What A Great Movie!
15 June 2004 | by ebender-1See all my reviews

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.
