  • The picture's blandness - and hollowness - is startling when you consider the collaborators. [26 Nov 1986] show more

  • A courageous and serious film that explores the limits of the mythic American virtues of persistence, inventiveness, and rugged individualism. show more

  • The movie has been directed and acted so well, in fact, that almost all my questions have to do with the script: Why was the hero made so uncompromisingly hateful? show more
