It touched home with me.
It really is worth watching because of all the different characters in
it.You can get something from each one. I've seen it 6/7 times and have
tired of it yet. It touches home with me because I was in the military at
that time and know of the problems of the returning vet. If you weren't
there,maybe this will help you to understand the ones that were.I'm still
looking for that perfect woman that Ed Harris talks about. Watch it with
your favorite girl and maybe you will find out that you have found her.
says that Kathy Baker is not beautiful? Her inner beauty just glows here
along with a girl next door kind of looks.I still say that De Nero is the
best and this only shows it more.
I'm only sorry that this is not yet available in my region in DVD and
really know why.Those of you in regions that have it in DVD are

Great acting, so-so script
I did not like the pretentious and overrated Apocalypse Now. Probably
my favorite Vietnam War film is The Deer Hunter. The Deer Hunter
focused on one part of the war, and then focused on the lives before
the war. This movie is essentially Deer Hunter 2. The script is too
loose compared to the Deer Hunter. The story is never developed to the
point that the audience can truly understand and feel for the
characters like the Deerhunter did. The Vietnam flashbacks are not as
gripping or involved as the ones in the Deerhunter. This is why I can
only give this movie 7 out of 10.
However, I think that the acting was outstanding. DeNiro and Harris are
truly amazing actors. They totally immersed themselves in their
characters and expressed the great anguish of two former friends who
lost their best friend Bobby in combat. Harris' character is a
half-dead alcoholic, who hides the guilt that he has in Bobby losing
his life trying to save his.
I also like the supporting cast. Everyone in the town is part of the
movie. The town obviously can't handle Vietnam vets very well. Like
many small towns, it is all about being quiet, humble, and minding
one's business. Harris' character, however, can't be any of these
things. It is interesting how wars effect people. Some people rebound
quickly, while others never really recover..
