Plot: Barkley Michaelson is in a deep life rut. He's struggling to finish his PhD thesis when his father, the learned Eli Michaelson, wins the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Barkley and his mother, ... Runtime: 110 mins Release Date: 28 Apr 2007
It's edgy, fast-paced, super hip, has a "bangin" electronica soundtrack Oakenfold/Crystal Method etc all the while amazingly witty and funny.It's a great combination, being one part psychological thriller, one part comedy. Combining lighthearted romp with details of chemistry and forensics, cannibalism,and kidnapping.... plus such a great cast great to see actress Mary Steenburgen with such a pivotal role, and Danny Devito is great as the special neighbor. Great cast. Everyone working together so swimmingly, too.A list cast, college kids will appeal to younger AND <more>
older viewers. Not a frat house romp. There is a tendency to assume that a combination of college and comedy means necessarily puerile, but there is nothing low-brow going on in this film. Saw a trailer first that didn't come anywhere near telling the story that trailer made it all about sex and the film is not about sex. It's good, that's all I can say. We laughed ourselves sick! This film is dope.Rickman's character is deliciously flawed and OMG I've had profs like him! His family are altogether typical intelligentsia, and his son... well... you've known a guy like him too.. there's always someone like him in school.What's great is how all the ends tie up neatly, without a cliché' reveal. And did I mention the killer soundtrack? Nothing like a perfect soundtrack to carry one through all the action.DO NOT miss this film. It was SO good.
Movies today, are good. I enjoy what they have become, but the art has slowly dripped out of films with a few exceptions. This is definitely one of them. I was very happy with my choice to see this one, having not heard of it I went in not knowing what to expect. I felt that way until the closing credits. It was a fantastic movie of ups and downs and twists and turns, that kept me guessing. The superb acting of the veterans like Alan Rickman, Mary Steenburgen, Danny DeVito, and Bill Pullman. Eliza Dushku continues to excite her audience and prove herself on the screen. Bryan Greenberg and <more>
Shawn Hatosy have done great jobs recently and I look forward to seeing them more often. I hope Randall Miller continues his run of good movies after Bottle Shock and Nobel Son, I'm left wanting more!
I thoroughly enjoyed this film, from beginning to end. The superb acting of Mary Steenburgen, Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, and Danny DeVito, was icing on the cake of an already fantastic movie. My adrenaline was pumping throughout the film with a great soundtrack by Paul Oakenfold. It's nice to go to the movies and see a truly independent film made with such a wide release, and such a great cast. Randall Miller, who co-wrote, and co-produced with Jody Savin and also directed and edited this film, did a wonderful job, and deserves great respect. Every scene was captivating and fun with <more>
Bryan Greenberg and Shawn Hatosy proving themselves in starring roles. While movies like Revolutionary Road, and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button are getting all the credit for such moving performances and so on, but this film deserves great recognition for the true genius of every second of this film. Truly the unsung hero, underdog, and most underrated film of the year. Don't miss out on any chance to see this film.
Darkly comedic psychological thriller which delights (by larry-411)
I attended the World Premiere of Nobel Son at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. That's Nobel as in Nobel Prize, and it takes the festival prize in my book. This winning film, from writer/director/producer/editor Randall Miller did he make lunch too? , is on my list of Top 10 Picks from among the 30 I saw at this year's festival.Professor Eli Michaelson Alan Rickman is about to win the Nobel Prize. His son Barkley Bryan Greenberg is a promising Ph.D. candidate wanting little to do with his father's pomposity. A scheme is hatched which is sure to pit father against son in a way <more>
to maximize their inherent rivalry. Let the madness and mayhem begin. In addition to Greenberg and Rickman, Nobel Son stars a troupe of talented veterans including Bill Pullman, Shawn Hatosy, Danny DeVito, Mary Steenburgen, Ted Danson, Ernie Hudson, and Eliza Dushku.It's always hard to single anyone out in such an amazing ensemble cast. Greenberg, the titular son, is a worthy protagonist. The roller coaster ride on which he is taken is chilling, yet his upper crust background and bravado veneer cannot hide his childlike innocence. It is that vulnerability which sucks us in and compels us to look even when we would rather look away.Shawn Hatosy is one of the most prolific and versatile young actors in the business, and he is frighteningly brilliant here. The intensity he brings to this role never lets up from start to finish. Nobody is better at psycho-scary. Many will be blown away by his performance. If he wasn't on your radar before he will be after you see Nobel Son.Alan Rickman provides most of the comic relief in a film that is much more dark than comedic. A lesser actor could have turned in an over-the-top performance which might have tipped the scales in favor of the lighter side of this film. That would have spoiled the intensity of the violent escapades these young men partake in. But he manages to play the buffoon as only a legend can.I was quite surprised by the look and feel of this film. It's much more stylized than one might expect. Digital effects and clever camera work help take what could have been a standard caper movie a la Oceans 11 and turn it into a psychological thriller, emphasis on the thrills. It is such a fascinating story and an amazing script, and kudos to Randall Miller for being able to create a work which defies categorization. Gasps and laughs are traded back and forth, yet it manages to toe the line between comedy and tragedy without losing its focus.If Kubrick inhaled nitrous oxide while making A Clockwork Orange, it might look something like Nobel Son. It will keep you on the edge of your seat, literally. Nobel Son is a breathtaking, refreshing escape from convention.
