A treat for the morning

Since Movie Mix has been taken over by Sony it's had some little gems on in the mornings. Called thrilling mornings it's been a lot better. I'm a fan of a lot of films because I always think of the sheer hard work to make a movie. Anyway this film is a pretty good film. You can see the level of acting and sets the filmography all of it's good. I think assessing it as a longer version of Law and Order is a bit mean to both Reflections and Law and Order. So this is a little gem. Good plot interesting culture shock as it's set in Spain. How outrageous is that? No I think it being out of the usual Quantico USA setting helps it. Timothy Hutton is good as the tired out FBI officer All supporting Spanish actors have lots to offer. It's really well done. It keeps you guessing how it's going to play out and has a few surprises along the way. Keep it up Sony Movie Channel. For free view you're pretty good and now you've upped the ante let's hope others follow suit. I love a good black and white movie but movies for men should actually put some classics on not weird Ed Wood type films made on a budget of three pence! There is a place for them just not for 24 bloody hours on a constant loop.

Timothy Hutton on the trail of a serial killer in Spain

"Reflections" (2008) is a serial killer picture, a sub-genre of crime movies that has many entries. Timothy Hutton is the head detective. He plays the part in a calm, mature, laid-back style. He's been around and he knows how to deal with people psychologically. I liked his performance.

To be fresh, a serial killer movie needs some kind of creative twist. This has a very good one. The killer has an identical twin. He cooperates with Hutton, reluctantly, to create a profile that might help trap his brother.

The screenplay, however, didn't live up to its promise. The story as told wasn't paced well, too often going on tangents and not developing promising directions. It became wordy too. Some killings seemed rushed and gratuitous. Some clues that were good ones seemed to be left hanging. The detailed investigation seemed to flag. Suspense and forward momentum were the victims of these failings.

Some of the acting was uncomfortable and awkward. This didn't help either.

All in all, this picture is below average for the genre. It's not without interest, but it was a bit of a slog to see it through.

Timothy Hutton in Spain

In 2008's Reflections, Timothy Hutton plays a Europol agent, Tom Brindle, who travels to Barcelona to find a serial killer called Pygmalion.

When DNA from one of the murders is matched in a military database, Brindle thinks he's got his man, named Marco (Miguel Silvestre). But he's in for a surprise when Marco turns out to have been in lockup during the last murder.

Turns out that Marco has a monozygotic twin who is ten years older. Both are the product of in vitro fertilization; the egg was cut in half -- half implanted, half refrozen and not fertilized until ten years later.

Marco agrees to cooperate because it's believed that even though separated, he may share some of the same characteristics, hobbies, etc. as his twin and can be of help tracking him down.

Interesting idea not very well executed by a somewhat boring and slow film that nonetheless has some excellent acting by Timothy Hutton. If anyone ever started out on a high note, it was Hutton. I'm not sure what happened except that he should be where Sean Penn is today.

Beautiful Spanish locations.
