A film about Mark David Chapman in the days leading up to the infamous murder of Beatle John Lennon.
"It's an amazing story. I can relate to it. Not that I wanna shoot my idols or anything like that. Just the way the guy acts. The way he feels. I love the book The Catcher In The Rye and the fact that the movie is made around that is fantastic. You get such a warm feeling when you hear the guy talk. I feel like I wanna protect him. The acting of Jared Leto Wow! He's so deep. The way he's this geeky humble kinda guy who's almost living The Catcher In The Rye. The way he feels that John Lennon has betrayed him but still is a fan a heart. He plays the mental and confused guy so amazingly that it takes my breath away. The directing is fantastic too. It's really capturing the atmosphere. And the coloring works so well. This is a movie that, by most people, will be looked down on. You know for portraying a man who killed a legend. But in some years this is going to be a cult classic. It's an art movie and it's hard to understand if you don't see it. I mean like really SEE it. It's beautiful and people should really give it a chance. Watch it. SEE it!" Written by FoxyHorror on
"I have read a few of the comments already posted, and am amazed that no one has mentioned the fact that this movie if effectively telling the story of Holden Caulfield. I have heard in the past that many people have looked at turning The Catcher in The Rye into a movie, but have found it difficult as most of the book is spent inside Holden's head. Chapter 27, so named because The Catcher in The Rye has only 26 chapters, is telling the story of The Catcher in The Rye as well was the Story of Mark David Chapman who was apparently obsessed with the book. This is a dark film, and very few people will leave the cinema with a big smile on their face, but I certainly recommend seeing it, especially anyone who has read The Catcher in The Rye."

"I wasn't sure what to expect of this movie, given the reviews that were all over the place. I was prepared for it to be dark, and for the narrative to not necessarily be straight-line. But... I wasn't prepared to like it as much as I did.
Yes, the movie doesn't give you any answers, that much of the criticism is true. But in the end, I think it's more satisfying that way. We get a little glimpse at a person who committed an inexplicable act, and maybe know a little more about him, but in the end, do we really understand? No. And that's fine. Sometimes we just DON'T know the answers to everything.
Jared Leto's performance is amazing, and well worth seeing even were the movie much worse than it is. He goes to some other place entirely, and shows us what it's like there - which, in my mind, IS great acting. Lindsey Lohan is quite good in her role, but the part is very limited - the movie belongs to Jared.
It's a shame this movie wasn't seen more widely; it certainly deserves to be." Written by LilithOfSherwood on
