    Clint Eastwood's A Perfect World (1993), is a beautifully crafted film, that is more than the sum of the parts.

    The on-screen pairing of Mr. Eastwood and Kevin Costner is terrific, with a great cast of characters, including Laura Dern, along for the ride.

    If you've not experienced this one, it's best going in with no background.

    A terrific film, and a quality Blu-ray.

    And especially at that $15 Warner catalog BD price point, a winner.

    Highly Recommended.

    I love this film. And was very impressed by T.J. Lowther.

    Great film. I remember seeing it in the theater, and thinking at the time it was one his better directorial efforts. Clint was really on a roll during this period of his life. If I'm not mistaken, Unforgiven had come out the year prior, and he starred in In The Line Of Fire the same year this one was made. 3 top-notch films from Eastwood.

    Eastwood didn't direct In the Line of Fire. Wolfgang Petersen was the director.

    I like this picture a lot - one of Costner's 'Kennedy Trilogy.'

    Actually, that's why I said he starred in "In The Line Of Fire". I did not mean to suggest he directed all three, just saying how great all three of these films were.

    I love Eastwood and I want this film, but I'm waiting for Warner's Eastwood blu-ray box set announcement for next year. I'm guessing this one will be included if it has 20 films or so.

    I really liked this film when it came out. I worked at the cinema at the time and was (still am) a huge Kevin Costner fan. The film bombed...audience members at my theater who saw it said they didn't like seeing

    everyman Kevin playing a criminal.


    The cinematography was great.

    One of my favourite Eastwood films and arguably Costner's strongest performance (certainly the strongest I've seen--I've not seen all his films). Will definitely be added to my collection.
