Now there's nothing wrong with uplift, except that exhortations customarily are banal. That is, the end is nearly destroyed by the means.
Richard Bach's best-selling parable for freshmen becomes on screen a very spelled-out allegory, complete with flat voice-overs and pretentious Neil Diamond soundtrack.
This has got to be the biggest pseudocultural, would-be metaphysical ripoff of the year.
Visually uneven, this film captures only partially the spirit of the best seller upon which it is based.
The cinematic equivalent of that girl you might have met circa 1973 who insisted that the dog that just evacuated his bowels on your sidewalk was 'expressing his creativity.'
Bartlett's background as a documentary film-maker is an advantage for a film that doesn't require any actors but a liability when it comes to adapting Bach's fiction
Truly one of the most boring pictures ever done but with enough attractive photography to merit your brief attention.

Much of the soundtrack is given over to dialog so that we can hear the thoughts of Jonathan, his conversations with others, the pronouncements of the elders. It is all pretty bad.
Hall Bartlett's attempt to bring this beloved novel to the big screen misses the mark. I fully expect Pixar to take a stab at this someday, hopefully with much better results.
