Misery Was Directed By Rob Reiner Right In

the middle of his prime where he was just making hit after hit after hit it stars James Caan and Kathy Bates and was adapted from Stephen King’s book Misery Stephen King himself has listed this as one of his top favorite movies that was ever adapted from his films and with good reason. This movie is suspense-filled from the very opening shot. You get this really great close-up of a cigarette and a match and those two things are very integral to the beginning and the end of the film. In this opening we see Paul Sheldon’s played by James Caan, who is a very famous romance novelist. He has a very popular series of books based off of this character named Misery and he also has a lot of fans.

Some Of Them Are Pretty Great And Some

of them. Kathy Bates an obsessed murderer how unfortunate for Paul Sheldon that after completing his newest novel, he wipes out on the road and is rescued by Annie Wilkes, his number one fan, a nurse wow that’s great not really she’s kind of a psychopath. At first, you think wow This is like the sweetest woman on the planet, but her obsession with Paul Sheldon has grown so deep that she views his books as almost real, and when she finds out that in the newest misery novel, he decided to kill the lead character Misery. She goes insane and makes his life a living hell. She keeps him trapped.

She Keeps Him Sick And This Is

where Kathy Bates Oscar-winning role really shines because she can go from the sweetest woman on Earth to a horrific psychopath like that and a lot of it has to do with some really. Writing by William Goldman, who also wrote Rob Reiner Zuv Princess Bride as well as Reiner X’ excellent Hitchcockian level direction. This is a suspenseful movie as I said from the opening shot just the first sequence where We’re introduced to Paul pounding away on his typewriter is suspenseful and a lot of it is the editing The editing in this film is pristine. The shots are specifically designed to ring any bit of tension out of the moment they can his use of close-ups Alley‘s and some truly horrific wives is masterful. Rob Reiner did a fantastic job with this movie and like I said.

This Was In The Middle Of

Rhinos Prime he was pumping movies out like stand by me another really good Stephen King adaptation The Princess Bride When Harry Met Sally misery. He went through a great period of hips, and this one might be my favorite of his the great Richard Farnsworth plays the local sheriff who was an amazing actor. I missed that guy every time. I see him in a movie and he embodies his character so well. He has such a funny relationship with his wife, who also is his deputy.

Theres Moments In The Car Between The

two of them where she touches his leg and he’s like hey nope when you’re in this car. You’re my deputy Ain’t, my wife, the sheriff and the deputy are integral to the plot because they’re investigating the disappearance of Paul. They’re trying to figure out where he could possibly be. But they also provide a lot of levity in the film because they’re quite funny and it’s a nice breather because sometimes this movie can just get to 110 percent. level of intensity and suspense and you need those few moments of comedy and this movie definitely provides them There’s a fantastic bit where James Caan is just he’s had enough.

She Is At The Point Where She

is now forcing him to write a new book in which the character misery is resurrected. He has no choice but to do this because she’s keeping him there. She’s drugging him his legs are broke to blumin and he starts pounding away in the typewriter and we cut to this and you see that he’s typing that and it’s just great let’s talk about Kathy Bates I mentioned she wanted an Oscar for this movie and she did which interestingly fun fact. This is the only Stephen King movie to have won an Oscar not Shawshank not stand by me. Kathy Bates and misery that’s pretty impressive and kind.

Kind Of Crazy Actually Because Theres Some

pretty damn good Stephen King films out there She deserves it. This is a role that could easily have gone into B movie territory. If the wrong actress was cast, so they made an excellent choice in giving Kathy Bates this role. This isn’t the only time she’s been in a Stephen King adaptation. She was also in Dolores Claiborne.

Now Were Going To Get Into Some Spoilers

here if you’ve never in misery and I hope that you have because it’s an excellent film and pretty much anybody who loves movies should check it out at some point, but we’re going to get into the scene that everyone knows as the hobbling scene easily the most infamous scene in the film where Annie Wilkes begun to realize that Paul’s going to be well enough to walk soon, and she decides to make. sure that that’s not going to happen? She takes a sledge hammer and a wooden block and breaks both of his ankles. It’s gruesome horrific disturbing and everything that a horror film fan should enjoy watching and it’s it’s great. This movie is so psychologically disturbing and there’s something painfully real about it. Even though it’s it’s kind of over the top and Annie Wilkes as a character is super religious she has a cross.

She Always Is Saying Things Like

Gee, Golly Wilikers and oh my goodness and cockadoodie and like she refuses to curse. When she reads Paul Sheldon’s new novel that he’s thinking of publishing she’s like this is terrible. There’s too many swear words in it and he’s like it’s about slum kids. I was a slum kid. We all swear and she’s like no No I don’t swear and she gets really mad all of a sudden foreshadowing the insanity beneath that character and my God.

I Mean Im Talking A Lot About

Kathy Bates because she deserves it. This is an iconic performance but not to be overlooked is the equally great James Caan. I have a lot of respect for him for taking this role for one specific reason alone beyond the fact that he is damn good in this movie. Many actors turn it down, including people like Mel Gibson, Robert, De Niro, Michael Douglas, Robert, Redford, Morgan, Freeman, Dustin Hoffman, Harrison, Ford, Al Pacino and some have speculated that that’s because the character of Annie Wilkes overshadows the character of Paul. She’s so big and larger-than-life and a lot of actors didn’t want to take that role because.

Be The One Everyone Noticed Which Its

true she got an OScar win out of it and James can walk away with nothing I respect Khan a lot for taking this part. This is a ballsy role. You have to be in bed for almost the entire movie and we are not in bed. You’re in a wheelchair and you had to pull off a very difficult thing for an actor to do and that is to act act because in the film he essentially has to pretend to be someone else to placate Annie Wilkes his character. He has to pretend that he is starting to fall in love with her well.

In Reality Hes Not.

He’s trying to figure out every second how we can get out of the situation that’s really hard for an actor to do because you have to be yourself the character while also. Pretending to be someone else, you’re pretending and pretending and James Caan is so good in the Stone. The score by Marc Shaiman also should not be overlooked.

Its Highly Tense And Adds Quite A

bit to every single moment. As the film builds to the finale when We’re dollying in on Paul Sheldon holding that paper he’s about to light it on fire and you see the horror in Annie Wilson face it is one of the most enthralling cathartic moments. I’ve seen in a thriller the following sequence, where he beats her over the head with a typewriter is also blumin fantastic because she was forcing him to write a book that he didn’t want to write, which obviously is a very horrible thing to do as well as the physical torture and mental torture, and he uses that instrument that she was torturing him with. with to beat her over the head.

Its So Great And That Stephen

King he is amazing at revenge, but it’s not even the physical part of their confrontation that was so satisfying when we’re dollying towards him and we see that reaction in her face where she realizes that for the first time in the entire movie. He has the upper hand on her and she’s going to have to do something about it. It’s so great you just feel you just feel the goosebumps all over your body as you’re witnessing this character finally get what we have wanted him to have for the whole movie. Freedom Misery is one of my favorite Stephen King movies.

Its One Of The Best Thrillers Ever Made,
