(br) wrote: I enjoyed this film. I was warned that it was a bit weird, and was persuaded not to see it. Now I am glad I finally did, it was a bit artsy and focused on the visual. It reminded me of Fellini in his later productions with the color and sets. Additionally, the acting was good. Lange was distracting, and so were her sons. But Perkins and Feore were strong. I was happy to see this since I can now say that I familiar with another Shakespeare play.It inspired this poem after I finished the show:For thus does Shakespeare show his fame,In the telling of "Titus",A story that reminds us just the same,Of tragedy on every level,Affecting all who may be round,"I warn you of humanity, for this will be the sound", For thus is life and so it shall be,so feebly are we mortals playing,Oh but playing...Just a small part in this our history,Where our leaders are never pure, Where our leaders are never true,Those leaders who lost their ear for justice, Who previously was their muse.Their Words inspired, Their words aroused,The faculties of our sinews and bones,Reminding us of greater things,Where love and liberty can abound.In these ideas we are so great and yet so small,Limited by our inability to take, and make, It all part of our life and part of our faith,In a world where we are only limited by our appearance and by our weight.However, The Sins of Omission, Our Sins of Commission,Also torment our minds and souls,They make us wonder of our worth and of our reason, for our existence in this hard confusing season.Please help us through this now,is our hope and is our prayer,For rarely do we have that peace,or that guidance, That should always accompany us there,Down that long and lonely road,Of unfulfilled dreams and hopesWhere we all succumb to this treason,That eats and plagues our soulsWhenever we betray this ideal and uncompromising reason.

(br) wrote: A funny movie led by the always wonderful Billy Crystal. I have no idea how in the world Jack Palance won an Oscar for this movie or even was considered for a nomination but it is a good performance. Great cameo from Yearly Smith and a great debut for a very young Jake Gyllenhaal

(us) wrote: I'm slightly disappointed with this one as I thought it would be more intense as often claimed. Eastwood is awesome as usual and he provides countless epic one-liners, but the supporting cast sucked in my opinion. All the other marines were goof balls and pure nuisances. The final war scene was really lackluster at best and lacked any true intensity. So all in all, my rating is pretty much for Eastwood's performance, but severely overrated film by critics.
(ag) wrote: An odd time capsule of a movie. It was probably very daring for 1971 (the generation gap, instructional pot smoking, strip poker), but unfortunately, now it just felt...quaint. It's also got a truly odd-ball cast: Buck Henry, Audra Lindley, Georgia Engel, and performances by Ike & Tina Turner, Carly Simon & Kathy Bates (who's billed as "Bobo Bates").
(us) wrote: First Clint Eastwood vehicle produced outside Europe also looks like an American attempt at recreating the successful spaghetti western style, but it comes across as weak and dull especially in comparison. An innocent cowboy miraculously escapes his hanging and sets out to find the people that should have been hung instead of him. It's not a clich film and quite a spin on the justice theme in western. However, it does have many weak spots and too sloppy an ethical message getting in the way of the fun.
(it) wrote: Aidan Quinn and Beau Bridges stole the show for me; I wish these two were in more movies together. They really grounded this younger cast with their experience. The visuals were absolutely gorgeous; they really sold me on the sense of isolation that seems to haunt the main characters. Rushlights is a departure from the average thriller and brings a chill to the Texas landscape. Highly recommended.
