My Left Foot is a great film for many reasons, but the most important is that it gives us such a complete picture of this man's life.

For all his character's travails the film as a whole winds up surprisingly upbeat.

Much of the pricelessness of My Left Foot comes from Daniel Day-Lewis's spot-on portrayal of Brown, the first acting job that made critics and awards voters really take notice of him.

A bit rudimentary in form and style, but full of bracing performances and an admirably light-and-dark tone.

...a boisterous, joyous affair, often funny, often brawling, sometimes sad, but always affecting.

Not only does Day-Lewis master the physical aspects of the role, the minute-to-minute struggle of almost complete paralysis, he lives the painful genesis of an artistic character.

Inspiration is inherent in Brown's story, but Sheridan, co-screenwriter Shane Connaughton, and Lewis refuse to sanctify him.

It's easy to imagine what My Left Foot might have looked like in the hands of a lesser director like, say, Ron Howard.
