Seems to take its name not so much from the Arlington Memorial Cemetery, where much of the action takes place, but from the stiffness of the characters it portrays.
There's a pervasive and worrying sense of the central issues being gently but undeniably fudged.
The most important missing ingredient is Mr. Coppola.
A handsome but fragmentary film that can't decide which story to tell.
Every moment is right, and yet the film as a whole is incomplete.
There's a curious ambiguity in Coppola's feelings about the soldiers and their life.
For want of a timeless message on the horrors of war, Coppola does indeed tell a compelling story of one man's battle on the homefront. Caan gives a stunning performance after a five-year absence from the movie screen.
Subdued war drama on life on the home front during the Vietnam war.
Unjustly underrated upon its release, Gardens of Stone is a quiet, respectful film filled with emotional power, exceptional acting (especially by Caan), and technical virtuosity.
Subtle and elegiac, Coppola's anti-Vietnam War meditation is one of the director's most misunderstood films.
"sheer dreariness directed with fists of ham"
Francis Coppola's 1987 Vietnam meditation was his best film in a while, though it's still something less than satisfying.
It's taken 20 (plus) years but Coppola's much maligned take on the effects of an unpopular war seems to have found it's relevance.
