Tom Hanks-A-Thon: Film #16
"and there it was…a simple wrong turn."
And here it is…the Heaven’s Gate of the ‘90s.
Well, except for the fact that Heaven’s Gate was actually a decent movie, that was wrongfully accused.
As for Hanks, well….It’s always darkest right before the dawn. He’s definitely not the problem with this film, but unfortunately it marks the low point of his career. The good news is that his Golden Hot Streak is just about to begin…
And for the record. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but outside of a few good films, I think De Palma is massively over-rated and this film stands as my 'Exhibit A’
For supporting evidence, please refer to 'Exhibits B & C’: The Black Dahlia and Mission to Mars.
