He too has a breathtaking scene with Considine when Sonny first confronts Richard and Richard shows no fear whatsoever. Some have mentioned that the film carries a twist towards the end, but because of the execution it does not feel like a twist. Rather it is the culmination of a sub-plot running through the film, as the pieces of the flashbacks from years before come together.
Nothing in the film feels forced and that is perhaps the highest praise the film and its makers can be given. If the story had been a true one, it would certainly not come as a surprise, given the motivations and actions of the thoroughly believable characters.

Yet, it is at times extremely harrowing, uncomfortable and unsettling - not because of excessive amounts of gore while the film contains violence, it is the weight of the violence and not flashy blood and guts that carry impactbut because of the way the events unfold.
One prolonged sequence involves a drug trip and the scene seems to last longer than it probably actually does, mirroring the state of the drug-takers, and ending with the most unsettling acts of violence in the film. When everything is concluded, there are no real happy endings and the climax is certainly not one that can be guessed or easily foreseen. But there is a profound and sad poetry to it somehow, despite the pathos it leaves the viewer with. And after the credits roll, I found it to be a film that stayed with me for some time after - indeed, I am still trying to shake it from my mind.

And, of course, it was made by actors and a filmmaker among the most exciting to emerge in recent years, just as was Irreversible. A haunting, brilliant and sometimes profound experience in film-making and one of the best British films in a decade.
On the river he sees Gerald Bland rowing. A Southerner from KentuckyGerald is encouraged by his mother to play the role of a gentleman. Rowing on the river is part of this fantasy. The Blands are extremely proud of their high-class Southern stature, but in contrast to the old and declining Compson family, they are the new rich.
Quentin sees them as phonies, but in their superficiality and prejudice they are a more accurate representation of the early Compsons than is Quentin's ideal.
He considers Gerald a playboy, at once a threat to women and an insult to true Southern manhood. Later he gets in a bloody fight with Gerald, imagining him to be Dalton Ames The tension between Quentin and Gerald can be viewed in terms of their relationship with the river: Quentin yearns to enter its depths, while Gerald rows smoothly on its surface. He satisfies their nostalgia for a black underclass while actually taking advantage of them, bleeding them of money and gifts.
Deacon's character contributes to the novel's broader meditations on Southern race relations. Sitting next to a black man on the city train, Quentin recalls a rustic black man he saw in Virginia on his trip home for Christmas, That man played a role similar to Deacon's at Harvard: This insight that blacks mirror the dominant white society offers one basis for analyzing the relationships between the Compsons and their servants.
Near the bridge where he buries the flat irons, Quentin encounters three neighborhood boys on a fishing outing.
These boys tell Quentin about the old trout. On a meta-fictional level, these boys could be seen as representing the three Compson brothers—Benjy, Jason, and Quentin himself—whose words create competing versions of reality in the first three sections of the novel. Quentin is followed by an Italian girl he meets in a bakery.
Attempting to help her get home, Quentin crosses into an immigrant neighborhood.
These events shimmer with possible significance. Does Quentin's attachment to an Italian girl signify his increasing alienation from his own family? Is the girl a reminder of St.
