Yes, he was great in The Straight Story. But my far and away favorite of his is The Grey Fox (1982). The movie is phenomenal: the subject matter, the settings, the time period, the production...

Great film, and certainly the best ever neo-noir! I also liked The Two Jakes, and am glad it included a narrator! I wish they'd have made the 3rd film in the trilogy.

I was shocked at how bad this movie was. Despite a couple of good actor's performances, it was a lead balloon. Still, it had some official Hollywood darlings in it, and it was about a fashionable...

Well, the 4th episode was pretty much a dud. Either Sheridan's writing hit a hiccup, or Christina Voros' directing was haphazard.

The idea of the crossing challenge was interesting and practical,...
