I love how the relationship between the embittered colonel and the hard working do gooder classic nice guy school boy develops.

Of course I love the speech at the end.

This movie exposes hypocrisy. It works like a pamphlet for standing up for who you are and what you believe in.

It’s a movie about courage, integrity, loyalty and balancing caring for ourselves, caring for others.

It’s also about the price we pay for standing for something no matter the circumstances.

I love the dialogue. I never get tired of it.

The colonel’s condescending sarcasm is hilarious at times.

He’s blind, but his former zest for all pleasures life has to offer shines through in almost every scene.

The performances are impeccable.

It’s also the break through role of the actor Seymour Hoffman, who plays the part of a spoilt little rich kid brilliantly.

I don’t want to waste more words on it. Go watch it.

What was it about the nineties that led to so many great movies?
