The Field Review


Excellent
Richard Harris's standout performance elevates this simple fable -- and a film I've resisted seeing for over a decade -- into a near classic. The battle is a well-known one: Harris is Bull McCabe, a simple rancher who rents a small plot of land to graze his cattle. But the owner decides to sell it, and a rich American (Tom Berenger) swoops in, intent on paving the thing. At first we side with Bull, but when things turn violent (that, we're told, is "the law of the land"), we wonder if we haven't been too hasty with our judgement. Quite touching though -- owing to its theatrical origins -- it's missing a sense of grandeur.

My Left Foot Review


Excellent
One of cinema's most infamously hoity-toity titles covers one of its most infamously arty topics: An Irish writer/painter with cerebral palsy who can only use his left foot -- and barely, at that. Never mind the eye-rolling and the nay-saying. My Left Foot is a heartfelt and soulful movie. And while you'll know you're watching an art movie when you sit down to ogle it, you're not going to find a film dripping with saccharine or even shrouded in subtitles. This is just good old-fashioned filmmaking that just so happens to be about a guy that can barely move.

Christy Brown (who died eight years before this film was made) was born with C.P. and pretty much assumed by his family to be retarded beyond hope until -- as a pre-teen -- he proved he could scrawl a word on the floor with his toes. Encouraged by his mother (Brenda Fricker), Christy learns to read and write, and even paint. Meanwhile, of course, adversity waits at every turn.

Dancing At Lughnasa Review


Weak
Meryl Streep has made some dull movies in her life, but -- whew! -- none so limp as this. In Dancing at Lughnasa, five downtrodden sisters in 1930s Ireland cope with the arrival of a dying/crazy brother as well as the father of one of thier sons. They may be sad sacks, but play a little ditty and these girls get up off their feet and hit the dance floor -- er, the dance dirt, seeing as there's not much floor to hit. Confused, random, and awfully self-important, this film should never have been made.
