Movie Reviews

DVD Has Both Full Screen AND Widescreen

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I received my DVD today and despite what the "Product Details" say above, the movie is presented in both Full Screen AND Widescreen.
Critics are sometimes wrong

"Simply stated, this is a great watch. The critics did not care for this effort. Some say it is too complex, too much thinking required to follow the plot. Not at all. It is a perfect blend of hero, anti-hero, humanity's darkside and finally, a redeeming closure. DeNiro and Duvall "made" this movie!"
Brilliant performances
Victor Spoils | 12/01/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ulu Grosbard superbly realizes John Gregory Dunne's outstanding novel of two brothers--an ambitious monsignor and a corrupt LAPD detective--involved in a mysterious murder in postwar LA. The action is a bit slow compared with the crackling pace (and chuckle-a-page humor) of the novel. But the casting and performances are supremely effective. Robert Duvall turns in his finest characterization as the cop, but the entire cast turns in outstanding performances, incuding Robert DeNiro as the monsignor, Rose Gregorio as a madam, Kenneth McMillan as Duvall's equally corrupt partner, Ed Flanders as a smarmy Irish lawyer, Burgess Meredith as a crusty old priest, Cyril Cusack as a cardinal, and the great Charles Durning as a gangster seeking to buy redemption through charity. The cinematography and staging are equally exemplary. A memorable film."
Two legends in top form.

"Fans do not fret, this IS a widescreen and fullscreen DVD. I couldn't wait to pick up my copy of True Confessions this last tuesday. This film is as excellent as I remember it being back in '81 when I first saw it in a theatre. DeNiro and Duvall just don't make movies like these anymore, they both have fallen to the "Hollywood" format these day. This is a must see for fans who may have forgotten just how wonderful these two men were at the top of their game. This film is on the slower side with character and story development happening slowly, but the wonderful performances keep this film moving forward with interest. This film is a 10+!"
