Peter Weir, 1993 (9.0*)
After walking away from a passenger jet crash unharmed, Jeff Bridges becomes fearless of death. Thus psychologically transformed, his wife Isabella Rossellini no longer interests him as much as fellow crash survivor Rosie Perez, as a mother who blames herself for losing her baby in the crash. Rosie turned in her best acting performance which garnered her an Oscar® nomination for supporting actress.

This is my favorite film of Australian director Peter Weir, who always makes intelligent, thought-provoking films (Witness, Picnic at Hanging Rock, The Truman Show, Mosquito Coast), and this strong parable of survival and immortality is no exception.

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
