Forever fighting....

This is a great movie. While "the scene" achieved great notoriety and some think that's all the movie is about, it's really about so much more. The desperation of the Irish to achieve freedom from England is very much on display here. Like other ancient feuds around the globe, the passion on both sides is evident in their willingness to do just about anything to advance their cause(s). It's also a powerful, if strange, story of human love. Complicated, deeply felt, real love. The kind that would make you sacrifice virtually everything to prevent the one you love from suffering pain. Excellent acting makes this a worthwhile investment of time. A film to remember and cherish.

A Love Story of Epic Proportions(SPOILERS)

I can't say anything that hasn't been said about this movie before. But I still wanted to add this review. This story took me for a spin. Sure, the direction and acting has flaws that damn near every 90s movie has. But it's 2+ hr runtime isn't enough to elaborate on everything this movie has to offer. I would've watched a 3+ hr version, were it ever made.

I wish I had the vocabulary and eloquence to explain all the things this film made me feel and all the themes I noticed and explored in my mind during and after. This is a movie I can watch over and over again. Much like Before Sunrise, I love the characters and despite lacking a significant backstory I find myself musing over who they are and how they lived. Keep an open mind about this film and ignore the hype of "the big twist" because it's so much more than just a twist gimmick movie.

Nicely shot and decently executed

This movie came out 25 years ago so I already knew about the so-called twist. I probably knew about it since Ace Ventura was released because it satirizes the aftermath of the reveal.

It holds up as a pretty good movie. Very good performance from Forest Whitaker doing what I thought to be quite a convincing British accent. Stephen Rea does a fine job as well as the protagonist. It's a shame that Jaye Davidson did not act much beyond this film because they are excellent in this role as Dil.

I think this movie was a bit of a sleeper hit and these days doesn't really get talked about. But it's one of Neil Jordan's better movies as I find his directing to be a bit clumsy by the 2000s. Expect an above average shot film with unique story.
