The Reviews for Digging for Fire (2015) 720p


improvisational indieReviewed bySnoopyStyleVote: 6/10

Tim (Jake Johnson), his wife Lee (Rosemarie DeWitt) and son spend some time in her client's hillside home. Tim finds a gun in the yard but the cops are uninterested. Lee and her son visit her parents while Tim is suppose to finish his work. Instead of work, his friends Phil (Mike Birbiglia), Ray (Sam Rockwell) and others come to hang out. The guys start digging up where Tim found the gun and they find a bone. They are joined by others to do drugs. Tim and Max (Brie Larson) find a shoe and they continue the dig the next day finding even more bones. Ben (Orlando Bloom) rescues Lee from a drunk at a bar.

Director Joe Swanberg continues to make his improvisational indies. The idea of digging and discovery does infuse the movie with an obsessive quality. It works well to keep the intensity up. It does mean that Lee has the lesser half of the movie. In fact, the movie would work better pointing the focus at Tim. There are lots of ways the dig could go. The cops could actually come. The owner could come home early. However Swanberg seems more interested in the couple's relationship.

There is a striking moment in "Digging for Fire" when Tim (JakeJohnson) is having pizza on his bed alone, isolated from his friends,while marvelling at a shoe he unearthed from the woods. This scene issubtly moving as we begin to understand what he's trying to look forand why.

This is Joe Swanberg's most emotionally mature and thematically richentry to date. His films pull off a great feat by being dialogue-driven yet having the dialogue be almost entirely improvised. Thepremise of this quiet relationship study is simple, Tim and Lee, acouple who have been married for a while and have a kid together startto feel as if they have lost their individual self in this process, aweekend apart unexpectedly helps them regain perspective.

At the beginning of the film, Tim finds a gun and a bone in the woodsbehind the house. He takes advantage of the weekend alone to have hissingle, drugged up friends who he can't hold a satisfying conversationwith over, yet he is obsessed with his discovery and wants to keepdigging. He feels disconnected, he is metaphorically digging his wayout of his crisis by investing himself in this emotional escape. Hewants to find mystery, excitement, meaning, a situation that's biggerthan him. At the end of the day, he just wants to find something. Allof this goes away at the end of his search.

Lee (Rosemarie DeWitt), on the other hand, is struggling with the ideathat passion is absent in her life and that she has neglected her owndesires. She yearns for a night out in town with her old friend butinstead finds herself in the company of the dashing Ben (OrlandoBloom), which helps her assess her quest to find this passion sherealizes is fleeting and impermanent.

The film feels surreal, it is as if Tim and Lee are in a relationshiplimbo, hitting pause on their life together while they find answers totheir personal issues. Did they change? Have they moved on from whothey were? Do they still want the same things as they did before? Arethe doubts they have simply just nostalgia? In a lot of ways, what theywere both looking for and what they found were the same. Both Johnson &DeWitt deliver natural performances as expected from a Swanberg film.

The film's great feature is its ability to keep the viewer's mindstimulated while figuring out what it has to say about relationshipsand identity crisis. The only gripe I have with this film is theending, it would have had a perfect one if it ended a minute earlier,at the film's pivotal and most emotional moment.

Dan Romer's synth-heavy score is effectively minimalistic and directorof photography Ben Richardson's work marks a change in style inSwanberg's most and handsomely shot film. Also, honourable mention toBrie Larson, who plays a subversive version of the "other girl" trope.

IrresistibleReviewed bytentenderVote: 10/10

I am so psyched to write the first user review of this great film -- soon to be widely recognized as such, I imagine. (See New Yorker, NY Times, Variety etc. reviews -- they're ahead of me.)

"Digging for Fire" looks wonderful -- magical, even. Joe Swanberg, as natural a filmmaker as Samuel Fuller (the all-time greatest of the naturals), here has (for the first time?) chosen to shoot on 35mm Eastman color film in Cinemascope ratio. And the results are stunning -- particularly the beautiful night shooting.

As the narrative subject matter of the film involves (a) a couple in a conflicted moment and (b) the chance discovery of buried human remains, I was reminded of Rossellini's "Viaggio in Italia" -- and, surprisingly, Richard Brody (in The New Yorker) references Rossellini in his enthusiastic review. The Rossellini film -- though difficult and annoying -- is also mysteriously compelling. While Swanberg's film is far more viewer-congenial (oh alright -- "audience friendly"), a similar spiritual transformation of the characters takes place in both films. But, paradoxically, more satisfyingly in Swanberg's less explicitly and far less portentously "spiritual" film.

The acting -- from the wonderful Jake Johnson to Chris Messina in his tiny role to Judith Light and Sam Elliott as Johnson's in-laws and little Jake Swanberg as an adorable 3-year old (type-casting at its best) -- is superb -- an ensemble equal to the great assemblages Robert Altman used to gather year after year.

It seems Swanberg may have quite a nice future, for which let us be grateful.

(Side note: Interesting "Digging for Fire" is released the same weekend as Peter Bogdanovich's first film in 13 years, "She's Funny That Way" -- each opening in New York on one screen only -- try that one, too -- it's much better than the reviews would have you believe.)
