Final edited version is truly inspirational!!!!!.
I want to talk about the final edited version of this film I saw at a screening last week but first I want to talk about this film in general.

I was fortunate enough to see this film in it’s previously edited version a couple of months ago. I was amazed that a film with a budget of around a million dollars could look this incredible. I would call this a low budget film because of its budget but that is where it loses all comparison with any other low budget film I have seen.

The acting was first rate, by all involved. Trejo and Ladd did there usual amazing jobs, but Richard Tyson and Tony Longo were in a rare form I have never seen. Instead of his usual loud, brash and in your face style. Tyson carried this role off with a depth and seriousness that you could read in every line in his face. I have always been on the fence when it comes to Tyson but he showed in this role that he has what it takes to be a serious lead actor and not just the crazy loud over the top character actor he usually plays. Kudos to the director for helping him find that talent that I thought was always inside him.

Longo showed more feeling and sensitivity in this role than he ever has been before. This performance will get him out of the Goomba and common thug roles he usually plays. This role should make casting agents sit up and take notice.

At first I thought I didn’t like the choice of the young boy who played the nephew. But then I realized it was that it wasn’t that I didn’t like him it was just that he was just a real kid….not some Hollywood kid actor acting like we think a kid should act. You can’t help but fall in love with his rawness and honesty.

Technically, a great film as well. good transitions, excellent cinematography, and the soundtrack and score are as good as a studio films.

The new version I saw has a spiritual message to it that will ring home with everyone. I always thought that this was meant to be a family film but some rough language and adult situations in the earlier version caused confusion as to who this film was suited for. BUT NOT ANYMORE!!!!!!!!

JAKE’S CORNER IS A MUST SEE FAMILY FILM!!!!!

Review By: arizonafilmaker
One of the Best independent films I have seen in a long time!
Jake’s Corner is an inspiring indie family drama. It tells the story of how one family overcomes loss without allowing it to define them.

Set in the rural, high country desert town of Jake’s Corner, Arizona, Jake’s Corner the movie centers on the character, Johnny Dunn (Richard Tyson), a U of A Heisman Trophy winner and ex-pro football star who walked away from the game and stole away to the small town after the tragic loss of his parents. Dunn suffers the additional loss of his sister and is forced to temporarily take in his young nephew, Spence, to whom he decides to not immediately reveal the truth about the death of his parents. Together, along with the eclectic clan that makes up Jake’s Corner, the family learns to heal through the courage, wisdom and strength of each other.The casting of this film is brilliant in its consideration. With a blend of veteran and first time actors, Jeff Santo captures the essence of humanity that makes this film deliver. Subtle in presentation, the film draws you in with its simplistic, yet sophisticated characters and captures you with its intensity of acceptance and love without judgment that we, as humans, all crave for in our own lives.

Richard Tyson is exceptional as Johnny Dunn. Stoic and unassuming in presence, Dunn struggles with the pain of loss. Tyson superbly presents to us the raw emotion that runs deep within at all the right moments without ever compromising Dunn’s character. As Doc and Fran, B.J. Thomas and Diane Ladd share with us the wisdom of an older generation that has fully experienced a lifetime of love and loss, and deliver to us some of the best lines in the film. The remainder of the cast brings their back stories into play just enough to enhance the story and round out the film.

One of the things that I love most about this film is that there are so many stories going on within the main one. Santo doesn’t spend time delving deeply into the past of each of the characters. He doesn’t have to. That’s the genius of this film. He presents the characters in such a way that we get to know each and every one through brief encounters and simple conversation. At the end of the film, each and every character has grown on you and has a place within the story—each contributing in their own way, beautifully and simply.

The music was also an important character within the film. The string guitar was very soulful —just like everyone there. Everyone in the movie had a ton of life experience behind them, but they were just simple people. The music captured that.
