'Toy Story'? Forget about it.
13 August 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

The Holy Grail. The Fisher King. Moby Dick. The quest motif is as old as story-telling itself, but never told so effectively or thought-provokingly as this 1979 masterpiece. Steele is solid, Franklin the stuff of childhood nightmares,but it is Reed's bold, sweeping directorial strokes that set this epic towering over its contemporaries. The fact it is set at Christmas lends it atmosphere but is immaterial - the themes are timeless, as valid now as they ever were. Essential.
