A visionary film unafraid to take chances

Violet & Daisy is a bold and compelling new film written and directed by the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Precious, Geoffrey Fletcher. The film is violent and funny but also has an emotional core that is unflinchingly true. The heroines of the film are wonderfully played by Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel. Ronan brings her amazing skills as an actress and creates one of her most original and fully realized roles in the part of Daisy. Bledel brings her signature sense of humor but also unleashes her vicious side in a way that no one has ever seen before. The chemistry between the two stars is undeniable and from the first frame we are rooting for these two lost girls and their friendship. That Fletcher not only cast these two actors but also made us fall in love with them is a testament not only to the script but his skills as a director.

The dialogue in the film is witty, whimsical and complex, reminiscent of the banter from classics of the Hollywood Golden Age such as His Girl Friday combined with the existential questioning of a Godard film. The movie is packed with twists and turns, jokes and pathos and I know that I did not get everything on the first viewing. The film is visually stunning with intricately structured shots, long takes and juxtapositions, but every shot serves the film and creates a satisfying whole. Anyone paying attention will see that Fletcher possesses a new voice that is not afraid to take chances and those who watch and listen carefully will be rewarded with a movie experience that will go far beyond an initial viewing.

You don't name pigs on a sausage farm

Imagine if you will a universe where Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are paid hitmen working for Danny Trejo in another cameo role. Violet (Alexis Bledel) and Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) are downright enjoyable in this quirky dark comedy. This is a genius indie designed to give you a Merrillee Rush. Violet and Daisy come across an easy hit (James Gandolfini) which causes them to examine their lives...one where they met as doll surgeons and life is about a Barbara Sunday designer dress.

Some lines from the film:

About the number one killer: "He once killed 3 ninjas with a fingernail file." Violet theology: "Heaven is a place...where everything is free or at least wholesale." And "Everything is a test when you are a career woman."

Excellent musical score using classical rock tunes to give them new meaning.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Written by Geoffrey Fletcher, the first African-American to win an Oscar for best adapted screenplay - "Precious."

Sigh...

I was looking forward to this movie, but c'mon... when Alexis Biedel's character is breezily sauntering around looking for bullets, and runs into the other gang of assassins who were hired to do the same job, she doesn't think to warn her partner who is back at the apartment alone - with no bullets? The story line just made a big deal about her last partner being killed, but... "No, I'm a Gilmore girl -- it won't happen today.". Then it gets even more stupid, when after offing the other assassin crew in James Gandolfini's apartment, and someone knocks on the door, they're sitting there all freaked out because they again "have no bullets left" -- yet there's what, five dead assassins on the floor at their feet -- they've got lots of bullets -- and guns to put them in (in case they don't match the girl's weapons)! But, "Oh no, we only know how to shoot our own guns... we WILL only shoot our own guns, even if it means certain death!". WTF!!! Had to turn it off then, can only handle so much stupid in my lifetime. And just to be clear, the problem(s) with this film for me, wasn't with the actual acting or actors, but the script, the intent, the actors had to work with. It was such a great collection of talent -- all pretty much wasted here in my opinion.
