Lotos's Review

Stupid is what stupid does


A question of a day: does any reality outside Forrest Gump's concsiousness exist?

It's strange. I watch this film for the fourth time and it affects me as much as a film can affect one.

Excellent play of actors, excellent characters, excellent director's and script writers' work. But all this seems natural with the message which the film carries. What message? I'll say shortly: I don't know. :)) I can't completely understand it during past several years.

Film has marvellously caught such a section of reality, that it became impossible to differ it from life. From what is usually considered to be life.

Forrest goes through all the main points of american madness of second half of XX century and stayes unaffected by them. It seems to me sometimes that the main hero of the film is this madness: all this hippi, pacifists, black panthers, followers of Doctrine of Forrest-Runner and old people, who during long years see life only through television screens. On this screen Forrest appears regularly and always - necessarily! - for a moment.

"Everyone defines his destiny himself, son", - Forrest's mother said.
"I always loved to cut grass", - says Forrest, - "and as I was a millionaire and I had everything, I cut grass for gratis".

And I still do not know what to think about looking at Forrest who goes round next circle on his lawn-mower.

Amazon.com Editorial Review

The Academy Award winner for Best Picture, Best Director Robert Zemeckis, and Best Actor Tom Hanks, this unlikely story of a slow-witted but good-hearted man somehow at the center of the pivotal events of the 20th century is a funny and heartwarming epic. Hanks plays the title character, a shy Southern boy in love with his childhood best friend (Robin Wright) who finds that his ability to run fast takes him places. As an All-Star football player he meets John F. Kennedy; as a soldier in Vietnam he's a war hero; and as a world champion Ping-Pong player he's hailed by Richard Nixon. Becoming a successful shrimp-boat captain, he still yearns for the love of his life, who takes a quite different and much sadder path in life. The visual effects incorporating Hanks into existing newsreel footage is both funny and impressive, but the heart of the film lies in its sweet love story and in the triumphant performance of Hanks as an unassuming soul who savors the most from his life and times.
