  • Editorial Reviews

    Dustin Hoffman is a 'triumph (People) in an Oscar®-winning* role, and Tom Cruise is 'terrific (ABC Radio) in a film that's fascinating, touching and full of smart surprises' (Newsweek)! Charlie Babbitt (Cruise) has just discovered he has an autistic brother named Raymond (Hoffman) and is now taking him on the ride of his life. Or is it the other way around? From his refusal to drive on major highways to a four minutes to Wapner meltdown at an Oklahoma farmhouse, Raymond first pushes hot-headed Charlie to the limits of his patience and then pulls him completely out of his self-centered world! But what began as an unsentimental journey for the Babbitt brothers becomes much more than the distance between two places it's a connection between two vastly different people and a poignant, profound and powerful film (Joel Siegel, ABC-TV)!

    Have you ever had to communicate with someone on a different wavelength as you; for example because he speaks a foreign language and you don't have an interpreter, or because he is unable to communicate verbally at all, or maybe just because you keep misunderstanding each other? If so, you know what a frustrating experience it is to have virtually no control over the situation and over making sure that you're actually understood. And in precisely this situation finds himself Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise), personification of the 1980s' yuppie, a used car dealer with major money problems whose only - tentative - personal attachment is to his current girlfriend Susanna (Valeria Golino). Because having learned that except for a few rosebushes and a vintage 1949 Buick Roadmaster his recently-deceased father has left virtually all of his considerable fortune to his autistic brother Raymond (Dustin Hoffman) - a brother he didn't even know he had - Charlie decides to kidnap Raymond from the Cincinnati facility where he lives, take him to California, and demand half the inheritance in exchange for his brother's return.

    Now, Charlie isn't the greatest communicator himself; at least as far as listening goes; he is used to talking people down, and if that alone doesn't do the trick, he starts to yell. This, however, just doesn't work with Raymond, who lives in a world of his own and, unable to express emotion in any other way, falls into a nervous tic when feeling threatened. So for the first time in his life Charlie has to learn to accept another human being for what he is, and work *with* his bewildering methods of communication rather than against them.

    Format:Blu-ray
    Barry Levinson's name is well-known these days mostly as a producer but he has directed a good number of films that people are familiar with. Films such as "Sphere", "Wag the Dog", "Sleepers", "Bugsy", "Toys", "Avalon", "Good Morning Vietnam", "Diner" to name a few. But for one film, Levinson earned his Oscar and that was in 1988 for "Rain Man". A story by Barry Morrow and a screenplay co-written by Morrow and Ronald Bass ("Snow Falling on Cedars", "Step Mom", "My Best Friend's Wedding", "Entrapment", "What Dreams May Come"), the film would also bring together America's top male actors Dustin Hoffman ("Tootsie", "Kramer vs. Kramer", "Ishtar") and Tom Cruise ("Top Gun", "Cocktail", "Risky Business", "The Color of Money").

    The film which was budgeted at $25 million, earned over $354 million (the film was the highest grossing film of 1988) and would win four Academy awards including "Best Director", "Best Picture", "Best Writing, Original Screenplay" and a "Best Actor in a Leading Role" for Dustin Hoffman.

    VIDEO:

    "Rain Man" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:85:1 widescreen). First, its important for me to remind everyone that this is a 1988 film and I've always had the opinion that many films from the '80s tend to have this aged look and sometimes appearances look soft. While for "Rain Man", the film does show its age in terms of film stock used, this is the best looking version of the film to date.

    There is a good amount of grain in this film but there is much more detail and edge enhancement can be seen at times. If anything, the clarity and detail is much more evident in the Blu-ray release and there appears to be some noise reduction utilized as there are some moments of softness.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Autistic!!!! November 23, 2007
    Format:DVD
    Rain Man is a truly special film that involves two brothers of two totally different worlds,mentally 'n so forth. However,Charlie has this thing where he's all about money even to the point that he tries to play his brother,Raymond,for "a sap." In other words,Charlie is willing to do whatever it takes to get "the lion's share"
    of inheritence...money and all!! To me,I'd say that's a shame because it is so sad to have to take advantage of a family member as a pawn in the game...especially if that family member has a mentally or developmentally disorder. I'd hate to think about what would happen if Charlie and Raymond were to never get along yet what Charlie would do to shake the cash out of Raymond's pockets,ya know?
    I'm pretty sure that Raymond got "picked on"...did Raymond ever get bullied,mocked,made fun of,etc.
    or did he just get left alone with only the burden of his own semi-normal brother(Charlie)with money-hungry out for blood issues just to get some cash on the side?!!
    I can only help but wonder on since he lived at Wallbrook
    in which I take it,is an adult foster care home or more commonly referred to as an AFC Home but you could only picture the part of if Raymond was in Special Education at one time or another...I bet he was the smartest student if he were a Special Ed. student since it's hardly ever that one comes up to an Autistic individual with so many advanced talents and/or abilities beyond belief!! I'm not disparging Autistic people as a catagory,mind you but I was amazed at Raymond's unique "powers" if you wish to call them "powers." All I have to say in mental terms is: "What a weapon!!" He's ahead of the ball game in his mental abilities on numbers(math),cards,knowledge on
