Always (Amazon Video)

5.0 out of 5 stars
Still one of my favorite movies. It is loosely based on A Guy Named Joe. That was Spielberg's favorite movie, which was the inspiration for Always. A Guy Named Joe was criticized by The Committee for Un-American Activities for being directed by a Communist, and for being ant-war. My favorite part is the whistling duet (you will have to watch the movie to know what I mean). Dreyfuss and Hunter are great, but I think Goodman brings a special sense of joy to this movie. Good story!

"Always" is a modernized version of the 1943 movie, "A Guy Named Joe". The remake is a comedy-drama directed by Steven Spielberg and features several cameos by Audrey Hepburn in her final performance. It stars Richard Dreyfuss, Holly Hunter, John Goodman and Brad Johnson, with a great supporting cast of extras.A quick synopsis: An aerial firefighter named Pete,(Dreyfuss) puts out forest fires with a big war surplus A-26 light bomber plane. Pete's reckless disregard for safety keeps his girlfriend Dorinda (Hunter) and best friend Al (Goodman) upset with him. Pete and Dorinda have some great moments in this film. Lots of chemistry there. Holly Hunter is adorable with a side of attitude. Enter Ted Baker (Johnson) and the action really begins. If you're searching for a romance/comedy/drama/adventure/fantasy, this is your movie. :)

It is made all the more poignant for me because my beloved brother departed this earth not too long ago and I wonder if he "visits" me from time to time...Spielberg's superb craft and technique is all in evidence here. He delivers wit, genuine pathos and irony, not only in the actors' deft delivery of dialogue, as would be the case with other, lesser directors, but in the VISUAL, his virtuosity with the camera, with light and with tricks in the editing (cutting on Audrey Hepburn's removal of the towel she is using to catch Richard Dreyfuss' hair during her giving him a haircut from the smoldering woods to a golden field, "Time is funny stuff" is pure magic). THIS IS CINEMA!The blu-ray has superb color and contrast. As with the release of American Graffiti and other Universal blu-rays, it appears a bit edge-enhanced and de-grained, but this is a minor nuisance in an otherwise gorgeous transfer. Bravo!
