Movie Reviews

Up-close and intimate
Martyn Richard Jones | Cordoba, Spain | 10/24/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The films I watch tend to be action films of the likes of Arnie, Stallone and Gibson et al. So it may come as a surprise that I say that I think this film is a real gem. So why do I think that? Well, for a start it's just a pure delight from start to end. Great acting, great directing, great storyline. It's a southern story played out with charm, elegance and humanity. It's really very diificult to say exactly why one likes this movie because it really is a special personal experience that covers so many things, from aspects of motivation, the way the characters reflect and even just their accents. I will never forget those simple lines "oh babe why did you do it" and the replies, or the "she was just having a very bad day" lines too. It's a very personal film, laid back, up-close, intimate, soft, a work of art. Brilliant acting, brilliant direction and brilliant script - lovely film."

"This movie, to me, was truly wonderful. It pulls you in and makes you want to keep watching. The comedy is wonderful, as is the drama. Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange, and Sissy Spacek are wonderful as three sisters who are reunited because of something that happens. Sam Shepard has a wonderful supporting role as 'Doc'. All of the actors were terrific in this movie. If you like dramas and comedies mixed into one, then definitely rent or buy this movie. You won't regret it! Three Oscar winning actresses in the leading roles, a wonderful storyline, and a wonderful play-turned-into-a-movie."
Great movie
Ralph R. Echtinaw | Alma, MI United States | 07/31/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Usually when I sense that the actors had a great time making a movie, the result isn't particularly noteworthy. ("Cannonball Run" comes to mind.) But "Crimes of the Heart" is an exception. If Jessica Lange, Diane Keaton and Sissy Spacek weren't absolutely delighted to tackle the lead roles in this film, they are much better actors than I thought.The material is reminiscent of Flannery O'Connor, who wrote some of the most humorous, offbeat Southern fiction extant.The three sisters are so controlled by their visceral reactions that one wonders if any of them have ever had an intellectual moment. Although it would be maddening to have such people for friends, they're great instruments for movie comedy.One final note: If anyone thinks Sissy Spacek is goofy-looking (as I used to), they will change their mind when they see her in this. She is absolutely gorgeous here."
Always makes me smile

"I've seen this movie about 5 or 6 times. After each viewing, I always feel good. Yes, it's kind of strange and sad, but Diane, Sissy and Jessica are fabulous. Tess Harper as Chick and Sam Shephard as Doc round out a superb cast. If you're in the mood for something a little different to curl up with, watch Crimes of the Heart!"
