A young man, paroled under house arrest, is forced to reconnect with his estranged father while coming to terms with an unspeakable trespass. An injured Iraq war veteran embarks on a blind journey of vengeance against those he deems responsible for his brothers death. As the two stories intertwine and collide, both men fight to reconcile their past, present, and ultimately, the meaning of their lives. Through the powerful use of visual narrative, a diverse musical score, and truly touching performances by an all New York cast, JailCity brings together disparate lives in a distinctive urban setting, struggling with universal themes of tragedy, redemption, love, and the futility of revenge.
This is a great movie with some amazing acting from a cast of relatively unknown actors. It has a very authentic feel to it, and no part of the story seems forced. The director doesn't use any of the cheap tricks that I'm sick of seeing in these kinds of movies. There is clever humor in just the right places but it doesn't distract from the dramatic plot line. The story is not new, but the writer/director manages to stay away from Hollywood clichés. Jailcity demands the viewer's attention by including subtle sub-plots which put the story-telling on another level. I saw this movie at a movie festival and was pleasantly surprised. I don't know if its released but it's definitely worth watching.
I enjoyed this film, and think that the film maker has a bright future. My scale is a sliding one, based on many factors. For instance, the original Dawn of the Dead was a 10 out of 10 for zombie gross-out flicks; Alien rates a 10 out of 10 for sci-fi horror. Braveheart is a ten in all categories. It is not a scientific rating system, but it works for me.
When viewing low budget indy films, if it's something that my wife and I see when flipping through the IFC or Sundance Channels, and we actually watch the whole thing, then it rates highly. Jailcity is just such a movie. It grabbed our attention, and held it; we cared about the main characters, feeling some of their pain. Finally, the film surprised us.
Most movies are disappointing. We all have our biases, and what some enjoy, others will not. I do think that if you remember what it is, a first effort by a hungry young director with no money, you will be impressed.
