Rain Man (1988)


When this was new, few of us knew of neurodiverse folks. So the setup as a road movie where our bad soul gets redeemed worked. If you allow the genre. We were all amazed as Hoffman’s portrayal.

Neither is unusual now, which I suppose is progress. Seeing it now in 2022, I am struck by how artless this is. How little of an environment is developed. I can’t even recommend it as worth watching.

Cruise is good. Action films took him away from a great career.
