Story :

Paul Schrader's Affliction; adapted from the novel by Russell Banks (The Sweet Hereafter); charts the slow descent of small-town sheriff Wade Whitehouse (a raspy; gruffly restrained Nick Nolte) into violence; the legacy of the corrupt love of an abusive; alcoholic father. The story ostensibly centers on a hunting death on the outskirts of town; but as Wade digs into what may or not be a conspiracy; his personal life spirals out of control. James Coburn; who deservedly won an Oscar for his mocking; sneering performance; is Wade's father; who jumps back into the cycle of abuse when Wade moves in to care for the aging man. Chronicling the story in distant; dispassionate tones is Willem Dafoe as Wade's younger brother Rolfe; who "escaped" his father's legacy in a world of books. Schrader has made his reputation revealing the scarred psyches of American men trying to reconcile the contradictions of masculine fantasy and social reality; as in his screenplays for Taxi Driver and Raging Bull; and in Affliction he creates his most poignant and powerful work. The quiet beauty of the snow-blanketed New Hampshire setting (using Canadian locations) and Schrader's restrained yet intimate cinematic style builds the underlying emotional tensions until they explode in startling close-ups; revealing the repressed fear; rage; and helplessness cracking through Wade's carefully maintained fa?ade. As Rolfe's narration coolly analyzes his brother's affliction; he reveals his own: an emotional remove so complete that he's edited himself out of his family history. The legacy of abuse leaves no one untouched. --Sean Axmaker
