Editorial Reviews

Donald Baines (Academy Award® nominee and two-time Golden Globe® winner, Kirk Douglas) is a successful Hollywood director nearing death whose life was filled with fame and riches but devoid of love. Haunted by the memory of the son he abandoned and never knew, he is given the opportunity to see three views of his son s journey, each representing a different period in his life. Donald bears witness to the impact that his absence had in son s life and in his inability to find love. Ultimately he is offered the opportunity to alter the outcome of his son s life in this haunting yet beautiful tale of love and redemption.

This is an incredible movie. Totally engrossing, well-acted, meaningful, spiritual, with action, romance, and a father-son relationship (or lack thereof)....fabulous! Kirk Douglas plays a movie director near the end of his life. He is taken into an other-worldly cinema, where he watches scenes from the life of the son he never had any contact with, and deeply regrets his lack of involvement in his son's life. The story captured my emotions tremendously. It's both heart-wrenching and uplifting. See this movie!

ILLUSION

Have you ever sat around and wondered to yourself if your life was a movie, something that was being recorded from all angles and edited together once you go. For anyone who has ever thought about that this film is for you because it is all about that concept. I honestly bought this movie based on the fact that Ted Raimi is in it, and even though I was sure it was possibly only a cameo I still had to have it. Thankfully not only is he in the film for a good portion of it he is also a part of a huge moment, and to my surprise the film is also really good. The film while it does touch on many things is really all about the bond between a father and son regardless of whether or not they were together, and about love between two people who were destined to be no matter what got in the way and how long it took.

The story is about a famous movie director that has made a very good living and is nearing his curtain call, the thing is he has no one to leave his empire to because he abandoned his son and the child's mother many years ago. As his time grows closer second by second a friend of his shows up that just so happens to be a dead friend of his, this man it turns out runs the movie theater in heaven. He is in charge of putting people's lives on movie reels and editing them down into the most important parts of their life. It is here that the dying filmmaker is given the opportunity to watch three reels taken from his long lost son's life. These reels take us on three different journeys through the young man's life, each dealing with him and his true love and the difficulties that they face.

The first story is his son in his teenage years as a geeky kinda kid who is the outsider, the cool kids just ignore or pick on him ala every teen movie ever.

What a wonderful movie. I loved it so much that I never want to see it again, but I know that eventually I will pick this movie back up and watch it again. I know what you're thinking, She's crazy what's she talking about?
What I am talking about is simply this, the movie made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me think all about the things that I did in life up until now. It made me think about those I left behind and or whom left me behind. It made me feel things that I did not want to feel, that I thought I had l gotten over. I do not think that I could handle watching this movie again, but I know eventually I will give it another watch or two, or thee because it was that great. I loved it.

The concept of turning this French play into a movie was challenging and I think it was done very creatively. It's really a love story about father who gets to know his son a little too late.. almost. Kirk Douglas is a dynamic actor even in his 80's and a joy to watch. Iam not sure why Bryan Cranston's name is listed under the title as he has a small part. I really enjoyed this movie and it gets better the more you see it.

An interesting movie about what is important in life and missed opportunities. Good for Kirk Douglas having the courage to make this movie right after his stroke. Was being considered for movie night at church, but not quite appropriate for a church to bring to its congregation and also probably a little too deep.

I love this movie. I can watch it over and over again (and I do). I also share it with anyone that visits long enough to watch a movie. LOL

And for an extra treat, watch the special features.

This is a solid movie. This has an important message because there are a lot of people in Hollywood who seek out fame and fortune and ignore the important things in life such as your family, your morality, and your integrity. Often celebrities have short marriages and illegitimate children. Some let alcohol or drugs destroy their lives. They occasionally support charitable causes only to improve their public image. Several even say harsh words against our country and military without realizing the great sacrifices that have protected our freedom.

This movie was recommended to me by a friend. I had never heard of it. I have to admit at first I wasn't impressed but I stuck with it. I'm glad I did because it was a really sweet story. Warning: this was filmed after Kirk Douglas had his real life stroke. Since he is sick and dying in the film it works. Some may find his dialogue hard to understand (at first).
