This is one of those movies that "they don't make anymore." It's not a movie for people who thrive on SFX, or acrobatics, or one-dimensional characters, or stories that are as meaningful as a message in a fortune cookie. This one is about people struggling to survive in a winter wilderness during the railroad boom of the 1860s with all the corruption, decadence, and pioneering spirit of a time, much like our own, in which capitalism and "progress" were the driving forces of society. Wes Bentley, Milla Jovovich, et al, are superb. There isn't a false note in the acting. The landscapes are breathtaking. This is director Michael Winterbottom's finest hour yet, and he's had a few (Jude, Welcome to Sarajevo). If you enjoy a movie with great production design, breathtaking cinematography, an involving human drama (albeit slowly paced), beautiful music, and all the elements of a meticulously produced, high class film, I'd consider getting this one on DVD. The transfer is excellent. It's unfortunate that the disc doesn't offer much in the area of "extras," with the exception of a trailer, but it doesn't really matter because the movie itself is so visually impressive, and so unpretentious at the same time, that there's plenty of eye candy and food for thought to keep any intellectual viewer satisfied. I highly recommend this overlooked gem. Give it a chance and you won't be sorry.

The big American story is that in 1776 courageous American settlers fought for freedom and democracy against British monarchical tyranny. This story is reinforced again and again on the big screen. The story of The West is one that is used most often to illuminate the fight for these essentially admirable ideals. The small American story however, the one often hidden from historical view, is the one that injects a little reality into this interpretation of the American way of freedom and democracy by revealing what really inspired the revolution and made America the country it is. In cinematic terms, The Claim is one of those small stories that expresses much about the American economic mentality.
"Everything has a price" says the film publicity. That tagline defines not only the action of this story but a whole social context, where the driving force behind the society, the main preoccupation of its citizens, is self-interest, and society itself morally bankrupt.
Of course, the story could be set anywhere, its inspiration is credited to Thomas Hardy's Mayor of Casterbridge set in the small, rural backwaters of 19th century England. However, excessive materialism in this setting is not to be equated with the general nature of society. The story of a man selling his wife and daughter to finance his own ambitions is such an outrage because it is related to a society with some moral credibility.

..."The Claim" is a moving, visually stunning movie about loss and a man seeking redemption he'll never find. I don't believe a movie needs explosions to keep the term "boring" at bay. This movie deals with emotions and its characters. Having said that, you also get to see the stunning, mind-blowing image of a house being MOVED THROUGH THE SNOW-COVERED COUNTRYSIDE. The movie also features deathbed scenes, love affairs, death, gunplay, Milla singing a song (!). Nothing boring about this movie. And here's the best part: the cast, as the Amazon reviewer noted, is simply amazing. Wes Bentley and Sarah Polley give the best performances of their short careers (these two will be the young actors that stick around, win a bunch of Oscars, and have careers like De Niro and Streep). Anyone not looking for homogenized Hollywood... -- car crashes and buildings blowing up and tough-guy hokum -- check out this flick. You won't be disappointed.

Dalglish (Wes Bentley) arrives to Kingdome Come in the High Sierra's in order to survey the direction of the railroad he is bringing to the area. At the party in which Dalglish is traveling there are two women, the mother Elena Burn (Nastassja Kinski) and her daughter Hope (Sarah Polley). The two women bring something old with them that only the mayor of Kingdome Come, Daniel Dillon (Peter Mullan), is aware of as it awakens his memories of his arrival to Kingdome Come. He arrived many years earlier with his wife and infant child, whom he traded for the claim of the goldmine in Kingdome Come. The Claim is a well directed story as it is multifaceted and is supported by a dazzling cast that performs brilliantly. In the end, the Claim will offer an impressive cinematic experience that has something for everyone.

Thankfully, it's only 2 hours (as opposed to typical epic movie durations). When will Hollywood and movie critics realize that a movie isn't very satisfying if it has only one dimentional characters? No amount of scenery or historical reference will change that. I bought this video because of the positive reviews on the cover: "One of the top 10 films of the year"--Chicago Sun Times, "Two Thumbs Up"--Ebert and Roeper, and "One of the years best films!"--Jeffery Lyons. It's interesting to note that Hollywood has been in a decline since film historian/critics began to frequent the airwaves with their own shows (which, btw, are produced by the same corporations that make the movies). Oh well, I should've known better than to listen to the praise of predicable critics. Overall, I give the movie 2 stars (the scenery and the actresses were pretty), 0 stars for the reviews. Buyer beware!
