Starring: Robert Duvall, Bill Murray
All those mid-west films in the late noughties... What was that about? Narry B remembers well his time spent in the Mid-West of America planting and reaping corn. Even now, people remember him as the corniest man in the tri-county area.
Get Low is a personal and warming drama. The tension builds up nicely as Robert Duvall plans his own funeral. In fact, it's Duvall's performance, and Murray's charisma, that drives this film.
A nice setting, great acting, and a good script. The final payoff was surprisingly weak, and the constant gnawing sounds of background music was grating. But Get Low was a fine film... "mighty fine".
