    Nat comes off as flat-out crazy and more sad than amusing or heroic.
  2. 50
    Mary McDonnell, as Nat's patient wife, provides too-brief clarity as Nat goes off the rails, finally taking the movie with him.

    Written and directed by Richard Squires, Crazy Like a Fox provides Mr. Rees with the daftest role of a long and varied career.
  4. Reviewed by: Jim Ridley
    Whether you find the protagonist of Richard Squires's comedy-drama--a dangerous Confederate crackpot or an exemplar of principled defiance likely depends on which side of the Mason-Dixon Line you see the movie.
  5. 50
    Winning performances by Roger Rees and Mary McDonnell, as well as colorful Virginia locations, lift Crazy Like a Fox slightly above the TV-caliber script by its director.
