's tax problems came shortly after the shooting of Bruza in 1976. That is not true. It wasn't until 1990 that the IRS took over the Ranch and Joe Conforte fled to Brazil. The Mustang II ranch shown at the end of the movie was erected in 1982.

    Well this is your chance. Joe Pesci is hilarious as always. A cast of real classics out in the dessert strut their stuff for the knife wielding maniacs. You could live without seeing this movie but why risk a date with madness?

    New Mexico plays a perfect Reno NV and this film was very well done for the subject matter. Very tasteful yet edgy film. Helen Mirren is a treasure. Joe Pesci is amazing. Taylor Hackford did an amazing job capturing the mood of this film. Great work by newcomer Sergio Peris-Mencheta.
