It will move you in it's quiet complexities of emotion and character authenticity, and for me, spiritual transcendence thru to the awe-inspiring final communion. I think this is what the meandering film Tree Of Life wished it could be. And Tyler Perry has been trying to convey - but evidently missing - a truly redemptive church service like the one here.I can't express enough the subtle power that is here. Some will overlook the greatness bc of the quietness of its strength, but those who are thoughtful and considerate will be overwhelmingly touched and gratified. On reflection of the stories' ups and downs, there is a reality of hard country living that shines thru in the kindnesses and hard-fought triumphs that are portrayed by Sally Fields's well deserved Oscar-winning turn here. *This is no minor family drama* - don't be fooled by the mismatched reviewers.It touches on these themes: the impact of a meaningless death, grief, racism, all-too-common adult bullying, adultery, betrayal, lost love,manipulation by unjust bankers n businessmen, but also justice, tenacity, the power of deep love, reconciliation, and in the finale - the power of forgiveness and ultimate redemption. If you let it, this movie will overpower you with its gentle graces, just as its characters triumph over their adversities. Let it in. Be changed for the better. It absolutely bears repeat viewings.Based on the stories and youthful memories of Director Benton in his Texan small-town.A perfect movie - 5/5.

I know Umberto Lenzi and even though I might have know him I never planed to see a film of his but then this movie caught my attention he always said it was never a cannibal film but he is right the poster really makes it seem like one. Man from deep river is inspired by an American tale called A man named horse about native Americans capturing and eventually accepting a white man for being different and he joins there tribe. This film did that same thing. A man named John Bradley and his visit to Thailand and one night he gets into a major fight and decides to flee to the jungle for a day or two so he hires a bout and heads down stream he falls asleep and awakes to see his guide dead and a tribe captures him and claims he is a spawn of the devil. John sees the most horrific stuff even a lot in this film put me off big time. Animal murders, Rapes, fights to the death, Hard core sex scenes, Extremes amount of violence, and the list goes on and on. All I can say is this movie is Fucked up big time but still very enjoyable to see the modern man defend himself agenst a group of people that have never see a white man. The acting really is amazing for a film like this I find it so hard to watch Ivan Rassimov keep his cool during some really gross scenes. The special effects are big time in this film just watching a man get his tong cut out and massacre scenes really makes me wont to know how they did such brilliant special effects. Overall a very enjoyable Italian exploitation film witch in my opinion Avatar ripped off some scenes in this film but yeah the only thing I really hated about this were the animal killings and some scenes I really shouldn?t have viewed. But my final verdict is recommended see it if you will. Even though I might know the man that directed it I won?t see any of his films it will be tough to tell him that but I am sure he will understand.
