This is when I first noticed Ed Harris - he is wonderful in this.
I had seen Harris in The Right Stuff and Under Fire but happened to catch this little movie - unexpectedly - and fell in love. I watched FoG because of Blair Brown; had just recently seen her in Altered States, but Harris gives a performance that I believe is one of his best. It is a real shame this is not out on DVD; I have only seen it twice and would love to see it again but not on grainy VHS. I thought that after the success of Pollock that this might get ported over to newer media, but not so far....
Richard Jordan is wonderful as smarmy small-town big fish, but this is Harris' movie. And the flash is for real.
