A marvelous, subtly crafted elegy to a bygone era that balances its scenes of violence and gunplay with laconic humor.

Magic realism is a tricky thing to pull off in a movie, and Disappearances, the third of Mr. Craven's films based on Mr. Mosher's novels, only occasionally succeeds.

The beautifully photographed Disappearances is solidly old-fashioned entertainment.

The film is lovely to look at, but makes not a lick of sense.

If you're one of those people (like this reviewer) who can watch Kris Kristofferson do just about anything, you won't insist on the references being that solid.

Alas, the story descends into mystical mumbo jumbo.

It's an ambitious work and shouldn't be too readily dismissed for its semi-successful foray into spirit-land. There is much else to enjoy and a wonderful terrain to discover.

There's a special Boy Scout charm to it all that I was enchanted with.

The movie has a literary quality, and not just because everyone's always quoting Shakespeare.

Labored, a bit of backwoods magical realism that wants to soar but never takes off.

Craven never quite manages to make it all seem a smoothly integrated piece.

Craven layers the film's central narrative concerns with mounds of metaphorical gunk, most of which proves more ponderous than entrancing.

The story might sound fine on paper, but it didn't quite work out that well when filmed.
