A hard watch, but very good. Direction, camerawork, editing and Willem Defoe – wonderful! A sad picture of poverty and lack of education. Impressive acting of a Catch 22 situation. Amazing acting by the children – rather disturbing in fact. Another f…..g tragedy. An unexpected child’s eye view of the world. A hard watch but superbly acted. Brilliant acting. Do we need a long film to get the message? Family from hell in the shadow of Makebelieve. Loved it! Need more films about real USA technicolour! Too much screeching. Needed a Ken Loach. Sad story – a downward spiral. Children’s acting excellent. A series of bad quarters of an hour with the occasional light moment. The darker side of the Magic Kingdom. Kept wondering about the helicopter! Rather depressing otherwise. Sociology was never much fun. Living the American Dream …. Land of the Free! A for the children’s acting. D for the film. Although the acting was good it was just one depressing film. Poor long-suffering Bobby … poor everyone. Terrible.
