One can argue that the time period the film plays off would completely shatter all financial issues that carries weight in the film, since it's hard to relate in that aspect with the current economy but nevertheless, it's a hard pill to swallow and chances are you'll probably see something to identify yourself with in Frank and April Wheeler's characters, superbly acted by DiCaprio and Winslet. DiCaprio shows an acting side we have not seen of him yet and Winslet excels above her role in 'The Reader' in my opinion (stupid Oscar's, although I still think Jolie deserved it).

Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition) continues his brutal onslaught of anything emotional. If there are any issues in your relationship, unspoken or not; chances are Mendes will find them, he will trust me! Of course it makes for great art house cinema and a very challenging film to pull off but he does it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a film where you’ll sit with your better half and start pointing fingers because chances are you might as well sit with your elbow on your knee and keep pointing that finger. It’s also great to have two flawed characters instead of just one. You might think DiCaprio’s character is mostly at fault but take a closer look and you will see that April is not all that well either.

Enter Michael Shannon, a supposedly insane person with a PhD in Mathematics. His character befriends the Wheelers for a brief period and sees life in the same manner as the Wheelers used to. He quickly reminds them of who and what they used to be, what they wanted to accomplish and o my word does it pay off in one of the classic scenes in this film where Shannon exits the film but not before having a go at the Wheelers and especially DiCaprio’s character. Truly exceptional! Great character!

In the end though when all is said and done I couldn’t help but wonder what exactly the point of the entire film is, not that there isn’t one but it’s very…sinister, an absolute cracker in making you assess you life and all those depressing things we so easily put aside and not speak about. It’s not a film for everyone and it is a film for everyone, yes; it makes no sense but then it makes total sense. My favourite line in the film and the best line I’ve heard in a while from any film come from Michael Shannon:

“Hopeless emptiness. Now you've said it. Plenty of people are onto the emptiness, but it takes real guts to see the hopelessness.”

Oh my gosh. This is not a movie for the faint hearted. Nor is it for anyone who does not enjoy looking at the "real" side of life. I hated the movie but could not stop watching. I loved the movie but wished it would lighten up. I wept for the characters caught in the drama of life. This is a real story about real people. The wrong decisions that they make and the consequences of those decisions. The acting is superb and perhaps this is what holds you spellbound. However be warned, if you are expecting a fuzzy love drama Do Not press the start button. This is life "In The Raw"
