Audience Reviews for The Border

  • Apr 09, 2008
    Great Nicholson and Keitel film that holds up to todays standards. A great morality piece and a fantastic story with great characters. I really need to see this again.

    A truly under-appreciated Nicholson performance. One of the three or four Keitel efforts I can actually stand to watch without cursing and spitting on the ground. Note to aspiring actors: hook up with Keitel's team, especially if you can't act. If you hire on, for instance, with Keitel's publicist and manager, you will have it made in the shade. <p> And "introducing Elpidia Carillo," no less. What a great movie in which for her to debut!
