Editorial Reviews

San Francisco architect Max Klein can see clearly now. He's been transformed ever since he stared death in the face - and discovered he was unafraid. Peter Weir (Witness) directs Fearless, the vivid story of how a near-death experience impacts the lives of three people. Jeff Bridges plays Max, more wildly alive and taking more risks than ever since surviving a plane crash. Isabella Rossellini is Laura, struggling to find in Max the man she married. And Rosie Perez, 1993 Academy Award nominee and Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago Film Critics Award winner as Best Supporting Actress, is fellow crash survivor Carla: alive, yet devastated by a grievous loss. It seems that no one can heal her pain. But then she meets the one person who fearlessly knows how.

5.0 out of 5 stars A film truly worthy of blu upgrade: November 9, 2013
By Jrum C.
Magnificent film, made even better in blu ray. For me, with a film of this caliber, just being able to own such a pristine print is wonderful. That being said, it would have been nice, but I am not missing extra features that are not included. English subtitles, 2.0 DTS-HD audio, and a trailer, that is all (and unlike dvd, blu IS widescreen, 1.85:1). To see how lovely this blu is, watch the SD trailer first. The skyline during the church visit, for example, is flawless in blu. This was not filmed digitally (I don't believe, for 1992), so it has a nice filmic quality, but wow! does it shine. I don't typically pay new top dollar for a release, but this is more than worth the $19 spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally - A Transfer Worthy of this Great Film! February 4, 2014
By KRabin
Verified Purchase
FEARLESS, the extraordinary film by the extraordinary Peter Weir ("Picnic at Hanging Rock," "The Truman Show," "Year of Living Dangerously," "Dead Poet's Society, etc. etc. etc.), and novelist/screenwriter Rafael Yglesias, originally came out on an analogue transfer DVD in 2003, panned and scanned at 4:3 instead of its correct 16:9. Many people do not know this film (or think it's the Jet Li film of the same name), because this film played in theaters for such a short time back in 1985. Most people who saw it in that small window said it was "life-changing" for them and that they never forgot it. I agree, and for years have been waiting for a good version of this unique film to be available. I went to a lecture by its cinematographer, Alan Daviau, at which he showed his 35mm copy of the film and said he had just supervised a new transfer for Warner Brothers. After years, the new transfer never materialized.

Now it has -- but only on blu-ray as far as I know. The blu-ray really does the film (and Daviau's cinematography, as well as Maurice Jarre's haunting score) justice. I am SO glad. It was the second blu-ray I bought, after getting my player a few months ago.

If you aren't familiar with the film, I URGE you to see it, even though it's very disturbing. It is essentially NOT violent, but it IS emotionally wrenching. It features performances by Jeff Bridges and Isabella Rosselini, as well as the most incredible performance Rosie Perez has ever given. It's a story you've never seen before with all kind of reverberations, including, in a way, metaphysical ones. The film will leave you stunned, but I think very glad you saw it for the performances, the unique story line, and whatever you take from the film in terms of its meaning for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Weir's best film March 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
A compelling and original story, featuring stellar performances by Jeff Bridges and Rosie Perez, ably supported by such wonderful performers the likes of Isabelka Rossellini, Tom Hulce, John Turturro and Benicio del Toro, this is, in my humble opinion, Peter Weir's best film. Whilst it didn't set the box office on fire it remains an unsung masterpiece. Full marks to Warner's for sending this into the Blu - I thought it unlikely to appear in this format for a long time. Imagine my delight!

5.0 out of 5 stars Peerless February 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
Watching 'Fearless' on Blu-ray is like seeing it again for the first time.

Sadly, I never got to see 'Fearless' in the theatre. My first viewing was on a rented VHS cassette, and for a long time I owned a poor-quality DVD of the film. Still, it was a movie I was compelled to watch now and again, a longtime favorite that never fails to move me. Watching it this time, in widescreen and with much of its original quality restored, made it a whole new experience.

'Fearless' opens with a dishevelled man, as he steps between rows of corn in a cornfield. In one arm he holds a baby, a young boy is holding his other hand. As he emerges from the corn onto an asphalt road, the camera pulls back to reveal the field behind him... the smoking wreckage and human debris of a commercial airplane which has just crashed.

With this memorable beginning, 'Fearless' quickly establishes a tone of simple beauty, honesty, and pathos in the face of disaster and tragedy, a tone which is maintained through every single scene. Though the plot of the film is important, this is a movie about people more than about events. The characters are what carry 'Fearless' to the end, and the changes they go through as the story progresses are what it's all about.

The main character is the man we first saw in the cornfield: Max Klein. Simply put, his world is turned upside down by the plane crash. Though he survived the crash (and in fact saved the lives of several others), he cannot accept the idea that he is still alive. He begins to experience his life as if he were an outsider to it. Something in him is changed, perhaps irrevocably so, and his journey is the main story of the film.

Max is played flawlessly by Jeff Bridges, in perhaps the finest and most nuanced role of his career.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic movie December 18, 2013
By Ted S

I've waited for this movie to come on Blu-Ray for many years, as the DVD was not letterboxed. It's a fantastic, entertaining and moving film. Jeff Bridges is amazing in it, as are Rosie Perez and Isabella Rosellini. Highly recommended!
