More fabulous reviews for "Mystic River"

Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s MYSTIC RIVER opened in select cities yesterday and received more stellar reviews. Kenneth Turan of The Los Angeles Times said, “‘Mystic River’ is a major American motion picture, an overpowering piece of work that involves some of the most basic human emotions: love, hate, fear, revenge, despair.” In The New Yorker, David Denby wrote, “Clint Eastwood has directed good movies in the past…but he has never directed anything that haunts one’s dreams the way ‘Mystic River’ does. This extraordinary film [is] an outburst of tragic realism and grief…” And Stephanie Zacharek wrote in, “‘Mystic River’ is hard-boiled beyond toughness: It’s so tender the skin falls away from the bone. It’s Eastwood’s most soulful, and most organic, movie.”
