FANTASTIC!

Sometimes when you take a chance on a movie with almost zero reviews it pays off in a big way! That's how I feel about Crown and Anchor. The trials and tribulations of this dysfunctional family had my full attention from the get go. Pop shows up near the end and what a flippn' winner this man is. No car chases, sexy women & shoot em ups throughout, rather a gripping experience into the lives and the ramifications of rough people with bad behavior. If you like thriller-suspense-dramas, you'll probably really enjoy this movie.

My Review Of "Crown And Anchor"

I have to admit, for a directorial debut Andrew Rowe sure meets his calling heading. "Crown And Anchor" rests somewhere between "Training Day" and "In Bruges". The attitude and pace of the film is more classic British thriller, but the incorporating of a dark and dingy cop in crisis hits more to the film styles this side of the pond. Appreciate considering the film is based from the point-of-view of a New Foundland native. The story stays really traditional with familiar tropes, recognizable characters and mixed with steeley, tense angst. Even though the originality suffers a bit, the characters and situational drama is captivating and at times rife with dark humor. The acting is stellar and the build to a moment when these two tragic characters clash is compelling. The suspense and intensity starts almost immediately in "Crown And Anchor". It gets stated in the beginning that some things have happened, we enter in the midst of the worsening chaos and things are only gonna get worse. Moments of botched criminal activity, interactions with unsavory characters, and a bit of blood and bandages bring in the thriller elements. The film could have easily been edited down about 20 minutes and still killed it, but overall "Crown And Anchor" is worth the watch.

You can't go home

The film opens with James - a police officer - brutalizing a domestic violence suspect. The death of his mother soon brings him back to Newfoundland where he must confront the cycles of addiction, violence and abuse that he thought he escaped. The punk music of the straight edge movement inspires James throughout the film. This insightful interview breaks down the bands used in the film and the reasons why they tie into each character's personality. There's plenty of talent here too, like Robert Joy (Jim of Desperately Seeking Susan) and Stephen McHattie, who was Hollis Mason in Watchmen and the narrator of BASEketball. Crown and Anchor is all about how you may never be able to go home again, but you can also never really escape it.
