Final Cut Movie Review Summary

Actors: Jude Law, Sadie Frost, Ray Winstone

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Final Cut

This is a very confusing film which starts with the death of Jude (Law), a young filmmaker who has been making a film prior to his death. All his friends have gathered at the wake which his widow (Frost) is seemingly inexplicably filming. She tells them he has been using video footage they know about and then shows his project. He's been clandestinely taping his friends at their possible worst. First he shows them in light-hearted moments, then continues, showing them stealing from each other, talking about each other while ingesting coke, and in increasingly bad lights so much so that they begin to question their relationships with each other.

This is a strange film that feels like a film school or theatre project. All the characters have their own given names. There appears to have been no writer. Surely these fine actors could have been coached to do better improvisions if that was the case.
