CHRIS COOPER IS RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR IN "SILVER CITY"! - 2004 JOHN SAYLES INDY-HORROR


Darrah Hannah, a true Saggitarius. From the brilliantly talented John Sayles comes this 2004 indie, political satire woven in with his usual character-driven story. Darryl Hannah is outstanding in her role but so is every cast member, an exquisite list of names in this one. Danny Huston gives an Oscar-worthy performance and it's great to see Richard Dreyfuss in something again, also great in his role. Sayle's story and script keeps the propaganda in check so the actor's performances can shine thru with their character's specific nuances, another thing Sayles is a master at. You can read some real reviews below, Pinewoods Rating System, a very worthy Three & 1/2 Pinewoods....The Horror!!

Silver City Movie Review & Film Summary (2004) | Roger Ebert

John Sayles' "Silver City" can be read as social satire aimed at George W. Bush -- certainly the film's hero mirrors the Bush quasi-speaking style -- but it takes wider aim on the entire political landscape we inhabit.

My message to the criminals is this: you straighten up or get out. There's no place for you in our state. You do the crime, and by God, you're gonna have to face your lumps. -Dicky Pilager (Chris Cooper), Silver City We didn't know, until his wife told us, that [Chris Cooper] did a very credible George Bush imitation, sometimes to torture her.

THE HORROR!!
