    Lightbulb Review: Arlington Road

    Arlington Road (1999)


    Jeff Bridges
    Tim Robbins
    Joan Cusack
    Hope Davis
    Robert Gossett

    Arlington Road follows in the grand tradition of Hollywood suspense thrillers that pit a lone man against a vast, hidden conspiracy--or is it a conspiracy? Jeff Bridges plays Michael Faraday, who starts out as a loving, caring father and teacher but slowly turns into a desperate, crazed man searching for answers in a suburban world that has been turned upside down.

    Director Mark Pellington lingers on Bridges's face as it goes from ruggedly handsome and somber to wild and crazed. As Faraday tries to uncover the truth about his new neighbors, Oliver and Cheryl Lang (Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack), he also struggles with his own inner demons. Is he just imagining things, as he still has not gotten over his wife's death at the hands of what was first believed to be a terrorist, or are his fear and paranoia real? Pellington stays a few steps ahead the entire way, leading to a most thrilling and unexpected conclusion to this nightmare of suburban terror.

    One of the most surprise endings I've seen.
    right up there with usual suspects and fight club
    slightly below sixth sense and Planet of the apes.

    Yes, farce. One of the not so popular movies with a very good story and surprise factor.

    BTW, when you name surprise endings and absolutely unguessable - What about SE7EN? I have compiled a review on SE7EN a long time ago. Here:

    p/s: dont reply to that thread(dont bump it)

    Tim Robbins is one of most favourite actors.

    Hmm.. Dont expect a shocker of an ending in Arlington Road. But the story is very good and gripping. I really liked the movie and Hats off to Tim Robbin's acting once again.
