Some great leading ladies, Gina Gershon's role kind of stale spoiler alert: wish she hadn't died :(
It would be a somewhat interesting story if the situations weren't set up by idiotic circumstances.
Discrepancy between the near-comedic plot and its bloody, naturalistic resolution dooms PICTURE CLAIRE.
Gritty and atmospheric, Picture Claire is a dark noir thriller. The story follows a girl who goes on the run after her apartment is burned down, but when she accidentally crosses paths with a smuggler she ends up being pursued by police and gangsters. The film has an interesting cast that features Juliette Lewis, Gina Gershon, Mickey Rourke, and Callum Keith Rennie. And the directing style is quite unusual, using split screens and different color filters. However, the storytelling is extremely poor, as is the character development. While there's some mystery and intrigue to Picture Claire, ultimately it ends up being rather mundane.
Great cast (Gina Gershon, Juliette Lewis, and, briefly, Mickey Rourke) wasted in weak neo-noir film.
A V.Good Directing ..
I don't want to hear one more word about her
Claire Beaucage is alone and in love. She ventures off to Toronto to find the man of her life and discovers he's not who she thought he was. She has no place to go and no one to go to when somehow she becomes entangled in a triangle of lies, deceit, robbery, and murder. Can Claire unwind herself from the confusion and perhaps rediscover true love?
"I bet she hates that...having her picture taken."
Bruce McDonald, director of Pontypool, The Dark Room, Trigger, Highway 61, and Roadkill, delivers Picture Claire. The storyline for this picture is discombobulated, hard to follow, and not particularly interesting. The acting is mediocre and the cast includes Juliette Lewis, Gina Gershon, Peter Stebbings, Callum Keith Rennie, and Mickey Rourke.
"Keep talking until you bore them."
Picture Claire is a movie that grabbed my attention because it "starred" Mickey Rourke; unfortunately, while his character was interesting, he was only in this picture 5-10 minutes. This movie reminded me of Run, Lola, Run which was also a dreadful movie with a limited plot. Overall, this film doesn't contain characters worth following and concludes with a whimper rather than a fireworks finale as one may anticipate.
"Heading back to Montreal, Cinderella?"
Its a shame movies like this never find an audience. I thought 'Picture Claire' was very entertaining. Juliette has finally been given a part to sink her teeth into. She's wonderful in the lead. The rest of the cast were good as well. Some truly funny moments. I just wish she had of kept the dog.
This movie tries way too hard to be cool, and it just simply isn't.
The odd casting of Juliette Lewis as a French Canadian who doesn't speak English seems peculiar, but she is amazingly terrific. An intriguing rather strange film. Not bad at all.