A roller coaster thriller that keeps you guessing (by jtharris-1)
I somehow managed to get a ticket to the premiere at Tribeca and it was worth the struggle. The film is a freight train that picks up speed and never stops going. Great performances from Alan Rickman, Mary Steenburgen, Bill Pullman, Danny DeVito, Shawn Hatosy, Bryan Greenberg and Eliza Dushku so hot! . Writers Miller and Savin have us constantly off balance and Miller's direction is reminiscent of early Guy Ritchie Lock Stock, Snatch . It's amazing that the same team that did the sweet and sensitive Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing & Charm School managed to pull off this <more>
wild breathless ride of a movie.Can't wait to see it in theaters again when it comes out.
Too good a movie for the critics to get (by walkerr-2)
I saw this movie with my husband he tolerates my Rickmania and part way through the movie he said, well as usual coming to a Rickman movie was worth the money. If you are tired of Hollywood formula want a few laughs and a movie you can't constantly predict this is your movie, I just hope it's still out there when you want to see it. We will probably be buying this on DVD when it becomes available. Unfortunately I don't think it will be nearly as fun to watch some of the scenes on a small screen.As usual Rickman and Devito and Pullman turn in very professional work and <more>
Steenburger is such a delight I kept wondering why don't we see more of her. The Savin's have found a nice group of actors to work with and are now with two good indie films under their belts this one and Bottle Shock they should be able to attract not just good actors to their films but hopefully financing.
A Mask, a Thumb and a Couple of Plans (by ferguson-6)
Greetings again from the darkness. "Bottle Shock" director Randall Miller is back ... only "Nobel Son" was filmed first you really have to love the Hollywood system . While "Bottle Shock" was a pretty straight forward re-telling of a wine industry break through, this film takes us on a dark ride with blazingly quick turns. It can be taken as a entertaining thriller/who-dunnit to who, or even as a psychological study on egotistical, domineering parents.Much of the "Bottle Shock" crew is back ... Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman and Eliza Dushka. Add Mary <more>
Steenburgen, Shawn Hatosy Outside Providence, The Cooler , Danny Devito and Ted Dansen, and you have an odd, but talented cast to deliver your odd, but entertaining film.Alan Rickman plays the role he seems born to play ... arrogant self-diagnosed genius. His family and co-workers somehow tolerate him despite his blindness to their own talents. This is especially problematic once Rickman becomes a Nobel Prize winner. Without giving anything away, his son, played by Bryan Greenberg Prime is kidnapped and held for the $2 million Nobel prize money ... by a guy with ties to Rickman's character. That is the simple part. After that, the script flies through its twists and turns creating quite a mess of fun! Bill Pullman is the detective on the case and he draws from his voice pattern as the odd realtor in "You Kill Me", all while pining for Steenburgen ... who is a brilliant forensic expert in her own right. Danny Devito takes an odd turn as the Reformed OCD gardener who has a couple of memorable scenes. Eliza Duska the bar owner in Bottle Shock is quite memorable as the stunningly dark poet who captures Nobel Son's heart the evening before he is nabbed. Coincidence??? What I find most interesting about the script is that it could have focused on any number of story lines. Steenburgen, Rickman and Dushka all have characters that could be developed further. But it really works here to have the division and balance.My only warning here is to be prepared for a Guy Ritchie-type experience. There are times of rapid-fire edits and crazy techno-mod music that will challenge your ability to follow along and keep up. I believe it just adds to the fun in this case.
Somehow I expected this to be a bit of a long shot and wasn't anticipating much. However this was way off. With some great acting Alan Rickman as the Nobel Prize winner and each of the other main characters. A real gem which I am having trouble with describing, without giving anything away. The story revolves around the son of the prize winner and his kidnapping which has been cleverly planned. The events take some unexpected twists and turns and ends with a bang or a pop. A great film throughout and a brilliant ending with some super actors. Watch this if you get a chance as its one of <more>
This film has some plot trick that seem hardly understandable to some. The only one problem is that how could the crazy son predict, that the father will win a Nobel prize, or how could he plot the kidnapping which is a good plot within the interval between naming the Nobel laureate and actually presenting the prize. OK, he was spying on the family for long time, and the single molecular spectroscopy was a Nobel-worth idea, bu no one can ever guess, when such a work gets the actual prize if it gets at all .All the other strange things, like the suffering wife who does not actually seem <more>
suffering beside her husband, until their son is kidnapped, these egoistic guys can be very magnetic in their ways , the changing of the less crazy son while being kidnapped the more crazy son manages to turn him against the already not much liked father by showing some convincing and less convincing proofs of the father's evilness by the way, the handwritings are the less convincing facts, they can easily be made up , the lack of make up after the kidnapping realistic , or the evil son"s killing the neighbour 1. convincing the police, that the neighbour was the kidnapper, 2. if this does not come in, convincing the police that the less crazy son was his own kidnapper + getting the place above the garage, which is the first step for getting his place in his father's heart and wiping the other son out of it totally , etc. can be easily followed, if wanted. It seems that there were mostly two kinds of reviewers, those who liked the music and wanted to understand, and those, who didn't. Anyway, for having such extreme opinions, it must be a fairly good film.It is clear, that the writers don't understand much in chemistry in university professor level, no one would be so satisfied with a used car dealer, who knows, what size the molecules are, that they would invite him to their lab , but the plot and the filming is disturbing enough to be worth watching. The ending is not well developed, it is true.The reference to cannibalism is beautiful, it is true, that such a man all kinds of genies, and this professor was a kind of genius, even is not in single molecule spectroscopy can "eat" his family alive, and at the end he is eaten alive by his suppressed son, when the reference returns.
