This is a fabulous film. Emotionally deep, flawlessly directed and acted, without a false note throughout.

Jeff Bridges is (as always) excellent as a man who has undergone a transcendent experience so profound he cannot find his way back to his real life and world. Rosie Perez is not always my favorite actress, but here she is deeply moving as the guilt-racked, nearly destroyed mother of a dead child. The interplay between these two as they relate to each other and cannot relate to their families is told simply and eloquently, building to a shattering emotional climax.

Throw in terrific supporting performances by Isobella Rosselini as Bridge's loving wife who wants to reach him but cannot find the key to understanding his experience, Tom Hulce as a weasel lawyer, Benecio Torres as Rosie's husband who sees no harm in getting money for the tragedy and you have a full cast of three dimensional characters.

Oh, and there is a frightening plane crash that is grippingly done.

First rate in all departments, I originally thought this DVD needed to be in widescreen, but I have been advised that Pan and Scan is not used, and what you get is pretty much the movie as it was presented in the theatre. Others say no. I agree with many of you that a better presentation of this film would be nice (Criterion?). It is a film of great depth and beauty and well worth your while.

Fearless is like no other movie, it treads in dangerous water. The story follows a plane crash survivor and the trauma that affects him and changes his day to day life. In many ways, the viewer comes to realize that what Max Klein is going through is actually far worse than being killed in the crash he survives. Fearless is a life affirming experience and an important overlooked film. Jeff Bridges may be the most underrated American actor of his time and he turns in another stellar performance here. I was also surprised by the range of Rosie Perez who gives a great performance as a crash survivor who loses her 2 year old son. Peter Weir is a master director and the use of sound in this film is astonishing. This movie has one of the best endings I have ever seen. Buy this DVD.

This is a "change your life" type of film.
A survivor of a plane crash must come to terms with this new and improved, awakened and liberated version of himself, this version of himself that has suddenly been unburdened of a lot of timidity and fearful emotional baggage he'd been lugging around through his adult life.
And those around him must also come to terms with this radically changed person that has emerged in the wake of his Near-Death-Experience.
The movie is beautifully acted. Bridges' performance is exceptional, perhaps his finest. As are the performance given by Perez and Rossellini and the rest of the cast. Weir's directing is superb and sublime. The script is a beautiful distillation of finer points of the novel of the same name; and the use of time in this novel is brilliant. And the music ................. what can I say: this is one of my favorite soundtracks.
This is movie of profound substance, profound enough to disturb, to awaken, to cause one to question one's life, perhaps even to effect real change. As Kakfa wrote, in a letter to a friend, "I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. We need the books that affect us like a disaster, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us." I think Kafka would have really liked this film as it has high ax potential.
Very highly recommended.

The jet is in a dive toward the earth. It is out of control and cannot be saved. Can anyone survive the impact? What if you were on the plane and fate brought you through? That is the drama - how to live with the reality that you lived while hundreds of others died.
Jeff Bridges, as Max Klein, survives. Once the plane is grounded, he has the strength of mind to get others off the plane, and he is a hero. He does not feel like a hero, but rather like he cheated death. Yet, survival means he must take a complex journey to find his inner peace and equilibrium.
He helps Rosie Perez (Carla), who was ripped apart by the knowledge that she was responsible for her infant son's death. His wife (Isabella Rossellini) cannot understand his emotions or his journey, and is alienated and jealous of the new friendship with Carla. Nothing shows the break with reality for survivors as well as this trio's relationship
If you have ever experienced an event that, by all known logic should have killed you but did not, then this movie is for you. It is not easy living with the fatalistic view that "when it's time, it's time..." but for those of us who do; this movie is a revitalizing look at life.
This is great drama, not a sugar coated action thriller, but a look at humanity.

See Fearless.
It details the experience of two west coast airplane crash survivors. In one of the most effective structural devices I've ever witnessed in a film, the movie begins a few minutes after the crash and ends at almost the same point, using sharply intercut flashbacks to circulate the story.
Jeff Bridges and Rosie Flores are the two survivors who can't quite resurface into the banality of society, with Isabella Rossallini and Benicio Del Toro as family members either intentionally or unintentionally attempting to pull them back from a green state somewhere between dead and living.
The mood of the film is very introverted, much is communicated in poetically short sharp sentences and sublime moments. Scenes resonate: Bridges walking dangerously into traffic at the beckoning of a familiar light, Rossallini torturing John Turturro at a dance class, Flores attempting to last out a survivor's reunion.
Personally, the film's real truth is its ability to connect with powerful lifelong experiences and beliefs. The feeling of skittering through life outside the bounds of 'normal living' with friends and acquaintances gently (and sometimes rudely) attempting to tug me in is so accurately represented here. And the notion that most people are not consciously aware that they are alive and use their finite resource with little care.
This is not a show loaded with greeting card sentiments. See it.
