Movie Reviews

Family film
Justin C. Lanier | Mooresville NC | 10/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great short film about family and war. I enjoyed working on this film in the art department and enjoy it even more as a master piece of modern short story turned film. I you have anyone in the US service fighting the good fight you will cry as you watch this movie. The sets and colors are just great and make you feel like your in the farm land of North Carolina. The greatest state in North America!"

"It's only too obvious why this short film won the Oscar for Best Live Action Short in 2004 - because it's a true work of art. Most people never get to see the projects that win such categories - but Director Aaron Schneider has given us this wonderful gift in bringing the film to DVD. Mr. Schneider shows he can take a labor of love project and turn it into a world class production that rivals anything on the big screen. The film will make you laugh, remember, think, cry, and has an uncanny ability to take you right back to Mississippi of 1941. Jonathan Furr as Willie turns in an award winning performance himself that will endear his character to you - keep an eye out for this young man for sure! Schneider's attention to detail, not only in the film itself, but especially in the feature packed DVD, are to be commended as it's rare to see such care and attention taken for a short film. The special features and THREE commentaries from Director, Producers, crew and cast on the DVD give a rare glimpse into the world of making a short film - working on a limited budget and often with the help of favors, freebies, grants, and a lot of hard work by a cast and crew who obviously believe in Schneider and his vision for the project and story. Get this DVD by all means while you can - it will someday be a collector's item when Schneider's name is a household word next to the great directors of our time."
Oscar Winning 2003 Short
Michael Ross | 12/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The DVD released 5/22/2007 of this 2003 Oscar winning 40 minute short film is identical to the DVD released 11/22/2005 except for minute artwork changes (one line note at the bottom of the front of the 2007 DVD case is two lines on the 2005 DVD). The same special features on both are a real plus: 3 commentary tracks, behind the scenes documentary, image gallery, 21 minutes from the film featuring Alan Silvestri's music without film dialogue, and anamorphic widescreen 1.85:1 aspect."
A Beautiful Slice Of Americana
Geary A., Jones | 05/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow! This movie is everything a film should, and could be. The acting was superb- from Ron Perlman, and Ben Allison to the character actors with no more than a line, or two to deliver, but it is the performance of Jonathan Furr that is astonishing ( and he was only eight, or nine at the time ). The award winning screen adaptation was also wonderful, as was the direction, and cinemotography.

The story of a young boy trying to join the army, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, to be with his older brother is rich with pathos, humor, and humanity. It is, quite simply, delicious!"
