(it) wrote: Meg Ryan, as always, is quirky, quick witted, and down to earth in an always relatable way. In my own life I have had to play the role of the family backbone by keeping watch over my sisters to make sure they succeed in their ambitions, obtain unconditional love, and never look back with regret... among other things. But my most important role I have been given, could be titled, in a general way as "care taker". My mother was never too interested in anyone besides herself. My father was extremely ill my entire life and over the years I watched him deteriorate before me, slowly and painfully. Forgetting I was his own flesh and blood. Forgetting his own identity. And scared to death multiple times a day when he came to realization how far gone his brain was from his body. Besides Meg Ryan's perfect portrayal of a woman in this kind of extreme high stress- high emotional position, of what actually happens to a family in this situation. To the people that have reviewed this and say different haven't experienced the small quirks that destroy your heart moment by moment and the small quirks that keep your love for these people so strong it becomes loyalty no one can understand. Words are said with a much stronger impact than understandable unless you have walked a mile in our shoes. Love your sick drunk father that loves you more than life but spills slurs that are completely unforgivable. Or forget him forever because he has become intolerable and cruel in a way that should never be stood for because of his dementia. I love this movie and it's perfect portrayal of this situation. Welcome to the life of just a few people that have to go through this.

(us) wrote: In addition to being the last of the three Harry Palmer spy films made in the late 60's, this is also Ken Russell's first feature film. At first I thought there was little sign of Russell's influence since the mood of the film was similar to the other films in the series, but that isn't true as you get a ways into it. In a way, Russell's approach here reminds me a bit of his approach to "Altered States". While this film lacks the visual excesses of that film, both films pitch their material up at the level of high melodrama. The last half hour of this film is pretty absurd, but Russell almost makes a virtue of it's absurdity by heightening the intensity. It's an approach that I think is extremely successful in the case of "Altered States", less so here. Still, it salvages a rather silly plot that veers closer to James Bond material than either of the earlier Palmer films
(de) wrote: A perfect movie, a psychologic thriller to be more exact with some excellent performances especially by Cusack and like with so many jewels before, they get ignored and every critic jumps on the bandwagon of bad mouthing a really really good movie.
