(ca) wrote: I hadn't seen this in years, so it was nice to revisit it, and I was surprised how well I remembered it considering it's now 25yrs old. Both Caan and Bates are great in it, a rare exception of someone in a horror film winning an Oscar, but Bates deserved it. I also really liked Richard Farnsworth in it, I hadn't remembered his character as well, but it jumped out this time. This film is a must!

(de) wrote: This is one of my all time favorite movies; I even bought it when I could no longer find it in the rental stores anymore becuase it was so old. The tension and intelligence in this movie make it completely worth seeing; the main characters solidly hold their own on screen - especially Dustin Hoffman. The time warp is also interesting in that it is set in 1926, with Vanessa Redgrave playing a very convincingly upset and frazzled Agatha Christie - but still stable enough to organize an amazing coup on her rival for her husband. Totally worth seeing; if you don't, you'll miss a great piece of history that may or may not have happened.

He helps them a whole lot as he is a superbly skilled hunter, wilderness master and he is also bubling over with wise, nice words. The wildlife is the only life he can live.This is lovly captured. Nearly two and a half hours of old history with few turns may seem like a big thing to swallow, but it's never boring. Superb photography, some memorable scenes and the splitting of the film (two parts) is nice. I won't give away a key feature here, but the turn that takes place is hitting a sweet spot.A very long production with wild tigers, turbulent weather and great scenery. Great acting and good atmosphere. I felt I learned something important from it. It will certainly grow on me, since it's turning better in my head days after watching it. Not a fantastic film, but it's very solid, mesmerizing and unforgettable. Only my second Kurosawa flick, but there will be many more.7.5 out of 10 Kapitans.
