  1. The movie looks like far more than a million dollars and it offers the kind of smart, picaresque good time you get from books like "The Reivers" and "Huckleberry Finn" and movies like "Bronco Billy" and "Bonnie and Clyde."

    Really interesting and dense take on a sort of New England Western genre. Kristofferson's really good as this sort of force of nature, torpedoes-be-damned whiskey smuggler, and the supporting cast is all strong as well. Some parts seem to come out of nowhere, but overall a very successful film. Full Review »

    Incomprehensible and not well put together.

    Saw it at a film fest where I go to school, horribly shot, horribly acted and written even worse. Avoid at all cost, may be the worst piece of trash I've ever seen. The book may be all well and good, but this was not. Full Review »
