Disgrace DVD Review

Disgrace DVD Review

Synopsis: In a landmark performance, Oscar nominee John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, 1993) stars as Professor David Lurie, whose world is shattered when he is fired for seducing a college student. He finds peace at his estranged daughter's modest farm in South Africa until a horrific incident of terror and violence forces Lurie to confront his beliefs and the disturbing racial complexities of the new South Africa. Based on the Booker Prize-winning novel, DISGRACE stands out as a gritty, gripping drama of brutality, survival and hope.

Review: John Malkovich is one of our favorite actors.  We don't see all of his films, because he's not always the best at picking a script, but when he is matched-up well he can do amazing things.  Anything from Con Air to the Man in the Iron Mask, he comes off intense and rather creepy, while also educated and distinguished.  It gives him a sense of credibility.

Disgrace is based on a novel by J. M. Coetzee.   Its not your typical hollywood film.  Malkovich is outcast for seducing a female student at the university where he works and retreats to a farm in South Africa, only to become witness to the horrors of culture there, particularly the sexual ones.   The film is moving and throught provoking.  Its everything that an indie film should be.

If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, this film is for you.  Be warned, the content is very heavy and we don't recommend this one for children.  Disgrace is definately one we'll be adding to our library, we recommend this DVD.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
