Watch The Border - Alternative Versions.
Jack Nicholson's transition from brilliant character actor to self-parodic
superstar happened sometime in the 1980s. 'The Border' is closer to his best
1970s work ('Five Easy Pieces', 'The Last Detail', 'The King Of Marvin
Gardens', 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest') than to most of his subsequent
output. Two of his best performances in recent years have been in movies
directed by Sean Penn ('The Crossing Guard' and 'The Pledge'), and 'The
Border' reminds me a lot of those. I wonder if Penn is a fan? The director
Tony Richardson made his name with British "kitchen sink" dramas and he
brings to this Peckinpah-esque material an empathy for "little people"
rarely seen in American movies of the 1980s and '90s. Nicholson gives a
superb performance, one of his very best. The two women in his life are
played by Valerie Perrine and Elpidia Carrillo. The former is best
remembered for her appearance in 'Superman' but has acting chops she has
rarely been asked to use (see also 'Lenny' alongside Dustin Hoffman). The
latter is best known for appearing in the Arnie action classic 'Predator'.
Both of them are surprisingly good in this movie. Harvey Keitel is even
better. This is one of his "lost" movies - see also 'Fingers', 'Deathwatch'
and 'Copkiller' - and seeing him act alongside Nicholson is a real treat.
Add to that one of the final roles by the legendary Warren Oates, who had
co-starred with Nicholson fifteen years earlier in Monte Hellman's cult
western 'The Shooting', and 'The Border' is essential viewing for film
buffs. I think the movie has a few flaws but they are easily overlooked, and
repeated viewings reveal its true worth. 'The Border' is a real sleeper, and
recommended to fans of intelligent, character based drama.
