Review

Any Day Now, We Shall Be Released


*** This review may contain spoilers ***


Alan Cumming and the great character he stars, Rudy


It seems that Alan Cumming is widely known for his excellent performance as gentleman Eli in the TV series "Good Wife". What you may not know is that Alan was Scotland's best comic in the 90s, doing full-on high camp as an air steward before taking on film roles in America. In this film, it did require an actor of Alan Cumming's massive talent to make the relationship believable because it seems a little bit rush, which in my opinion is just the poor outcome of a one-and-a-half hour time limit. His performance, in every way, and from every perspective, is remarkable, brilliant, and unforgettable. He can be the most complicated man that plays different parts, as a drag queen, as an amazing singer, as a loving parental figure, and also as a man with a golden heart. He can also be a man, fragile inside and putting front that make him scared of nothing.


He's got this marvelous halo around him, even with wrinkles around his deep eyes. He is beautiful, no doubt. Though suffering material poverty and yet wealth in spirit, he is an existence of true flesh and blood. A fine artist, that's what he can also be. He's got an amazing voice. Most songs in this film light up the whole scene. He is not just a performer. To me, that is quite an understatement. When Paul asked him to say something about himself, you know, he sang it out with BLUES IN "F",

"I was born across the country in a place they call Queens. But I left my home behind me way back in my teens. Now I live in the so-called paradise, where they spray their grass green. Ain't got much in the way of possessions. I ain't got much dough. I work in this bar to pay my rent Keep the wolf from the door. There are better things in life than money. But I still would like some more. So you want to know about me baby, well I'm here for you. I've got exes and baggage and hang-ups and shit. And so do you."


He's got faith. With all troubles, obstacles, thorn reality that sucks, he still got a loving heart and faith in what he believes. The night he found Marco, walking on the streets in the middle of the night, alone, trying to find the way home, Rudy, when Paul asked him what was he gonna do when keeping Marco is against the law, said,

"Then we will hit the road, me and Marco, like fugitives, always one step ahead of the law. I can already see my outfit. Houndstooth suit, black overcoat and a gray fedora. I will look fabulous."


He was strong. He fought against the evil reality. He got in jail, devastated when they took Marco away. You know what, the first thing he said when he got out is,

"We're gonna get him back. Our son is God Knows where. He should be home and safe with us."


He was the most loving, caring parent that I've ever seen. Like he said in court when asked for describing himself as a parent,

"I cared for Marco like he was my own, our own. We got him up every morning, made him breakfast, took him to school, played with him, tucked him in with a story every night. We were his parents. We were damn good at it and we would like to keep on doing it."

"You can twist the truth in any way you want, but it does not alter the fact that Marco is a needy kid who deserves a family. Just because we are different does not make us bad parents."
