Quaid's solid performance holds the film's loose ends together. He's really very much at home on the range here...Ryan rises pretty much above her more usual perky, pretty image, giving a funky performance.
the whole movie rests on the interaction of the two characters and the appeal of the stars who embody them
A downbeat, elegiac mood piece and character study about angry, damaged people whose lives are as desolate as the dusty West Texas landscape they inhabit.
A nice, heavy movie, if a bit depressing.
Haunting film, with unexpectedly great supporting performances by Caan and Paltrow
A captivating thriller with three solid performances
The film starts better than you've heard, but soon gets worse than you predicted.
Explores the searing power of evil.
The best film of 1993. Seriously. Great breakthrough performance by Gwyneth Paltrow also.
Dry and a bit slow, but there are a few rewards to be found.
There are few pictures more deserving of critical revisionism.
Flesh and Bone is a stylish little surprise that boasts uniformly excellent performances.
[font=Century Gothic]In "Flesh and Bone", Arlis(Dennis Quaid) is a vending machine operator in rural Texas. His machines run the gamut from "Brainy Chicken" to condom dispensers. He has a regular schedule of dropoffs, pickups and women to take care of but no ambitions to spread his operations wider. But one evening, when attempting to order take-out food at a bar, he comes across a bachelor party where a stripper is scheduled to jump out of a cake, but Kay(Meg Ryan) has had too much to drink, and instead stumbles, vomits and passes out. After she wakes up the next morning and gets dressed, Arlis agrees to give her a ride home to Bayview.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"Flesh and Bone" is a very compelling, well-directed movie with some unexpected flashes of humor about whether nature or nurture shapes us the most as adults. The Texas countryside where time moves forward but not much changes is lovingly photographed. The movie is well-acted by a very capable cast.(Meg Ryan is an underrated actress, having performed well in "Hurlyburly" and "Courage under Fire". It is just when she acts cutesy that I have to reach for the air sickness bag. And Gwyneth Paltrow portrays dimwits well.) My main problem with the movie is that it all hangs on one very large coincedence. [/font]
