Movie Reviews

Terrie Leisher | Boulder, CO United States | 12/31/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I searched for this video for years and, finally, I just stopped looking. Since I currently purchase primarily DVDs, most of my searches are in the DVD category. It is fate that a friend was searching VHS movies and I happened to mention "Four Friends" - he found it!!! This movie paints a wonderful picture of life, friendships, love and family in the 60's. Each actor plays a special part in the film and in my heart. Thank you, Craig!!!"

"This is Arthur Penn's greatest movie and should have taken its place as an American classic long ago. It drops a narrative bombshell halfway through that comes closer than anything else I've seen to evoking the traumas that America experienced in the 60s. It's wonderful to have it avaliable on video at last, but the luminous cinematography by Ghislain Cloquet deserves to be seen on widescreen DVD (any hope of this, MGM?)."
Finally released : GET IT NOW !

"Four friends is the most beautiful, romantic, dramatic, American fresque I have ever watched. The actors are wonderful and true. The story is human and deep as a great novel can be. I have been waiting for a dvd editions for years, sending many e-mails and finally my dream came true. I have just watched it, and it doesn't get old. Thank you Mr Penn, thank you Craig Wasson, my dear Danilo, this film will remain in my heart for ever, just like the little flute medoly Danilo plays when he arrives in the USA from his Yougoslavian home. And a great thank you to the editors for finally releasing it, with a special gift to me : the french language subtitles ! :o)
... did I mention FOUR FRIENDS is my favourite movie ever (OK Orson, after Citizen Kane... ;o) ) ?"
