Quotes

Man on the Hill: There are also boundaries - that's part of it - it's not just this magnetic field, it's the initial response to the magnetic field that makes us build these fences. These fences, it's the way that we build everything -to protect ourselves so that we are just looking at each other across these acceptable distances. And we drew the line so we separated out. That is not our purpose. We are at odds. We are at odds right? So there isn't any real help. There really isn't any real help.

Incredibly boring and dull psychodrama.
2 August 1998 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

When an abusive man's girlfriend ends up in a wheelchair and another one jumps in front of a car to end her misery, attorney William Hurt decides to bring him to trial. Emotionally-scarred Robin Wright is called to testify at a court hearing against her former lover.

Sounds like the beginning of a good courtroom drama, and with a cast that also includes Sean Penn, Joanna Cassidy and Amy Madigan, how can you go wrong?

A lot, actually. What we have here is a strong contender for the title of Most Boring Film of the Decade. I honestly can't recall seeing a duller, slower, more sophorific piece of filmmaking.

Does director/writer Erin Dignam think real people talk and act like these characters? I'm all for psychological dramas and introspective stories but they have to be somewhat interesting. Even depressing stories can be compelling, but compared to this, Ingmar Bergman's films look like Die Hard meets Rambo. This film is so sleep-inducing, it could be used by dentists as an anesthetic.

Don't take my word, see it and judge for yourself. But make sure you have plenty of coffee available, or you may never reach the end with your eyes open.
