Grief gets weird in Vallee's ambitious DemolitionWhat if a young man who just lost his young wife in a car accident experienced none of the stages of grief? In the case of Davis Mitchell (Jake Gyllenhaal), the protagonist of Jean-Marc Vallee's ambitious, flawed and whimsically sinister "Demolition," let's just say that's not entirely clear.For much of the movie Davis is like the Patrick Bateman of widowers. At first, it's actually quite captivating as you drift with Davis in the aftermath of his wife's death. It's quirky but menacing and Vallee and Gyllenhaal find the dark humor in this man's odd behavior.
