This review is from: Lucas (DVD)
The death of Corey Haim prompted me to come and order this DVD. It was one of his best performances; thinking of it made me sad that he never found his footing as an actor during his adult years.
I realize that this is supposed to be my review and not Roger Ebert's, but I can't help but quote a couple of things he said. About Haim's performance in "Lucas": "He creates one of the most three-dimensional, complicated, interesting characters of any age in any recent movie. If he can continue to act this well, he will never become a half-forgotten child star, but will continue to grow into an important actor. He is that good."
Ebert listed it as one of the top 10 films of 1986. I agree with that assessment. It's a quiet, well-written, beautifully acted movie.
RIP, Mr. Haim.
