Duvall fans, don't miss this little film
Well, I reckon I fell in love with Robert Duvall the first time I seen him--that woulda been in the 1960's as Boo Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird.  I have been faithful in my love ever since, even when he played scary parts like Carl's father in Sling Blade.  Of course, I preferred him as a cowboy--Open Range is a great example.      In Get Low, my honey plays a hermit--something I have a fascination for, as I lead somewhat of a reclusive existence myself.  …

*** out of ****     The posters and advertisements for "Get Low" suggest that the film is based upon or tells a "true tall tale". The truth is that the film is only partially based on real events of people; and it chooses the person rather than the events. The person in this case is an old hermit named Felix Bush; who makes for an endearing old man as well as an ominously secretive fellow. There are many things to enjoy about "Get Low"; one of its positive attributes being the …

Duvall deserved an Oscar
The drama opens in the thirties, deep in the Tennessee backwoods, where old Felix Bush has lived alone for 40 years.  He's known as a crazy ol' hermit and people taunt him, but don't know him.  Felix decides it's time to "get low" - that is, to get down to business - and his business is dying.  He comes to town to arrange his own funeral party to be held while he's still alive, not because he likes parties, but because it's …

Another terrific example of Bill Murray's genius. He takes so very little given (in the script) and wrings so much out of it. Robert Duvall is nothing short of a revelation. The film seriously deserved some Academy Award nomination, but, sadly, films like this get overlooked.

   As the eccentric Felix Bush in Aaron Schneider's 2010 film "Get Low," Robert Duvall effortlessly and adroitly infuses the screen with the sweet nuance of the human spirit. In his quiet, camera close-ups the audience marvels at this actor's great gift to enrich a small film with something remarkably indefinable yet magically akin to that illusive music of the spheres that supposedly sings with celestial harmony between the atoms that fuse together to create the ultimate …

Get Low, the story of a hermit seeking redemption and re-entry into a community he left 40 years ago, isn't a great move - it's riddled with plot holes and it's ok; what's great is the acting. Robert Duvall, Sisy Spacek, Bill Burray, Lucas Black fill the screen with really well drawn characterizations. The movie is worth seeing for the first three in that line-up, but it's a shame the story couldn't have been more carefully crafted.
