A very strong performance by Anthony Hopkins, Bart the Bear, and Alec
Baldwin, in that order, in a film that deals with the important
subjects of virtue, wisdom, and morality. I can understand why some of
the modern audience might find that to be a turn-off.
The sets and locations alone are worth a rental, especially of the DVD,
the haunting Goldsmith score lingers in the memory and enhances the
viewer's pleasure in the film. What a joy it is to see a film that is
tautly and expertly written, that tells the salient details of the plot
but leaves you guessing--through repeated viewings--of the whys, wheres
and whens of the development.
If you favor serious drama--if you relish philosophy--if you don't need
a film spoon fed to you or so puerile that they try to stun you with
explosions--you will enjoy The Edge.
