HOME FROM THE HILL

HOME FROM THE HILL REVIEWED

“Home from the Hill” is a Robert Mitchum film. Well, it’s Minnelli directing Mitchum to his strengths. Mitchum is a Texan land baron with two sons. One’s a bastard (for reals) and the other is Pap-Pap’s favorite boy. Naturally, Mitchum drinks like a fish in this movie and has to overcome machismo to love both of his kids. All the while, George Hamilton smiles and convinces me in every scene that he’s a Highlander. George Peppard also shows up in the film without Breakfast at Tiffany’s or B.A. Baracus.

Vincente Minnelli is one of my favorite classic directors. The guy had a work ethic that would make Soderbergh look like a slacker. Still, I wish that he stuck to his strengths a lot more. While the film isn’t bad, it feels like a story that George Stevens would have turned down. If you ever wanted to see what Ordinary People would look like in There Will Be Blood territory, then this one is for you. Everyone else will passively ignore the family dramas of yesteryear in favor of a Star War.

I’ve talked too long, as I’m now starting to sound like Lucille Bluth.
