Movie Info

Based on the virulently antimilitary play by David Rabe, Streamers is set in a basic-training barracks. Matthew Modine is among the raw recruits who alternate between strutting around like bantam cocks to snivelling like frightened children. To test one another's manhood, the recruits indulge in violent physical and verbal game playing. Special attention is given those whose skin color or outlook on life is at odds with the "standards" of the group. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

It goes partway toward realizing the full effect of a stage play as a film, then botches the job by the overabundant use of film techniques, which dismember what should be an ensemble performance.

Sure it's searing and intense, but so is a microwave oven.

... a different kind of filmed theater that combines the intimacy of the original play with a cinematic expressiveness.

What elevates the film above a dated topical discussion is Altman's imagining of the army barracks as a hothouse environment where tensions and fears play out in oddly manic outbursts%u2014and his direction of his actors accordingly.

The ensemble cast comes up smart with some fine spontaneous performances.

Audience Reviews for Streamers

An intense and well written drama that deals with matters like racism, homophobia, self-acceptance and the dehumanizing side of war, relying on a revealing dialogue and with strong performances by the entire ensemble cast, especially Michael Wright and George Dzundza.

I really didn't know what to think of the film. Other than the fact that it is a very effective drama. However, it was all over the place and I got dizzy trying to keep up with all the different plots. The acting was good but sadly this is not one of Robert Altman's best movies.
