Scott Glenn leads the effort, as a killer that got away. The kid of the cop who failed to collar him for the deaths of 17 young women decides to push harder to bring this guy to justice. But, Scott Glenn is older and slower now. He’s friends with everyone in his new town. Hell, the Chief of Police digs the guy.
The cat-and-mouse angle of the film isn’t as strong as the character study. Whether it’s Stephen Tobolowsky, Scott Glenn, Chris Coy or Thomas Calabro; each actor brings their A-game to a film that I feel not enough people are going to see. Adult dramas about big ticket subject matter still can’t grasp an audience’s attention without set pieces. Obsession doesn’t get tackled enough in modern cinema, but there’s something about “The Barber” that scratched every itch for me.
This is looking to be the year that Scott Glenn stages a minor comeback and I welcome it. Scott Glenn forces a challenge to identity and what it means to hunt a killer. He never flinches and he delivers an intensity only matched by Gyllenhaal in “Nightcrawler”. I review tons of indie production that just float on the edges of mainstream viewing and I’d love to see this pushed onto the readership radar.
