After the death of his wife, a man comes to the realization of breaking down his life, the lies that supported it, and reclaiming his true happiness through the help of a customer service rep and her son.
Who is in it?
Jake Gyllenhaal - Davis
Naomi Watts - Karen
After realizing he enjoys taking things apart and/or destroying them, Davis offers money to a set of construction workers to let him help them demolish a building.
"Customer service is a profession?"
Demolition was definitely a surprise. The film is one that isn't for everyone and really, you sort of need a certain twist to truly enjoy and appreciate the message being sent throughout the film. At first it really seems awkward, but by the end of the film, Demolition leaves you with a very profound life lesson.
Of course, all of this is behind the awesome performance of Jake Gyllenhaal who has become one of my favorite acting talents. The dude was absolutely fantastic in this film in the role of "Davis".
All in all, if you want to watch an interesting movie about living truthfully - honestly, then this is your film. Give it a whirl, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
