Powerhouse Imagery About Father/Son Relationships & Excellent Acting
Anthony Hopkins shows why he's so good at understated characters that just loom large in their fumbling humanity. This film is creative with it's film technique and the shot of the kid trapped in the plastic film is so well-done and lyrical. Great movie.. See it if you can!!
