Editorial Reviews

Richard Gere, Lena Olin and Anne Bancroft star in this compelling story about a man on the verge ofself-destruction who is saved by love. Gere gives a show-stopping performance as Mr. Jones, a manic-depressive who, during his emotional highs, is funny, creative and charming. Whether shocking the stuffy symphony audience when he rushes onstage to conduct Beethoven, or impulsively taking a bank clerk on a romantic escape, Mr. Jones is a man no woman can resist, including Dr. Libbie Bowen (Olin),the concerned therapist assigned to his case. Romantic, passionate and intensely real, MR. JONES isa spellbinding testament to the power of love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent with many funny, touching moments June 11, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I'm M-D so take that into consideration. Gere doesn't get enough credit for his acting because he has his own persona like John Wayne and critics can't get over this. His is an outstanding performance, trust me. Lena is my favorite actress to watch and listen to so factor that in also. There are just so many funny scenes in this movie! (And a few oddities; Gere is no carpenter--you hammer nails with your wrist, not your arm.) Fun moments: Gere quoting from Alice In Wonderland while playfully teasing Olin's stock psychologist demeanor, the dialogue in and around the car ride, the table tennis sequence is priceless, in fact all of the dialogue between these two excellent actors is worth watching. Two outstanding dramatic moments are 1)the point of Gere's discovery of Olin's prying into his past(and catching him in a chilling lie)and 2)the subsequent confrontation in the rain; this is Olin at her--or anyone's--best...economical and searing. The only major misfire in this movie is the sexual involvement...should have been platonic but this is easily one of Hollywood's best efforts from the 1990s. I bought it. Aaaahhh, Leeena!! Yum

3.0 out of 5 stars love element took away from Gere's performance! September 27, 2000
By Shelly
Format:VHS Tape
Gere is great at portraying the extremes of bi-polar disorder, but the film is lacking in two major areas. One is the boring doctor/patient relationship and the other is the fact that bi-polar patients also exhibit weeks, months, and even years of "normal" behavior. I wish the film dealt more with the difficulties of having relationships with family, friends, and lovers. Bi-polar disorder is a serious one and medication is a must in order to balance yourself. The movie should have shown some of the struggles of finding the right medication for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie about a fascinating mental disorder August 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I am a fan of Richard Gere, and I came across this gem a few years ago by word of mouth. This is a wonderful movie that tackles a thorny mental disorder that is receiving much attention today -- bi-polar, manic depressive disorder. It seems that bi-polar sufferers, despite their having a classified "mental disorder", are often exceptionaly creative, brilliant individuals. Many of our great artists, writers, painters, and musicians were (are) manic.
Mr. Gere does a fantastic job of portraying such a brilliant/unstable manic sufferer, and really brings the disorder, with all of its twists and turns, to life. The story is true to the struggles and realities of manic sufferers, and uses wonderful images of planes crashing overhead, tightrope walks, and grandiose symphonies that metaphorize what it must be link to be manic. The story veers only in its hollywood insistence on the highly unlikely patient-therapist romance.
Five stars for a compelling and original performance by Richard Gere, and a movie that brings to light the fascinating and devestating consequences of manic depression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise :) December 8, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This movie looks as though it will be another one of those trite, over-simplified stories of a mentally ill man. Surprise! Barring the Hollywood idea that all therapists sleep with their patients, this is a great movie that accurately depicts a serious and complex mental illness. I will say that were a therapist to become romantically involved it would probably be with a bipolar patient because their manic cycle is so exciting and exhilirating after endless lifeless burdened people. Gere is astoundingly accurate in his portrayal of both the manic and depressive cycle of bipolar - impressive. A great movie!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best perfomances with Richard Gere! July 28, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is about R.Gere who plays of course Mr.Jones, he is manic depressive. He is a really charming man. He comes on a hostpital and fall in love with his doctor(the brilliant swedish actresses Lena Olin). The troubles starts when they are sleeping together,(cause that he is pacient and she is a doctor)........ I was allready a Richard Gere fan when I saw this, BUT even then I was suprissed! a internet friend adviced me to see the movie, and I saw it, and I THOUGHT WOW! This movie is sooooooooo good, it has a deep message, I think what R.Gere is trying to say is that we should respect people for who they are, and that people who have Manic Depressive, are just as intelligence as people who dont have it. He is ECXELLENT even people who are not into R.Gere loves him in this movie. It is very sad, I sure got tears in my eyes, but also have funny moments too. Lena is also a good actresses, I think she is doing a great job(People from Scandinavia may remember her from "Hamilton" with her main language he he). If you loves R.Gere as an actor just as much as me, then watch it, if you dont, then still watch it, it is a movie you will never forget!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, Charming and Romantic June 25, 2004
Format:DVD
This is a pretty good movie I thought. Richard Gere plays Mr.Jones a man who suffers from manic depression who has suicidal tendencies. When I saw it I thought this is one of Richard Gere's best performances in a long time. He really did a great job and it is probably the best acting that I've seen him do in quite awhile. Lena Olin is also very good as the psychiatrist who takes an interest in him both as a patient and in the personal sense. I really liked this movie and have added to my movie collection. It is one of those rare movies that you can see just about anytime. Overall is a good movie but if you need more convincing than that then see it beause of Richard Gere he is excellent in this film and that should be reason enough I think.
