VIEWS ON FILM review of Wilson

In 2017's Wilson (my latest review), Wilson the persona isn't played by a volleyball this time around. It's played by a multi-layered, Woody Harrelson who is in nearly every frame.

So yeah, Wilson starts off as rather galling and virtually unwatchable in its first twenty minutes. Then the film sneaks up on you, frothing in its effective inquiry of a man who aches for any human connection.

Wilson has Washington-born director Craig Johnson making something along the lines of About Schmidt meets As Good as It Gets (minus any trace of Jack Nicholson). It's small scale and small town, a character study that's easily a slight triumph for Johnson.

The majority of Wilson is offensively dry, genuinely coarse, and sadly heartbreaking. I liked how the troupe members looked and acted as if they were related in real life. I also enjoyed Wilson's soft, musical score which seemed to come in at all the right moments.

Johnson plots his film as an enclosed journey, where Harrelson's Wilson uncomfortably interacts with strangers and distanced acquaintances over various periods of time (three years gone by to present day to subsequently seventeen years). The whole premise at ninety-four minutes, works as almost every dialogue-driven scene feels bona fide, piteous, and true.

Wilson's story involves well, Wilson (Harrelson, whose dramatis personae has no last name). He's a social inept man, a pseudo-lonely man, and a thoroughly jobless man. As Wilson, Woody Harrelson hams it up in almost every clip. With receding hairline, some black rim glasses, and medium stubble, it's a role that's kinda perfect for him. Harrelson's Wilson is like a friendlier Frank Gallagher type and a poorer Melvin Udall type all rolled up into one. You could even throw in Woody's own sad sack Roy Munson for straight measure.

Throughout the flick, Wilson tracks down his estranged wife (Pippi played by Laura Dern) and his estranged, adopted daughter (little-known Isabella Amara as Claire). Eventually, he forms a solid reunion between the three before going to jail for kidnapping said daughter (spoiler).

In conclusion, I'm gonna include Wilson as an honorable mention for my top ten movie picks of 2017. With its mayberry Minnesota locales, its good casting, and its plethora of sweet and wounding moments, Wilson could be classified as a minor winner. Rating: 3 stars.

Almost had it there...

At first this movies lifts one's expectations. It could have been a great portrait of a straight talking slightly bewildered man (Harrelson is quite good). Then that focus is lost. But replaced with another dynamic that quickly grabs the attention - the story wanders unexpectedly, but in a good way. The middle part I watched mostly to see where the makers can take this story. And every turn was well within the logic of the story, well within the foundations laid down at the start for the characters and the spaces they move in. Then it suddenly becomes silly and sentimental. And ends. Did they run out of time and decide to quickly end this little money spinner? Did they grow bored? Pity. It could have been a much better movie. As it is there are much better ones to watch today.

Excellent story

I started watching this as the storyline was curious. The main character was amazing. One day it might one of us pondering to connect with the fellow human being. It made me laugh and portrayed the reality of life. My eyes ended up in tears when Wilson was able to connect with few souls. Characterizations were beautiful.
