Get Low

Rated PG-13 100 min. 2010



After all these years, Robert Duvall is still playing variations on Boo Radley. Here, he's called Felix Bush, a man who, after 40 years of mysterious backwoods seclusion, has decided that he wants to hold a funeral for himself—while he's still alive. There's a certain Preston Sturges-like appeal to this premise, and indeed, it's based on an actual 1938 episode in eastern Tennessee. However, principal screenwriter Chris Provenzano and first-time feature director Aaron Schneider are less interested in the picaresque details of the original episode than they are in making a redemptive, uplifting drama. It's a synthetic concoction, however, replete with busy editing, phony country accents and whinge-ing dobros on the soundtrack, while never achieving the authority of a film like Winter's Bone. Cast includes Bill Cobbs, Sissy Spacek and a scene-stealing Bill Murray.
