Meet Joe Black - Movie Reviews - Rotten Tomatoes
Yes, at three hours, it's long. But it's beautifully written.
And the Thomas Newman score is devastatingly lovely. Finally, I have no idea how this movie didn't make Claire Forlani a giant star.
Meet Joe Black () - Rotten Tomatoes
Harrison M June 1, One of my all time favorite movies. It pulls you in and allows you to emotionally feel love, fear, death Beautiful cast but even better acting. I am forever in love with Anthony Hopkins description of love, while on the helicopter with Claire Forlani.
For anyone middle-aged and upwards, you'll probably get it, for anyone younger, you may not. For any father with daughters even onewho wouldn't want a beautiful relationship like Bill has with Susan, his youngest.
I am moved to tears by Parrish's huge character every time we watch it. Perhaps waiting for something spectacular, that never happens. Or are we hooked by the beautiful people?
Randy B February 26, Okay, only 19 years behind in watching this "epic" film. Hopkins, as always, nails his role.
Pitt and Forlani are also wonderful. However, I indulge my own subjectivity: I think that this is such a really powerful drama movie 2 watch, it is such a really sad movie 2 watch but this is such a fantastic drama movie 2 watch I think that brad pitt was just so fantastic throughout this movie as joe black the title character for this movie as he was so brilliant throughout this movie The Phantom Menace, it was reported that droves of Star Wars fans bought tickets for the film, only to leave after the trailer showed.
Most of William Parrish's country mansion scenes were shot at the Aldrich Mansion. Critical response The film received mainly mixed reviews by critics. Siskel and Ebert gave it "Two Thumbs Up", with Ebert adding "there's so much that's fine in this movie".
Edited version A two-hour version was made to show on television and airline flights, by cutting most of the plotline involving the Hopkins character's business. As Brest derided this edit of his film and disowned it, the director's credit was changed to the Hollywood pseudonym Alan Smithee. I think that Claire forlani from the brilliant cult classics Mallrats Brandi Svenningwas brilliant as the love interest of brad pitt throughout this movie as she was really good throughout this movie I think that this is such an enjoyable movie 2 watch, with a great cast throughout this movie Donna L August 23, Take a moment and step outside of everything you've ever known and see life through the simplistic yet magical moments exposed in this portrayal of death taking a vacation.
Dwain H August 18, Too long, too slow, too boring. Could have been a great 90 minute movie but it went waaaay beyond that.
I now use it to fall asleep when a bottle of pills wont work. Brad Pitt's performance is perfectly bizarre and eery. The highlight of the film.
