“This film is one of the finest ever made, in my humble opinion, and the greatest display of Robert Duvalu0026#39;s acting abilities. This film is powerful and moving. An u0026quot;erau0026quot; piece, itu0026#39;s message resounds regardless.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe cinematography is beautifully done. The acting is top notch. The scenes between Metchum and his son are the most riveting, of course but the scenes between the son and mother are also quite touching and tender, and contrast wonderfully with the other scenes. And while this is a gripping drama, with very well acted round characters, there is humor too, and handled brilliantly.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTruly every movie library should have this film in itu0026#39;s collection.”
