In Fearless, fear-not just overcoming it, but experiencing it-connects us to our deepest selves, and to each other.

...it's the sense of sadness that gives the movie its backbone.

Especially as acted by Jeff Bridges, in one of the best performances of a career laden with outstanding work, Fearless is a bottomless character study.

Bridges is fine, especially in the ethereal early moments, and manages throughout to convey an altered state of mind that rivets the viewer.

Not only is it a gripping, beautifully acted drama, but the action scenes are jaw-dropping.

Weir and Yglesias, who adapted his novel, don't shy away from dealing with the kinds of issues seldom portrayed in mainstream movies: Fear of death and fear of life after a traumatic airplane crash.

As often with Weir, there's considerably less here than meets the eye.

One of Bridges' greatest performances. WHEN will this man win an Oscar?

"Fearless" is like a short story that shines a bright light, briefly, into a corner where you usually do not look.

Bridges turns in another in what has become an astoundingly long list of brilliant performances. Using the simplest means imaginable, he steps into a role as nonchalantly as he might slip into his trousers.

There are times when "Fearless" really soars, thanks to bouts of good writing by Rafael Yglesias and direction by Peter Weir and a stellar performance by Bridges.
