Audience Reviews for Films of Paul Newman
The Hustler: A classic in every sense of the word and one of my favorite movies. Paul Newman was flawless and created such an iconic role, Fast Eddie Felson. The film-making is flawless and the script is air tight. What I also love about it is the ability it has to juggle comedy/romance/drama/tragedy all in one without catching you off guard. Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid: The quintessential American western, perfect in every way. It is perhaps the most tastefully done, visually captivating movie of its time. Mainstream movies just don't get any more artistic, the visual style is extremely unique and a character in itself. Paul Newman and Robert Redford delivered knockout performances that have you siding with the outlaws. It's a fun movie, but one that delivers all the great aspects of the genre, leaving you in awe. The Verdict: Newman+Mason+Mamet=Perfection. This isn't just another movie about a courtroom case, it's about the people behind it. Paul Newman gave a performance that almost completely different from anything he'd done before, a truly vulnerable and wounded person. It was great to see James Mason give one last great performance, he was as ruthless as ever. The main reason I think I love this movie is that it's so lovable. There's no way you can't sympathize with Frank. It's a true redemption story. Sidney Lumet does a great job at nailing down a very dark part of Manhattan and giving the story the weight and power it deserves.
