Patrice Leconte's "Monsieur Hire" is a tragedy about loneliness and erotomania, told about two solitary people who have nothing else in common. When I began as a film critic, Jean-Luc Godard was widely thought to have reinvented the cinema with "Breathless" (1960). An interview with Phil Hopkins, founder of the Blu-ray restoration label The Film Detective. Clint Eastwood's "Changeling" made me feel sympathy, and then anger, and then back around again. Changeling is a 2008 released drama mystery movie directed by Clint Eastwood and written by J. Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Director Clint Eastwood and his wife Dina Eastwood arrive for the 'Changeling' at the Palais des Festivals during the 61st International Cannes Film Festival on May 20, 2008 in Cannes, France. It is the factual account of a mother whose little boy disappeared, and of a corrupt Los Angeles Police Department running wild.

Angelina Jolie stars as Christine Collins, whose 9-year-old son, Walter, went missing in March 1928. The police, under fire for lawlessness and corruption, had positioned the case as an example of their good work.

This movie is about a misery stricken mother undertakes the LAPD to her own particular impairment when it unyieldingly tries to pass off a clear impostor as her missing child, while likewise declining to surrender trust that she will discover him one day. Due to the amazing story-line film scored 7.8 imdb rating while grossed ?4,693,773 at box-office.
Even though the returned boy was three inches shorter than Walter, was not recognized by his teacher and classmates, and had dental records that did not match, Collins was informed that she was crazy and locked up in a psychiatric ward on the strength of a captain's signature.If her "rediscovered son" was a poster boy for the cops, her disappearance became the cause of an early radio preacher named the Rev.
Meanwhile, a determined detective named Lester Ybarra (Michael Kelly) was led to the buried bodies of 20 young boys on an isolated chicken ranch outside Winesville, Calif.Eastwood's telling of this story isn't structured as a thriller, but as an uncoiling of outrage. It is clear that the leaders of the LAPD serve and protect one thing: its own tarnished reputation.
This is all, as the film observes, based on a true story.Eastwood is one of the finest directors now at work.
But most of his greatest films as a director have come after "retirement age." Some directors start young and get tired. Eastwood is only gathering steam."Changeling" displays the directness and economy of his mentor, Don Siegel.
This is the story of an administration that directed from the top down to lie, cheat, torture, extract false confessions and serve to protect its image. In a way, it is prophetic.The Los Angeles Police Department, perhaps in part because it is unlucky enough to exist in Los Angeles, has often had a dark image in recent movies. Confidential," "Training Day," "Lakeview Terrace." Lots of movies involve corrupt cops, but no city's police department has been as dramatically portrayed. Dirty Harry, for all his problems, might have admired this movie.Jolie, Malkovich and Geoff Pierson, as a lawyer who takes Collins' case before the Police Board, are very good at what they do very well.

The film's most riveting performance is by Jason Butler Harner as the murderous Gordon Northcott. Harner's mesmerizing performance brings him to sinister life as a self-pitying weasel specializing in smarmy phony charm.
Michael Straczynski follows the factual outlines of the story while condensing, dramatizing and inventing. A man like Northcott can never be explained, but much of his oddness may have emerged from his childhood. Northcott comes over in Harner's portrayal as a man like John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer: irretrievably evil, inexplicable, unreachable from the sane world. Profoundly creepy is more like it.Jolie plays Christine Collins without unnecessary angles or quirks. She is a supervisor at the telephone company, she loves her son, they live in a nice bungalow, all is well.
But as weeks turn into months, and after the phony "son" is produced, her anger and resolution swells up until it brings the whole LAPD fabrication crashing down. Malkovich as the minister is refreshing: He's not a sanctimonious grandstander who gets instructions directly from God, but a crusading activist.
