TOMORROW YOU'RE GONE is no thriller, which is not, of course, an entirely bad thing. It's a strange, dreamlike, and fairly uneventful film about Charlie Rankin (Dorff) being released after a four-year stint in prison, intent on wreaking vengeance on those who put him there and performing "hits" against adversaries of "The Buddha"(Dafoe), another former--now dead?--inmate who acts as his ethereal mentor. He also meets "Florence Jane" (Monaghan) the girl of many-a-guy's dreams, but not Rankin's, who just wants to be friends with her. Florence Jane, it would seem, is a sort of guardian angel figure save, perhaps, the "guardian" part. Much of it is open to interpretation, and much of it simply doesn't make a whole lot of sense. More thematic and atmospheric than action-oriented, TOMORROW YOU'RE GONE is well-filmed and well-played, and much of the script (especially Florence Jane's) is quite memorable without being overly pretentious: See the quote from "The Buddha" used as my title here. TYG also has things to show and tell us about the futility of vengeance, the destructive nature of bitterness, and various other things. If only the plot were better. . .
"You have me to get you started out" Charlie Rankin (Dorff) has just got out of prison and stops in to see a man called "The Buddha" (Dafoe) who was writing him in prison. He is told about someone he is to murder for him. When the murder goes wrong Charlie begins to worry about what will happen. Him and a woman named Florence (Monaghan) begin to hang around together and Charlie thinks it will help, but he isn't sure of anything anymore. I have to start by saying that I did enjoy this and I recommend this movie but it is not for everyone. While not a total "art-house" type movie it is in that vein. The movie is more of a character driven type movie then I was expecting, but I really think that helped the movie. Dorff is good in this and Defoe has a strong and powerful presence even though he is only in it a few minutes. This is not really a fast paced movie but it will keep you watching right up until the end. I liked it. Overall, not a movie for everyone but well worth checking out. I say B.
Tomorrow You're Gone a.k.a. Boot Tracks is a Thriller that centers on Charlie Rankin (Stephen Dorff), who prior of getting released from prison gets a message from his "mentor" - "The Buddha" (Willem Dafoe) to kill somebody... But the murder goes wrong and Charlie gets seriously effected by it... meanwhile Charlie begins to have some serious hallucinations because of his past and because of what he's doing... On a way he meets these mysterious girl Florence Jane (Michelle Monaghan) who reminds him of someone he used to know and together they embark on a mysterious journey... PS: it's only 88 minutes long..
This carefully crafted film kept me awake as I watched it in the wee hours. Each character was skillfully played and kept me guessing as to what they would do next. Unpredictable and dark, I still wonder if Florence wasn't an angel there to take Charlie home. The scenes in the forests were particularly good as the sounds of nature were allowed to take the place of music. I did find the reason to be a bit unclear as to why Defoe's character needed a hit carried out, but maybe I missed something. This movie is well worth your time to view. These actors worked very well together! ... Tried to be honest without ruining the end? Sigh....
Charlie Rankin (Stephen Dorff), recently released from prison, seeks vengeance for his jail-house mentor William "The Buddha" Pettigrew (Willem Dafoe). Along the way, he meets the ethereal, yet streetwise, Florence Jane. They embark on a unlikely road trip, careening towards an unlikely redemption and uncertain resolution. Although this film had many good moments (such as the home invasion) and it is possibly Dorff's final acting to date (he has really blossomed in this role) it overall just seems too uneven and did not resonate well with me. The primary problem I had was with Florence. She was not someone I felt the audience could understand or appreciate. Why did Rankin like her? Their whole relationship is built on nothing. And yes, I understand this is a whimsical road trip without commitment... but she was just the wrong character for such a thing. And if there was a deeper message, I missed it. All that occurred to me is that Charlie Rankin has the same name as the Nazi in Orson Welles' "The Stranger". I sincerely doubt this was intentional, because trying to draw parallels is far too difficult -- Welles' Rankin is a false identity hiding from his criminal past. Rankin is this film uses the alias Samson and he, too, has a criminal past he cannot overcome. But that is it (and only works in the most vague way). The novel probably clears things up, but after seeing the film I have little motivation to seek it out.
