Mr. Jones's walk on the top of the roof at the beginning of the film has him walking South along the ridge. His 'reprise' of that same walk, at the end of the film has him walking East along a ridge. The whole roof line changed completely from earlier in the film. Construction on top of the gable is now not there. See more »
I'm going to tell you something. Both of you listen, you might learn something. It is not a disease! Okay? Not a disease! I do not have a disease. This is who I am! I like who I am! You got it?
The fact is, that the doctor and the other fine healers have decided that Im bipolar... and this is without regard to the fact that they have not one shred of evidence.

This is a beautifully written movie of a manic depressive. All the moods and feelings this man experiences is brought to life so expertly by Richard Gere.
This is perhaps Richard's best performance. I don't think many actors could have pulled this off and make it seem authentic. How Richard never won an Oscar or was not even nominated for his performance is beyond me.
Richard obviously spends a lot of time preparing for a roll, being that he is a perfectionist and it shows in everything he does.
I think Richard Gere is the most underrated actor in Hollywood. I have read a lot of the negative comments of his bad choices on the rolls and movies he picks to do (which I don't agree), but on this movie his choice was perfect.
If you want to see one of Richard's best performances then this is a MUST SEE.
