Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but emersbc's is at odds with that of most people's. Does he or she realize that Linda Hunt won an Oscar for that incredible performance?

No, the film does not totally work but I like what one reviewer said who called it a flawed masterpiece. It's def up there tho. Wish they would release a BD. Tired of waiting; might have to see if I can find it in 35mm. Yes, I can show that.

Cinematography and casting terrific, plot a little thin.

This movie was really bad. First, why was Linda Hunt playing Billy Kwan? It was really distracting and her narration was extremely annoying. Gibson and Weaver were o.k. but the plot was thin, the characters underdeveloped and, well, yawn.

A compelling story with a spectacular acting turn by Hunt together with strong work from Weir, Weaver, Gibson, Jarre et al. Very subtle and stunning wide-angle work by Russell Boyd.
