Mickey O'Hara is a committed IRA member but his days of freedom fighting are long gone, leaving him peddling drugs and disenchanted with "the cause." When a deal goes wrong, things take a dramatic turn for Mickey, who is forced to kill his partner. Marked for death, Mickey flees to LA, determined to make a fresh start and leave his violent past behind. When a close friend runs afoul of some powerful drug dealers, Mickey temporarily resorts to his old ways to help him get out of trouble. However, instead of making things better, Mickey unwittingly sets off a chain of events that reawakens the ghosts of his past and threatens to destroy everything he holds dear.

That led to feel sad when seeing the burial of the so-called assassin, the helplessness of his family because each of them bearing the same last name. Not to mention they had to change their names and moved somewhere afterwards.

J M (it) wrote: This movie really struck a chord with me. I don't think I've ever seen a movie that deals with male rage and anger as honestly (and fairly) at this one. The fact that Chazz makes this guy sympathetic is a testimony to his acting chops. The director got solid performances out of all of her actors but Chazz and the youngest daughter were especially strong. Is it a coincidence that the reviewers who didn't like this movie are men and that reviewers who DID like it are women? Just asking.I am actually going to recommend this movie to my book club. I bet the discussion afterwards is going to be kick ass because I think this issue has touched so many of us at one time or another. A strong recommend.

Adam P (de) wrote: I took off one star for William Holden's awful acting, one star for Kim Novak's mullet, one star for the underdevelopment of the 'other' man, and half a star because it's just boring and really has very little to hold my interest. A romance between bland stupid rural pretty people? Just not my thing.
Robert B (jp) wrote: Proof is a nice little film I rate up mainly on account of the performances and some good moviemaking. Gwyneth Paltrow gives an earnest performance and makes for a sympathetic and believable lead. The other actors are up to par and nicely compliment her character. The film tries to hit a sentimental note, and move the audience with some dramatic scenes. I cannot say it totally comes off, but it comes off well-enough. Proof is a bit like a modern day Bergman film, with similar kind of heart, but is more optimistic.
Roy N (fr) wrote: I love Burt Reynolds movies, though theres no Burt in Hot Stuff, it feels like one. Mainly cuase it's got Dom Deluise AND Jerry Reed, but unlike Smokey and the Bandit 3 (which is also a Burt movie without Burt) this is really very good. A nice funny caper movie written by Donald Westlake who always writes a good funny caper.
Ben S (au) wrote: John Wayne is a cowboy that finds himself buffeted by strong currents in a town where more is going on than meets the eye. A RKO cheapie that is a real surprise package. Very entertaining with some likeable characters, albeit a little cliched, and some nicely done suspense. The plot does get a little shaky toward the end though. Wayne and Ella Raines throw off plenty of sparks whenever they are together.
Reece L (gb) wrote: Similar to Altman's swan song A Prairie Home Companion in its rumination on death and tonally consistent with the work of Terence Davies, The Dead is Huston's final film and (fittingly) touches on themes of memory, nostalgia, generational differences, and ultimately the rejection of death. Gorgeously shot and well-acted, it may be a low-key chamber piece, but it deals in lofty existentialism that lends it a more universal effect than similarly-structured works.
