A journey through understanding and fellowship.
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 film makes me wanna cry and warms my heart. the last maple syrup scene made my day
I Have To Admit, I Went Into This Film Not Expecting Much, And Boy Was I Blown Away. This Movie Is Definitely A Masterpiece, The Acting From Dustin Hoffman Was Spectacular, The Soundtrack Felt Natural And The Way This Film Was Played Out Was Phenomenal. I Highly Recommend This Movie For Fans Of Film In General!
The strangest addition to the MCU so far
Glimpses of greatness in Babbitt's failures to understand. Cruise's filmography is often made up of Keanu Reeves-level paradigm shifts (‘I'm guilty?!’ in ‘Minority Report’, etc), but it's especially rewarding to see him grapple with stubborn wrong-headedness in ultra slow motion, a glimpse at the increasingly rare Vulnerable Cruise. Every year that passes makes this film less politically correct and more affecting, its scope unintentionally widening from Cruise to a general frame of mind – the whole horizon in our rear-view mirror.
Dustin Hoffman is Raymond, an autistic savant who lives in an institution in Cincinnati, and Tom Cruise is his huckster brother Charlie, an LA car dealer, who kidnaps him, hoping to get hold of some of the $3 million that their father has left in trust for Raymond's care. Hoffman keeps his actor's engine chugging and upstages the movie; Cruise's performance consists of not smiling too much-so as not to distract his fans from watching Hoffman. The director, Barry Levinson-it's his temperament- stretches out the scenes until they yawn. But the picture has its effectiveness: people cry at it. Of course, they cry at it-it's a piece of wet kitsch. With Valeria Golino; Ronald Bass was the principal screenwriter. Academy Awards: Best Picture, Director, Actor (Hoffman), Original Screenplay.

see Movie Love.
Literally, this is the best movie i have ever seen. An extraordinary acting from dustin hoffman which raised the emotional status of mine and extracted all the deep feelings i have!
I'm not gonna mention the fabulous soundtrack and the amazing script and bla bla bla.. Cuz the acting here has all the gratitude.
I rarely weep at movies, but this one made me do it. I really wish i meet a personality like "raymond" one day, so i can treat him with all the love and humanity he deserves!
People like "raymond" are not like us, they're more like angels roaming this pathetic world.
still holds up really good I loved this 1
This is a timeless classic, suitable for all viewers. There are surprises, the good and bad of human nature (all at once sometimes!). It will make you laugh, probably wince, and you will fall in love with "Rain Man". Definately in my all=time top 100 movies :)
Help me out with this one guys.
"It's Mission Impossible!" is the true peak of cinéma.
