red panda eating bamboo

A movie

I watched Fearless last night (it stars Jeff Bridges as the survivor of a plane crash). I thought it was really good. Of course, I'm a dyed in the wool Peter Weir fan, and I think it's much easier to appreciate his movies if one knows his style. But I'm still wondering why this movie isn't more well known / more popular. It's not even available in widescreen format on DVD. It's good in pan-and-scan, but I'm sure it's lots better visually in widescreen.

And don't miss Tom Hulce's hilariously annoying performance as a grasping lawyer.
