Field of Dreams Reviews
Listening to a strange voice he heard in his field one evening he builds a baseball field and baseball legends of the past appear. The voice says "build it and he will come". After almost having to sell his home and at the end of a long journey he ends up reconciling with his Father, something he never had a chance to do before he died and baseball was common ground.
Field of Dreams was a sentimental but enjoyable movie.
Solid movie for the time. Its a bit dated and left me wanting more (which in a stand alone isn't great).

*On a different note: Richard Corliss, from TIME, presented a poorly thought out analysis of the film. He criticizes reactions of men to the effects of athletics on the psyche. His reaction towards Field of Dreams is not an uncommon one. His reasoning is heavily invested in an insensitive attitude towards the movie's framework, but my criticism of Corliss' review is not over the way the movie made him feel. His necessity to generate justification wasn't intellectual.

It's a warm, whimsical, feel good film with a good performance from Kevin Costner. But this is too much of an American film that outsiders can't properly relate or call good.
