It's rare that a film manages to fufill the viewer's expected fear without any real gore or horror. Frailty while especially . . . well, freaky . . . not only makes the audience cringe in disgust from a father's honest love for his children, but also shows the depravity of a man insanely misdirected by "his" God.

Bill Paxton makes a well solid -- not by any means outstanding -- first attempt at the directing bug and cashes in. As good as his directing is, it can't match his acting (arguably his best to date) in which he protrays a villian who honestly loves his children and sees the right and goodness in his actions.

This is not a happy film. But if you want to enjoy a quality film, by all means, spend the money. (I went for an $8.50 :eek: matinee, but would easily recommend a rental, if you think you wait -- great movie but not necessary for the big screen)

wow...

I never had you pegged as a Merchant Ivory buff. I like the period costume your hero is wearing in the high-brow publicity release for this motion picture.

I wish I could go to matinees. Why didn't you post a poll querying those who thought they could wait for the video release against those who didn't think they could? That would've been interesting.
