5.0 out of 5 stars A powerful film, a great Jeff Bridges performance, 4 Jan 2012

This review is from: American Heart [DVD] [1992] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A very powerful, honest, un-sentimentalized look at a hardened ex-con
trying to build a life with his 12 year old son.

Jeff Bridges gives a towering performance, subtle, real, quiet, angry,
scary, withdrawn and heartbreaking.

The film and supporting cast around him often matches Bridges' high level of
work, although some of the sub plots involving Edward Furlong as the son feel
a bit more obvious and schematic than the grown-up world sections of
the film.

None-the-less, a powerful, honest look at how hard making it once
you're down really is.

It's very frustrating that this is only available on region 1 DVD in 4:3. The
film deserves better treatment. But despite that flaw this is very worth
seeing.

This review is from: American Heart [DVD] [1992] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This is what i would call a dark drama, following an ex-con and his son trying to find a better life for themselves while struggling with their surroundings.
Fantastic acting from Jeff Bridges and the cast.
This movie may not appeal with every audiance member but will find a place in the heart of some.
Good quality transfer onto dvd, definately a step up from the VHS release.
