Will leave you speechless, literally - a rare mirror into the soul

Well, it's been 15 minutes since the movie ended and I can not speak. Literally, my throat is closed.

The writer(s), director(s), and actors all reached new territories I wager.

I had no idea what the movie was about before watching it. The opening scene is breathtaking, however, diving into these peoples lives is breathtaking.

What a surprise - WHAT a surprise, no - not any scene in the movie, the entire ride.

The STRANGEST thing that happened to me watching this movie was I said to my wife about 1/2 way through when I started wondering where it's going, how things might turn out - I go "well honey, I just hope it doesn't turn out to be a Blair Witch" - no kidding, she looks up the actors and finds out one of the main actors? was from... Blair Witch.

I mean WHAT ARE THE ODDS?

I think the movie pivots around Joey and Chad in so many ways.

However, there IS a scene with Saul and Chad - when Saul goes "You tell ME what it's about" heads interlocked, I found genuinely moving.

random fact my wife looked up - Joey's REAL father in life ? IS Saul - he real father in this movie (no worry, that's not a spoiler, just an overlap from real life to this movie).

I really do have to despise 'provider dad' but not to the point I will let his character interfere with his future endeavors - I look forward to more offerings from everyone in this movie.

I will be watching it again, likely in a year or two or three just to revisit some of the delicate messages our Messiah Chad brings forth (again, that's no spoiler, I just chose to enshrine Chad in role of Messiah here - something unworldly about him - in a very good way).

I STILL can't talk - it feels like I have a baseball in my throat.

Do watch this when you have time to not think about a care in the world- no kidding, you will find EVERY care in the world by the time you are done. That way it will have full impact on you.

I could say this movie placed Chad in a complex Messiah like role, however, I could also say this movie is a coming of age story...

HOWEVER, I must be clear, it is a coming of age movie for anyone who sees it.

I just wonder if Blair Witch guy hooks up with the Jeweler and does Saul hook up with - oh wait - nope - that's not gonna happen now is it - or ghost man leaves 'not gonna be that mans vessel' woman.

I said to my wife is that Reese? Witherspoon, she goes no - remember Ratrace and I kept referring to her as my 5 bucks back lady.

Names are not important to me - I respect every actor in this movie, this kind of movie comes along RARELY.

I could only wish it was 3 hours long, instead of nearly 2, sure would have beat that Hobbit escapism trash that ran 3 hours, and how much of Sam and Bilbo can you really take with that pesky golemn.

By the way- FAVORITE scene in this movie for me is 4th of July parade - Chad lets himself join this world in entirety for a few moments, and then - that damned bird shows up in the sky to take him back- high above - far away - far FAR away where he always was - looking down. Indeed Chad brings a strong Messiah element here.

WATCH THIS MOVIE. heh. Be touched. Chad would want you to ! :)

I could only suggest one improvement to this movie- similar to Jerzy Kosinski's 'Being There' - in the movie vs the book ? One of the two has 'Chance' end scene - WALKING on the water, EASILY the Messiah element - or otherwordly element is there. I could only wish that as all watched from shore - Chad would have gotten up and walked on the water.

No real spoiler there, but I HAD to include that because it would have taken me over the top had it been in there.

One MORE tidbit - just watched an interview with Johnny Redwood Tree - she said her parents wrote her a part INTO this movie - has to be a very unique family experience there heh. "My parents are taking me to get the roller-coaster park this summer - what are you parents doing? oh? My parents are making a movie and they put me in it" heh... Too much in a good way.

Unique, Moving, and Compelling

I wasn't sure what to expect when I sat down to watch Among Ravens. I had seen the trailer and was intrigued by the idea of "Ravens" as a symbol of family and it had been quite some time since I had seen Amy Smart in a film. Let me just say, I was pleasantly surprised and thought the film was completely delightful. Filmed in the incredibly beautiful wilderness of Idaho, Among Ravens is a fun yet very emotionally compelling drama about family and human relationships. In some respects it reminded me of The Royal Tenenbaums with all its quirky characters, but with some of the seriousness and dramatic undertones of August Osage County. Overall, the performances were strong -- Amy Smart was wonderful and if you're a fan of Believe (which was sadly canceled) you will be blown away by Johnny Sequoyah's performance. If you're looking for something different, filled with real heartfelt emotion, then sit down and watch this movie.

An entertaining movie with memorable characters

Cinematography-wise, Among Ravens was a gorgeous film. The location they chose was great, and it was just very visual. A lot of the focus was on nature and the outdoors as much as it was about the conflicts between the characters, which I though tied in nicely with the parallels Johnny Sequoyah's character, Joey, was making between people (specifically her family) and ravens. Plot-wise it had a lot going on; all of the characters seemed to have their own issues and dramas that were revealed at different times, and the relationships between the characters were all pretty complicated (and at times confusing). I thought that Saul King's story thread was really interesting in particular, and both Joey and Chad (Will McCormack) were very sympathetic characters, whose friendship was probably my favorite part of the movie. Overall it was an enjoyable film.
