Rain Man is far from a washout but you can't help feeling all those missed opportunities raining down on you.

Rain Man's restraint is, finally, rather like Raymond's gabble. It discourages connections, keeping you out instead of drawing you in.

There's a great Jonathan Demme movie waiting to bust out of Rain Man.

The best films are those that manage to generate emotion in their audience without ever feeling phony or melodramatic. Rain Man does exactly that.
