If Redford had left out a few of the waffling, undecided characters and drawn his dramatic lines more strongly, the film might have been a lot more powerful.

Fairly choked with good intentions, whimsy, touches of fantasy, and cardboard liberal stereotypes.

Redford's film sustains a slow mood of simpatico amiability and photographs the landscape with moony or golden washes that are perhaps hard to dislike, but is slain by its adherence to an outdated populist mythology.

The film is very big on sunsets and sunrises. It also has a touristy appreciation for all manner of things folkloric. What it doesn't have is dramatic coherence or backbone.

Redford and company have put a quirky twist on the material, investing it with a quasi-mystical aspect as well as some raw comedy.

Who'd of thought that a battle over water rights would make for such an interesting tale?

Picaresque tale set in a small Hispanic town where a developer's idea of progress threatens to change the community completely.

Redford and his crack cast of familiar gringos and less-familiar locals had an infectiously good time making it.
