How to Play
'His approach is not a new one, the '60s were brimming with anti-romantic westerns, and neither is his story.'Hal Hinson, Washington Post
'It's a lighthearted musical romp that covers such topics as child labor exploitation and disappoints mostly because it has little bite.'Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
'There are blue skies in the hero's dreams of long-ago happiness, but that proves the point... the story line is 'Rocky' on downers.' Roger ****
'It will find a surefire audience among circus fans. Other moviegoers who endure it will have to console themselves by laughing at a story that often makes a travesty of itself.'TIME Magazine
'Very much a melodrama of the 80s, following the example of Kramer vs. Kramer by balancing emotional goo with bleached, sterile visuals.'Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
'A disgusting account of what the evil Vietnamese did to poor, innocent Americans stands at the center of this Oscar-laden weepie about macho buddies from a small industrial town.'Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
'He makes his directorial debut in this plodding, simplistic and overlong politically correct Western epic, where the Native Americans are the good guys.'Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
'Frankly, my dear, I didn't (and don't) give a damn about the South's yokel notion that it once supported a new age of chivalry and grace.'Richard Schickel, The Atlantic
'A conventional over-hyped picture lifted by unconventional fairly-hyped performances. Truly the m - m - most British movie ever made.'Gareth Simms, Platform
'We are asked to believe that his character is compassionate, interesting, even heroic, though the character we see is simply an unconvincing actor imitating a lug.'Vincent Canby, New York Times
