105 min of stunning picture and directing. Amazing and would recommend to anyone who loves dark story.
There are numerous biblical parallels that come to mind in "Juggernaut," including the story of Cain and Abel and the lessons to be learned from the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. But the one that seems most apt is The Return of the Prodigal Son. The two Gamble brothers, Dean and Saxon, never got along as children. One of the boys (Dean) found his way to success while the other (Saxon) landed in prison. When he is released, Saxon returns home to bewilderment and consternation when he learns that his mother died and left him money from a life insurance policy. Something does not set right with Saxon, as he believes there might have been foul play in his mother's death. The film turns into his quest for the truth. The action is set in 1986 in New Mexico. There is stunning footage of the landscape with breath-taking vistas and beautiful rolling fields. But the interior scenes of bars, shabby homes, and the principal industry of the town, the prison established by Dean, boldly contrasts with the picturesque outdoors scenes, resulting in mystery and menace. The film includes some untidiness in revealing the true story of what happened to Saxon's mother. In many ways, the thriller aspect of "Juggernaut" is secondary to the mood established when Saxon returns and hits a raw nerve in everyone with his presence. Saxon is an intriguing character, who knows Shakespeare and identifies with the word misanthrope. The wise old owl of the town reminds Saxon that "we all have to figure out what we can live with." But that advice appears to fall on deaf ears with a man with a vengeance of biblical proportions.
This film if without checking the shooting locality and the accent people spoke, you might mistakenly thought it's an Irish film, but no, it's not. The whole movie gave you no sunshine, no nothing except always a cloudy sky, grim and dark all the time. The movie told you that the older brother made the town richer since he ushered a prison(private own?) to be built in this dreary deadbeat town, but it didn't show you any proof that this town's thriving image, still got a small police force, maybe two cops(s)?. There's not much to see about anything, even we didn't see several key persons existed in this town. The film also told you through the old brother, telling his younger brother, an ex-con after he had served up his prison sentence, that they both got compensation payments from their suicided mother's life insurance. It didn't tell you the exact insured period of time whether her mother's life insurance was after she committed suicide after two years suicide clause, and how much the life insurance policy was insured. Also, guess the timing background was 1986, so the guy could still smoke in any place he wanted. The whole movie was at a very slow pace and purposely used the lousy weather condition, always dark and grim to give you an impression it was a suffocating film, only the son who came back believe his mother's death was not a suicide but a murder. But as a viewer like me, I just couldn't care less for this story, so I needed a lot of patience to sit through it. To the end, I felt none of any deep feeling to all of the characters and the film itself. It's a no big deal film that pretentiously provided you with some melancholy touch. Not a bit memorable at all.
