June 25, 2015 – The Edinburgh International Film Festival invited the Empire Podcast team back for the second year in a row, and this is the result: over two hours of silly questions, silly answers, movie news and reviews, featuring not one, not two, but three interviews. We spoil you, we know. Rob speaks up at about 36:20
Director: David Blair; Screenwriter: Andrew Kirk; Starring: Robert Sheehan, Joely Richardson, Lily Cole; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 15
It’s no surprise to discover that The Messenger’s director David Blair also helmed several episodes of the wonderful 1990s BBC One drama The Lakes. He has a wonderful knack for imbuing nature and buildings with an ethereal quality that entrances our eyes and establishes a foreboding atmosphere, as is evident in his latest film.
The unsettling tale follows Robert Sheehan’s troubled soul Jack, a young man burdened by all the dead people that talk to him. “I don’t want to help people, I want to get rid of them,” he bemoans at one stage. But can he use what he learns to figure out the grizzly demise of someone connected to him? Or will the police, concerned by his bizarre behaviour, deal with him first?
A fascinating lead turn from the former Misfits star combines with often breathtaking direction to largely keep our interests from waning in the film’s central plot, which unravels in a manner that alternates between alienating and intriguing. It’s only in the powerful final act that a strong emotional payoff rewards your patience, with Sheehan’s performance bypassing some overly melodramatic elements that would feel better placed in a soap opera.
Only a partially successful venture due to a script lacking invention and narrative hooks, The Messenger is nonetheless a showcase for homegrown talent and particularly Robert Sheehan.
The Messenger adopts a far more naturalistic approach than the seemingly similarly ‘I see dead people’ themed The Sixth Sense. There’s no Bruce Willis moping around in a dodgy syrup for a start. Indeed, several stunning shots of Jack, enmeshed within thick blades of grass amidst the sand dunes, will linger long in the memory.
Only a partially successful venture due to a script lacking invention and narrative hooks, The Messenger is nonetheless a showcase for homegrown talent and particularly Robert Sheehan. The movie’s distinctively British feel is also a soothing antidote to all the generic horror mystery fodder that comes from across the pond.
