Movie Reviews

Legend is a 10
Linda Abbott | Ogden, UT, USA | 08/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this combo, quite frankly, because I wanted The Legend of 1900. I still haven't watched the other movie but the deal was so good that I couldn't pass it up. I got both movies for less than the cost of the movie I wanted. The Legend of 1900 is a remarkable story of the human psyche told with magnificent music, humor, wonderful acting and beautiful photography. I don't usually watch a movie more than once and so I own very few of them..but this one needed to be mine and I never tire of watching it."
Mislabeled Comedy

"This touching movie, set in a fictitious Arizona town, has been officially labeled a "comedy" by the studio. Indeed, Tim Roth's portrayal of the non-committal boyfriend has its grin-grabbing moments: "Ya looking or buying?"However, this story is much more dramatic than anything comedic. I've seen the movie more than a dozen times and am always drawn to Fonda's loneliness, Roth's apathy, Stoltz's self-assurance, and Cate's empathy.Coupled with a deeply emotional soundtrack, "Bodies, Rest and Motion" is a MUST HAVE. It's about time (10 years) this movie was sent to DVD!But, when the studio says that these characters are "hilariously intertwined," don't believe it!"
This is a review of the combo
Patty MacDuffie | Portland, OR USA | 11/09/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Legend of 1900 is an outstanding flick, truly great. Bodies, Rest & Motion is one of those flicks that you keep watching because you're hoping it has to get better. It never does. Don't bother with buying the combo of the two flicks. Just get Legend. Only because Legend is such a strong 5 stars by itself keeps me from rating the combo lower."
Under-rated and under-recognized
Joseph Levens | Smithtown, NY United States | 03/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Despite the little attention this movie has gotten, and the varied, sporadic comments and reviews, "Bodies, Rest and Motion" is the most wonderful thing I have seen in years. The four actors (Fonda, Stoltz, Cates, and Roth) could not do better to bring to us a very subtle, touching, and elegant portrayal of loves come and gone and lives living on threads. There's no action here, and very little actually happens, but the dialogue and the attention to details are so strong, you find you don't need anything more; you can simply revel in each actor's beauty and condition. You have to watch this movie more than once, and you have to cry at times, it's that good. I'm scratching my head why this movie did not make greater acclaim. Either I'm going mental, or the world is just missing out."
