The Woodsman Reviews:

The last movie that unsettled me much like "The Woodsman" did was Todd Solondz's magnificent and exceedingly black comedy, "Happiness" (1998), which dealt with related themes. But unlike Solondz, who never seems to like any of his characters, screenwriters Nicole Kassell and Steven Fechter appear to genuinely care about the folks they create.Their story's really very simple: Walter (Kevin Bacon) gets out of prison after serving a dozen years for molesting young girls. He takes a job at a Philadelphia-area lumber mill and tries to receive his life back together again, while dealing with his inner demons.What's likely to disturb many about "The Woodsman" is that Kassell and Fechter raise the intriguing question of whether someone who's done something despicable is not only capable of putting his life back together again after serving his time, but also whether society ought to let him to do so. And to create our job even tougher, Kassell and Fechter don't turn Walter into a monster."The Woodsman" is aided immensely by a strong, compelling performance by Bacon. It's easy his greatest work, a role that requires him to underplay his character. Director Kassell isn't shy about letting the camera linger on Bacon's face and Bacon credibly brings to life Walter's suffering. It's a sensationally nice performance. Bacon gives him depth and feeling and we suddenly search ourselves caring about this reprehensible man.There are some magnificent helping performances, including Mos Def as a cop, David Alan Grier as Walter's boss and Benjamin Bratt proving he really can act if he's given a nice role. The most interesting helping hero is Vickie, a coworker willing to give Walter a second possibility at life. Kyra Sedgwick, a gifted, yet under-rated, actress, is utterly convincing as Vickie, a girl almost as damaged as Walter is. The Walter-Vickie relationship works because there's terrific chemistry between Bacon and Sedgwick. True, they're husband and wife, but real-life couples can fail miserably on screen. Kidman and Cruise in "Far and Away" (1992), anyone?Bacon and Sedgwick's scenes are tender, passionate and real. Though, there's one intimate moment between Walter and Vickie that's clearly inspired by the popular Donald Sutherland-Julie Christie love stage in Nicolas Roeg's "Don't Look Now" (1973).What makes "The Woodsman" such gripping viewing is that the movie doesn't shy away from letting us into Walter's struggle. There's a particularly uncomfortable stage on a park bench as Walter comes to terms with his real nature."The Woodsman" is a movie that deserves to be seen. It's a pity that less-than-mediocre movies, such as "Connie and Carla" and "Twisted," receive widely released, while a gem like "The Woodsman" gets to very several theaters. Seek out this film. It's not an simple movie to watch, but the performances are all good, the story's riveting and it's definitely one of the best, most thought-provoking movies of the year.


The journeyman actor Kevin Bacon blows most of the actual Oscar Greatest Actor tournament out of the water with his searing portrayal of a paroled pedophile in The Woodsman. The hard topics matter may spell box-office suicide for this film, particularly at Christmas time. However, if Newmarket Movies is smart, they will store this the same method Creature was promoted for Charlize Theron's performance. Bacon employs a minimalist acting style and submerges himself into this complex character, on the strength of his physicality alone. Thin and gaunt, hair darkened, eyes dead, and jaw severely set, Bacon doesn't waste a facial muscle or telegraph anything more than necessary. He allows us to receive into the character's head piece by piece, and it's not everytime a pleasant zone to be. Bacon is uncompromising in his refusal to create anything about the hero trivial and sentimental, and that is the key to his success in making Walter such a vivid, believable man. The screenplay seems to almost be stripped bare, with tiny now revealed through dialogue. However, monologues are used to nice effect. Bacon's mesmerizing performance is enhanced by astute direction from first-timer Nicole Kassell, who also adapted the screenplay with the original playwright, Steven Fechter. The cast is superb-Benjamin Bratt, Kyra Sedgwick, David Alan Grier, the pretty Eve, and greatest of all, Mos Def, who steals virtually each stage he is in vs Bacon, no tiny task. for those celebrity-watchers, Madonna's baby's daddy, Carlos Leon (father of Lourdes) is in a several scenes.This is a must-see for Bacon's work, and for the tasteful, clever method the topics matter is handled. In short, Tough material, nice solid film.


An clever and thought-provoking movie that never flinches from it's topics matter, and contains a magnificent performance from it's leading man. Kassell's movie manages to steer clear of didacticism and lays the misunderstandings and prejudices about, and ignorance of, paedophilia launch for the audience to interpret in their own way. The protagonist is neither a sympathetic character or a villain, but during the course of the movie he wavers between the two leaving the audience both supportive and sickened. This amalgam of conflicting emotions makes 'The Woodsman' essential viewing for a rational, adult audience. I only wonder how an audience would react to a paedophile played by an unknown actor without Bacon's profile, as I suspect many folks would search it harder to agree without his charisma or celebrity attached to the film.
