Critic Reviews for Carried Away
Tries to incorporate almost film-noir elements into a heartland love story. The blending feels inorganic; and composer Bruce Broughton doesn't help matters by coating every moment with a repetitive, syrupy theme.
An earnestly well-meaning film whose adult characters have a refreshingly grown-up perspective on their choices in life.
Think Dennis Hopper has played too many crazies? Well, you'll wish he'd stuck to blowing up buses after you see him in Carried Away.
Everyone in the film -- even the teenager -- is more intelligent and articulate than is usually permitted in American movies, and having gotten themselves into an emotional tangle, they go to work getting themselves out again.
Carried Away is erotic, but it's also thoughtful and intelligent, and, coupled with Hopper's extraordinary performance, that's reason enough to be carried away by this motion picture.
