In its strongest passages, Monster is about establishing the humanity of a young black man. But it hardly expands beyond a timely Law & Order episode, albeit with more of a focus on racial politics.
In graduating to features from a busy career in music videos, commercials and photography, director Anthony Mandler can't get out of his own way.
It sounds gloomy and somber, it's true, but the emotionally rousing Monster does find threads of hope amid the despair.
Anthony Mandler's background before shooting his narrative feature debut was in music videos and commercials, but the ADD-style filmmaking he uses for "Monster" suggests he's not ready to fully command a two-hour movie.
Monster is a great character study and in-depth look at how we perceive guilt and innocence.
