Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night (or How to Grow Old Disgracefully)
The movie Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night (or How to Grow Old Disgracefully) was released in 1999. It’s plot is based on a true story. In the movie, two brothers are killed during a robbery gone wrong. They were shot while trying to escape from police officers who had been tipped off by their accomplice who they thought was dead. The film follows the brothers’ lives after the deaths of their parents.
Their mother remarries and moves away, leaving them with their father. One day one of them finds out that his brother has died in prison and decides to rob him so he can pay for his lawyer fees. However, things don’t turn out how he expected when the man turns out to be alive. After robbing the man, he kills him too. The other brother then tries to kill himself but manages to survive long enough to tell his story.
The movie has become very popular among criminals because it depicts the reality of what happens when someone commits a crime thinking they’re going to die or at least get caught. Some people have even used this movie as inspiration for committing crimes in real life! If you want something done right, you need to do it yourself!
The movie also has a few scenes that are very memorable, so much so that they’ve been parodied in other movies and shows. One scene where a law student is trying to find loopholes in her client’s case is very funny as she goes on about the laws of search and seizure, dismissing important details such as who died and how.
The movie can also be quite sad at times, with its realistic portrayal of broken families and the death of parents and children. The characters in the movie, even the ones who are criminals, are all very human. The audience can’t help but feel sorry for them, and yet they still make bad choices that have terrible consequences. We see this in scenes such as when one of the brothers tries to kill himself or when the mother leaves her sons behind. Whatever choices you make in life, you must live with the consequences.
We see this in the movie with how the surviving brother is tormented by his actions.
This film is great for people who like crime movies like The Town or Carlito’s Way. It’s a movie that stays with you long after you see it, although not in a good way. Everyone remembers something different about the movie. Some people remember the funny moments, others the sad and others the action. It’s up to you to decide what your favorite part was, or if there was even one at all.
The movie is a bit depressing and not for the faint of heart, but it’s certainly worth watching if you’re a fan of serious movies that don’t have a “happy ending” like most movies these days. It’s definitely not your average movie.
