It's like a whit stillman movie made in hell. a nietzschean yuppie exploits his 'friend' and a deaf woman to get what he wants. he's one real sumfabitch, but in a perverse way, the only TRUE person in the movie. he knows It's like a whit stillman movie made in hell. a nietzschean yuppie exploits his 'friend' and a deaf woman to get what he wants. he's one real sumfabitch, but in a perverse way, the only TRUE person in the movie. he knows what he wants and ruthlessly goes after it. his spineless associate betrays his own conscience for acceptance into jockdom, and the deaf woman, though conventionally a sympathetic figure, wants to give herself to the alpha male of the tribe rather than mate with a dorky and contrite twerp, a symbol of crippled manhood. of course, even the twerp's apology isn't entirely honest since he's attracted to her handicap for it props up his sense of power; bestowing sympathy--as a form of condescension--is also an exercise of power and superiority. the movie says you're damned if you do, damned if you don't. whther winner or loser, hardheaded or sappy, we're all wolves of a tribe. animals.

One of the all-time best. Aaron Eckhart's performance is one for the ages. Legendary.

The best movie of the 1990's. Overrated? Please.

For all of the talk about its examination of sexual politics and male cruelty, In the Comany of Men is really a study of the malice of people; men and women alike. Eckhart's ruthless white collar misanthrope may be without remorse and goFor all of the talk about its examination of sexual politics and male cruelty, In the Comany of Men is really a study of the malice of people; men and women alike. Eckhart's ruthless white collar misanthrope may be without remorse and go unpunished, but what's most unsettling about this movie is how even the victims of his manipulation are not completely without fault either. This is truly a nasty film that looks into the depths of the human soul and finds nothing worth rooting for. Expand
