Disappearances delightfully fudges the line between an old-fashioned boy's adventure tale and a distinctly adult postmodern Western.

It's an ambitious work and shouldn't be too readily dismissed for its semi-successful foray into spirit-land. There is much else to enjoy and a wonderful terrain to discover.

There's a special Boy Scout charm to it all that I was enchanted with.

The movie has a literary quality, and not just because everyone's always quoting Shakespeare.

If you're one of those people (like this reviewer) who can watch Kris Kristofferson do just about anything, you won't insist on the references being that solid.

Though set in Vermont in the 1930s, this has the feel of a Western -- one with mystical overtones -- and provides a great role for Kris Kristofferson, who's looking well weathered these days.

A frontier spirit and a strong connection to the landscape inform the piece, which aims not to wow but to immerse the viewer in a mystical, hardscrabble, bygone world.
