  1. I thought this was a fantastic movie. Day-Lewis and Postlewaite are superb. The depiction of war-torn Northern Ireland is also tough viewing. Yes, it’s not an easy film to watch, but I think it’s ultimately very rewarding.

  2. The film didn’t do much for me either. It was one of a series of films starring Daniel Day-Lewis where he gets to scream and emote and generally act crazy…for me it gets a little tiresome. I’d replace this film with a truly great Scorsese offering of the same year THE AGE OF INNOCENCE, in which Day-Lewis (and Michelle Pfeiffer) gives absolutely subdued but moving and breathtaking performances. This, on the other hand, is filled with histrionics (but it sure does have a great music score).
