beautiful ending
13 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A little known film from late in Mitchum's career.Rather low key,but,beautifully acted by Mitchum and Brimley.Mitchum gives a wise,seasoned performance,as the lifetime criminal he portrays must surely be.The ending,however,is the reason you want to watch the film again and again.Mitchum was the best at portraying such poignant beauty.You don't see endings like this anymore,or,even,acting,where the characters are so believable.Sure,certain plot lines are rather far-fetched ,I can't imagine a prisoner being transported to another facility and having their handcuffs removed then sharing a drink with his transporting officer,even if they have known each other for 30 years.But again,suspend disbelief and enjoy this beautiful tale of good men who have made some bad decisions.
