I always have a great time revisiting this. Sly really did a good job in the main role, but I kinda paid more attention to Brian Dennehy the last time and was really impressed by his performance. Sure, he hammed it up at times, but he had some great moments here. Richard Crenna, on the other hand, wasn't very good.
This was a good film, and I could really appreciate the performances, the technique, and the tribute it wants to give to cinema. But that said, I was never overly enthralled by it. Remarkable in a lot of aspects, but it never hit close to me, to elevate it into A-list level.
