Nick Kline’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was my first Gray and I was meh on it back then. Thought it just a Hawks "three good scenes and no bad ones" movie. What a rube.
Great male feelings movie with a great Brando performance from Joaquin Phoenix and truly unique rhythms (that opening!). A man rocked by trauma trading one brand of alienation for another. Great brother dynamic (Wahlberg's reactions sell it just as much as Phoenix's bursts), and Duvall nearly steals it.
