A Perfect World

A Perfect World ★★★★

"The film contains more complicated ideas about manhood that emerge as it goes along. 'I don’t know nuthin’,' Clint confides to Dern in the film’s heartbreaking final line. 'Not one damn thing.' In a movie about the sins of fathers passed on to their sons, here’s the screen icon considered a dream daddy by at least two generations of moviegoers, admitting that he blew it." - WBUR's The ARTery, 04/09/2020
