Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
One of the best road trip films ever made. Tom Cruise + Dustin Hoffman = perfection.
God-DAMN it Cruise! You had a golden ticket! You had a golden chance to make your way! And you fucked it up! YOU FUCKED IT UP! You could have been the next Redford but instead you decided you were going to devote your life to believing in an evil space overlord that trapped a bunch of alien souls in a prehistoric volcano. And thetans. Next thing you know, you're jumping up and down on the Oprah show, denouncing the entire mental health profession. Now you're a one-man definition of irony. Good job there Maverick!
Review In A Nutshell:
Rain Man does not convey themes or a narrative of grand significance, it does not disintegrate the barriers towards mental illness, nor does it innovate the medium, it exists simply in its desire to deliver an intimate narrative, one that strikes those that allow their guards to be lowered, to witness the changing moulds of its leading characters, a relationship that endures through trials and glories, a development that allows itself to be validated. Initially Rain Man may not seem as penetrating as it could be, but never for a moment does it strike a dull chord, constantly interacting and radiating an effect on its audience, it never lazily stamps itself with crowd-pleasing sensibilities but instead…
"He's capable of a lot more than you know!"
One of my favorite films of all time. The way that this film brings out the true meaning and reality of a man and his brother who has autism. A truly emotional film that gets me so into it, that I cry every time that I watch it. Some of the reasons why I think so highly of this film, is that I have personal experience. With my sister having autism, I feel that I am able to truly capture and get into the brilliance and mastermind designed in this cinema. I could not critic this picture in any other way. One way that this film was able to do so…
Barry Levinson’s Rain Man follows in suit with his recent efforts of candied Hollywood Drama’s/Comedy’s, but is carried further than its traditional premise via a fascinating and touching screenplay and a remarkable performance at its centre.
The films portrayal of autistic sufferers is honest and informed without feeling too outlandish, with the struggles of carers and family dealing with suffers indented into the plot. But the focus lies on the relationship between the leads. Charlie is an initially unlikable, savagely selfish yuppie played strongly by Cruise. His cold demeanour is difficult to deal with at first as someone seemingly without good intention, but he is brought back to humanity by Raymond. It’s not often that an actor as well-known and…
"You were in the window. You waved to me, "Bye bye Rain Man", "Bye bye.""
Rain Man is a surprisingly unsentimental film that mixes drama and comedy with successful results. In lesser hands this film could be so mawkish but it works because Tom Cruise's character, Charlie Babbitt is a completely self centred prick. His estranged father has passed away and on being delivered the will Charlie is incensed to hear that his fathers $3 Million dollar estate has been put in a trust fund. This then leads him to the institution where he finds a brother he never knew he had.
Charlie essentially kidnaps his brother Raymond (Dustin Hoffman). With a complete lack of understanding for his brothers condition…
this was solid. Pretty 80s style cheesy a lot of the time, though
Rain Man is the story of a callow man meeting his artistic brother for the first time. Tom Cruise gives a very strong performance in this one movie, but Dustin Hoffman steals the show. The film deserves its1989 Academy Award for best picture and is particularly heartwarming. It is worth every minute of your time.
this was actually really sweet
id totally use my high functioning autistic brother to count cards too though
When he found out about Rain Man i nearly died D':
i can't believe tom cruise was this hot
I watched this because I figured I should at some point. It was actually pretty good, I was expecting it to be all uplifting music and heartfelt nonsense but no, it was quite grounded, and Tom Cruise's character goes through a reasonably belivable and natural arc. Nice.
A formulaic but no less compelling depiction of acceptance and learning to love through the acquiesence of material wealth.
Apparently Rain Man was the highest-grossing film of 1988. I doubt a film like this will ever have such distinction for a long time..
"I'm gonna let you in on a little secret, Ray: K-Mart sucks."
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Rain Man is an amazing movie.
I've been meaning to watch it for ages, as I wanted to know if it deserved all its Oscars. It sure does. A heartwarming and moving tale of two brothers, it had me hooked from start to finish.
The acting is phenomenal. Hoffman never falters, and is completely immersed in his character. He is so loveable that you can't help but become emotionally attached to him, and forgive him for his tiring repetitiveness. From reading other reviews, Cruise seems to get lost in Hoffman's shadow, but he was also fantastic and deserves praise. At first, we meet this hot-headed, selfish…
