Last evening was another margarita and a movie night at the Law household. Mystic River was the flick. This has to be the saddest and most depressing movie ever. But, the acting was so good that it made it worth watching. I just can’t say enough about Sean Penn–he just might be the greatest actor ever. I was blabbering on so much about Naomi Watts in my 21 Grams review that I failed to mention what a good job he did in that movie as well.
And if Sean Penn is the greatest actor, Tim Robbins has to fall in the top 10. His performance in this movie was superb. I’ve always thought he was good, but this movie confirmed my suspicions.
Here is a brief review from the Filck Filosopher.
