I saw this at Cinequest in San Jose, in the gorgeous CaliforniaTheater, but this movie would look good in the homeliest cineplex. Thisis the rarest of thrillers: one that makes its impact through carefulcharacter studies and a refusal to give up its secrets. Frank Langellagives a sterling performanc...
This film is very different from the one characterized in the postedreview. So different that I wonder if the reviewer watched the film orwas told about it. The protagonist,Jimmy, beautifully acted by FrankLangella, was not seeking suicide. A contract murderer was hired by hiscompany to stop him fro...
This was really quite a good movie, but not necessarily one for"consumers" of movies not accustomed to dialog between characters, orthose who expect the meaning to reside primarily in the plot. In thisfilm, the minute details of who is trying to kill the protagonist andexactly why, is purposely left...
I have watched the film life of Frank Langella beginning with 'TheTwelve Chairs' back in the 70s'. His Charismatic ability and dynamicscreen force is impressive. This movie calumniates with all thecinematic experience he has accrued over his career. The film isentitled " The Caller." If you are expe...
This film is not about corporate scandal, suspense or mystery; allthose elements were simply the vehicle to get to the point: Death & howone deals with inevitable death. The story is extremely contrived andoverly elaborate, which became dull and frustrating because everysingle character, item or act...
I always think to myself , 'if I can bear to watch a movie 5 times ormore then it's not so bad', and this movie was for me extremelywatchable but mainly because of the great actors involved, FrankLangella and Elliott Gould. I suppose if it had been made with lessertalent, a contrived story like this...
Don't walk in to "The Caller" expecting any explosions or nudity,because you won't get it. (In fact I believe only one gunshot is usedin the film).Frank Langella and Elliot Gould, arguably two of Hollywood's mostunderrated, star in this sleeper thriller that follows Jimmy Stevens(Langella), an energ...
The plot has many elements that are similar to The Conversation butthey are much more direct. I believe this allowed the characters to bemore compelling as the viewer's brain isn't constantly spinning in aneffort to solve the puzzle. Like most of the characters you'll probablyknow how things are goi...
This is one of those films that never gets off the mark. It has aninteresting premise, but then it's characters stop communicating.Everything they say has a constipated double intent. Some of them don'tknow what is going on and, unfortunately, neither do we. So we get allthis talk, passing by the re...
This is one of those films that just lays there and screams "LOOK ATME! I'M SO DAMNED MEANINGFUL, AREN'T I?" Before it was halfway over,all I wanted to scream back was "NO! YOU DAMNED WELL AREN'T!"I'm not even sure where to start with this thing. The plot is largelybuilt on a mystery that it all but...
A great film for film students to watch as it's been said one can learnthe most from the most bungled projects. The endless use of tritesymbolism, pointless bits of plot, total lack of character developmentmake this a mess based on someone's unedited, overloaded psyche.What might suck you in as it d...
This is not worth the electricity it takes to play it in a DVD player.I've seen thousands of movies and this with out a doubt ranks downthere way at the bottom. Please save your time and just take a nap orsomething; I've seen home movies better than this. Now, the actors wereokay; the story line was...
This is pretty feeble. Characters are introduced just to look nice. Thelittle girl in the park, the attractive blues singer who I suppose themain protagonist is having an affair with – who are these people andwhy are they in the movie? There is no connecting the dots.There is a lot of wandering...
I wish I had it so I could have shot myself and saved myself fromwatching this pretentious piece of refuse. This movie is dull,uneventful, and slower than a snail. The first 45 minutes seemed likethey took 3 hours to watch. It goes nowhere, is poorly written, and isfilled with trivial scenes which s...
I Cant believe i Wasted 90 Minutes of my life watching this,NoAction,Not Thrilling,Garbage.This film is very different from the onein Other Reviews. So different that I wonder if the reviewer watchedthe film or was told about it by Somebody involved in the Making ofit??.. The protagonist,Jimmy,was n...
