Good Matt Damon really can act - Stillwater review by CM

Spoiler Alert
19/12/2021

Matt Damon is totally convincable as an oil rigger, not so keen on the story line, strange to see him in a French film, he has a quiet demeanor subtle but powerful performance. The ending was strange, it would have been nice for him to end with the woman and child

Involving drama - Stillwater review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
08/01/2022

Low-key but involving drama about an ordinary mid-West Joe (Matt Damon) travelling to Marseille to prove his imprisoned daughter innocent of murder. Grounded in character and place, there’s no action and no set-pieces, but it’s is so well-plotted and efficiently directed that it keeps you invested from start to finish.

In fact the murder plot is less interesting than Matt’s growing relationship with the mother and young daughter with whom he stays in Marseille. This is beautifully handled.

If anything detracts, it’s the plot’s insistence on going its own idiosyncratic way, whether the audience cares or not. This is brave, but whether it’s successful or foolhardy, only you can judge.

Note to reviewers: please don’t give endings away.

A Moving Piece - Stillwater review by SG

Spoiler Alert
03/01/2022

This is a good film. I saw it on New Year’s Eve and it touched me.

Loosely based on the Meredith Kercher crime from 10 years ago, this is a deeply enthralling drama. Matt Damon’s character works on an oil rig; he chooses to go to Marseille to try and rescue his daughter from being imprisoned for a murder she says she did not commit. He plays his part extremely well. He doesn’t say much because that is his character, but what he doesn’t say is amplified by his body language and look and actions. He rarely expresses himself emotionally but you know full well deep down he loves his daughter to pieces and will go to the ends of the Earth to help her.

Some of this film is a fish out of water scenario ie he's in the middle of a French city & cannot speak the language and doesn’t understand the culture. It’s a good plot with an intriguing final 3rd to keep you glued to the screen. It’s one of Matt Damon‘s best for many years because he internalises all his emotions. The final scene is a masterpiece in expression… without speaking very much at all.

8/10
