Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Each of its miserable characters, especially Mr. Savage's Rheems, is a case study in a film that hits you like a strident polemical essay.
Fresh: Gordon's way with actors and with screen storytelling is as impeccable as ever.
Fresh: Sheridan (who also produced) is well cast as the good-looking, rugged Harry, and his performance is certainly adequate.
Fresh: David has honed this script for 30 years, and every word he utters is momentous. Handsome Harry transcends its somewhat melodramatic narrative.
Handsome Harry, good film, needed a much better title
Outstanding material and what a cast of players! Yes it could have used a bit tighter edit and much better title choice! Ooverall this film was overlooked lkely because of its sub-theme but the story works and I'm sure has played out in real-life before. I enjoyed the ending immensely where after all the years, the truth finally surfaces. The journey thru each man's life and how they have been impacted by what they did, even subconsciously, is quite a lesson in both life and karma.
