Director
NORMAN is a slow burn. For the first 30 minutes I couldn't figure out what I was watching. The next hour was okay, but not as interesting as I wanted it to be. However, the last 30 minutes finish with quite a bang. Once everything comes together and the good and the bad collide head on it makes for a very interesting final act.

Maybe it needs the full 90 minutes of setup for the ending to be so powerful, but I really think it could have been about 30 minutes shorter and accomplished the same thing.

Richard Gere is outstanding in his role. He will make you feel slimy and awkward, happy and triumphant, and you'll also feel terrible for him.

It is an interesting film, but not one that you need to see in theaters. A DVD or digital rental will be perfectly fine.
