From Scott Cooper, the critically-acclaimed writer and director of Crazy Heart, comes a gripping and gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance, and justice. Russell Baze (Christian Bale) has a rough life: he works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day, and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell's brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so - with nothing left to lose - Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother.

Out of the Furnace is a very special film in that I have not witnessed a sadder character in years that the one Bales plays in this movie. I was 'suspended in suspence' the entire movie wondering what turn his character would take, which is where Christian Bales' talent lies. He takes you on a ride and you have his undivided attention the whole way! I distract myself during his films by constantly repeating to myself, "How does he do that to me? How can he stay in focus so completely? How can he go from one character in one movie to a completely different character, with a different weight, accent etc. in another?" Love CB and love all of his movies! Now, Moses???? Yes, yes!!! Am constsantly thinking how lucky the other actors are to be in a movie with him, even though he's difficult; working with professionals, the ones at the top of their games are the most difficult at times and CB is definitely at the top of his game!
The characters were well developed, the acting was universally brilliant IMO, and the story was believable. Nothing was unnecessary....every scene had its proper place in the movie, each line was well thought out...really, really good film in my opinion.
I dont know that I will ever watch it again, but it is one of the better movies I have watched in recent memory. It wont make you feel good, is mostly lacking in humor (although there is a touch of sardonic humor in the movie), and will leave you feeling sad and somewhat introspective. At least, that is what I got out of the movie.
Well worth a screening.
