A very good movie

Francis Ford Coppola completely ruled the 70's. He made 4 movies, 'Apocalypse Now', 'The Godfather: Part II', 'The Conversation', 'The Godfather, they were all critically acclaimed and at least 3 of them are arguably some of the finest movies ever made. So, he ruled the 70's but it was as much a blessing as it was a curse. I mean, basically, for each movie he made afterwards, the audience was expe... read more

This film is a great example of style over substance. The film focused on having great cinematography and editing but completely lacked in narrative and character. There wasn't one character I could connect or sympathize with, and the story was seriously non-existent. Not only was there no interesting story but the whole plot just dragged on and on and on to pretty much no end, and there were seve... read more

Although it's a beautiful film to watch, it didn't pull me in emotionally. Gorgeous cinematography and worth watching (repeatedly) for that alone

“This film is a great example of style over substance. The film focused on having great cinematography and editing but completely lacked in narrative and character. There wasn't one character I could connect or sympathize with, and the story was seriously non-existent. Not only was there no interesting story but the whole plot just dragged on and on and on to pretty much no end, and there were several dumb, pointless scenes, i.e. Rusty's "Ascension"; I mean, seriously, what the fuck? Other things bugged me, too. The script was just atrocious at times and several of the big things - like letting the fishes into the river - were completely pointless and unrealistic and dumb. Coppola's direction was pretty good and all, but the acting was only about decent and other than some good performance” read more

A very good movie

“Francis Ford Coppola completely ruled the 70's.

So, he ruled the 70's but it was as much a blessing as it was a curse. I mean, basically, for each movie he made afterwards, the audience was expecting another 'Godfather' or another 'Apocalypse now'. Well, it never happened and with each new release directed by him, his reputation continued to diminish and, nowadays, he is pretty much considered a has-been. Personally, I think it's a shame because he has actually made some decent flicks which are terribly overlooked and this movie is a perfect example. Actually, it might even be Coppola’” read more

"First viewing - March 29th Visually? Wow, Amazing. Acting? Yep, pretty damn good & I couldn't help but wonder what the hell Mickey Rourke did that's resulted in his not being a major star & only recently earning some respect. Story-wise it was OK, nothing I got overly excited about. I liked some of the ideas presented in the film, and could well relate to the big brother when his father says (and I'm paraphrasing here) that he could do anything he wants but doesn't have a clue what he wants to "

" Being a young troubled idiot and all, I can 100 percent relate to this movie. Every person, no matter what age, is looking for something in life. Something to do, somewhere to go. But I think we young 'uns have it worse, there's too much instability and confusion all around. The world also gets to be too much for Matt Dillon's thuggish character, Rusty James. He's a hoodlum who just wants to be like his cool older brother, the enigmatic Motorcycle Boy played by a pre plastic surgery Micke"
