Hackman is wonderful as an inarticulate man tense with the struggle to curb a flaring, mysterious anger.

Shameless, yes, but open your eyes, close your mind, sit back and enjoy.

Bobby Knight would not be amused, though Tark the Shark might've had a good laugh at the naive masquerade.

Pic belongs to Hackman, but Dennis Hopper gets another opportunity to put in a showy turn as a local misfit.

This film's very lack of surprise and sophistication accounts for a lot of its considerable charm.

The movie's enormous craftsmanship accumulates till you're actually seduced into believing all its Pepperidge Farm buncombe. That's quite an achievement.

Even though we've seen it all before, Hoosiers scores big by staying small.
