"The characters are exceptionally well-drawn, and the actors shine." Movieline's Hollywood Life "[Williams] handles all of the elements of the story...with an equally sure hand." Premiere "[I]t's easily the most robust and compelling movie ever spun off from Irving's work." Entertainment Weekly "[The film] captures the essence of the book while finding its own path to the heart....You can't shut the door on this spellbinder. It gets into your head." Rolling Stone "Jeff Bridges has long been one of the greats of American film acting....[Basinger's] performance is delicately filigreed and, along with Bridges', it makes THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR an unassuming pleasure."Los Angeles Times "Bridges and Basinger are powerful in the central scene..."Chicago Sun-Times "Williams sidesteps sentimentality to deliver his tragi-comedy with a delicious lightness of touch, making THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR the first Irving adaptation really to capture the author's playfulness and compassion."

"The Coens direct TRUE GRIT with a light touch....It's simultaneously rollicking and grave, alternating moments of fine dark humor with startling violence..." -- Grade: A-A.V. Club "[A]lternately somber, funny, elegiac and steadfastly if unconventionally moral....The Coens use the landscape beautifully, capturing the majesty of ripply baptismal rivers and craggy, charred-bone trees alike."Movieline "The best of the new TRUE GRIT comes from the actors who bring their vivid characters to life....With typically impeccable dusty-Western cinematography by Roger Deakins..." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly "Joel Coen and Ethan Coen fill the film with self-conscious good humor -- hey, it's the Coen brothers -- and the charmingly old-fashioned locutions of the Charles Portis novel."Wall Street Journal 3.5 star out of 4 -- "The casting is always inspired and exact. The cinematography by Roger Deakins reminds us of the glory that was, and can still be, the Western."Chicago Sun-Times 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]ll credit to Damon, who plays down the Texan's vanity and braggadocio, leaving just enough of it in evidence to be funny without being off-putting."Total Film Included in USA Today's "10 Best Films Of 2010" -- "The Coen brothers fire on all cylinders with this remake of the 1969 Western..."USA Today "[O]ne of their most broadly entertaining films yet....[The Coen brothers] worked hard, and successfully, at serving the buoyant novel as well as being true to their own black comic brio."Los Angeles Times "[B]oth musically and visually, TRUE GRIT is a parable about good and evil. Only here, the lines between the two are so blurred as to be indistinguishable, making this a true picture of how the West was won or -- depending on your view -- lost."New York Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "TRUE GRIT has sweep and scope and entertainment value to burn..."Washington Post "Joel and Ethan Coen have pulled off an impressive feat: repurposing a classic film with their idiosyncratic blend of dark, deadpan humor and palpable suspense..."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he Coens have crafted a vastly entertaining Wild West show that is memorable in every particular."Rolling Stone "[T]he brothers clearly enjoy adopting Portis's dry plainspoken idiom....Bridges sounds as if he's talking through his collar, in a vocal performance that's entertaining no matter what he's saying..."Film Comment 5 stars out of 5 -- "TRUE GRIT is really about Jeff Bridges, giving another peerless performance for the Coens....Certainly with TRUE GRIT, he's done great work in a great film."Uncut "[T]he production, by their regular team, is formally superb....The Coens inject something of its macabre fairytale timbre, retaining the book's grotesque touches and adding more."Sight and Sound22.52853

Watch this performance to see shambling executed with nonchalant grace and a seemingly out-to-lunch character played with fine comic flair..."New York Times "...The Coens are able to create wickedly funny eccentrics and possess the ability to energize certain actors to inhabit them completely..."Los Angeles Times "...A masterpiece of anti-storytelling..."Entertainment Weekly Ranked #7 in Rolling Stone's "Top 25 DVDs Of 2005' -- "[T]he prize in this Coen Brothers 1998 goodie is still Jeff Bridges..."Rolling Stone "Joel and Ethan Coen's now-classic comedy is an absurdist neonoir film about mistaken identity....[A] big sweet teddy bear of an entertainment..."Wall Street Journal22.51577
