An adaptation of the w p kinsella book. People that i tell to watch it and haven’t seen it are always like, “who’s in it,” and i have to tell them matthew mcconaughey. Mary harron, the director, has said that it wasn’t a dream, and that this interpretation (that it actually happened but no-one cares) is the entire point of the story. As it happens, i don’t much like either of these myself, but for different reasons.
Why filming in oregon?
It takes its time, eastwood shoots it wonderfully well (reportedly only finishing the edit less than two weeks before opening day – and that’s before digital distribution), and costner deserved far more credit than he ever got. If you go to the lincoln or jefferson memorials in washington, you are invited to look up in admiration.
