5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on an old story March 8 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd already seen the Tyrone Power version of this book, and Bill Murray's version tells essentially the same story, but with a different point-of-view, and selecting different scenes to include. Together, the two films tell the Razor's Edge in a virtual 3-D. It's a good way to experience this thought-provoking story.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best forgotten films Jan. 10 2003
By Scott
Format:DVD
Based on Somerset Maughan's classic novel about innocence, war and the long journey to find self-meaning, this 1984 movie was panned at the time of its release but in retrospect is a great, if flawed, work. The script was developed by Bill Murray along with John Byrum, and Murray practically blackmailed the studio to let him make the movie (holding Ghostbusters up). The performances are all wonderful, especially by the now deceased Denholm Elliot and Theresa Russel as the frustratingly sad character Sophie. One other note - this film has ONE OF THE FINEST MUSICAL SCORES OF ALL TIME. If you love James Horber and John Barry, you will LOVE Jack Nitsche's incredibly moving film music. Warning: you may cry during this movie. It is worth the DVD purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars A unique version April 30 2001
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
Larry Darrell has the ideal life he grew up with the cultured class and has a beautiful girl that was once skinny now filled out. Her father as a perfect job waiting for him and all is right with the world. That is until the war and now Larry must find meaning in life and why one person lives and another doesn't. He may never find the answer but he must try. In the mean time life goes on around him. How will his search help or harm those around him?

"The Razors Edge" is a story by W. Somerset Maugham. Naturally to get the fullness of the story you will have to read the book. A closer to the book movie version (1946) was made with Tyrone Power and Gene Tierney (see my review). This version although closer to the book, however has Tyrone Power usurping some of the deeds the Summerset did in the book.

This movie version went one step further to place Bill Murray in the center stage and cut out a lot of the mystery along with Maugham. At first you will say this is not like the book (and it is not); but the modification emphasized the meaning of the book and by changing Larry from a flyer to an ambulance driver emphasized the question of why him and not me? So you can get a feel for the question Larry asks and not just be an observer. Larry's evolvement with Sophie MacDonald once again takes you out of the realm of an observer. Possibly to save time and enforce the "you are there" feel, W. Somerset Maugham was completely removed from the story. I really like Anne Baxter (1946) but I have to say that Theresa Russell (1984) made an excellent Sophie MacDonald.

Bottom line if you have nothing to compare the movie with it is watchable and insightful. However it is missing the Razor's Edge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing something June 11 2002
Format:VHS Tape
A good film version of the Maugham classic with gorgeous cinematography ,excellent casting and acting, this Razor's Edge is very entertaining and thought provoking. Bill Murray seems a strange choice to play Larry but ultimately plays him to perfection . The other actors all do quite well in their character portrayals. This is an admirable effort to transfer a complex and unusually structured work of fiction to the screen that succeeds to an extraordinary extent.However I felt that the ommission of the author's veiwpoint and narration as written in the novel distorted the story to a degree.

Format:VHS Tape
Bill Murry, usally noted for his jokes and cut up hummor, shows off some of the true actors craft in this modern rendition of Sumerset Maughms classic. The main chacter stuggles with life, love money and a bit of reality. The search for the true meaning of life shows Murrys talent as he becomes "every man" in the search.Set in Paris, India,and WWI France. A well done film that was over shadowed by others in its time (Out of Africa, A Passage to India) If you liked them, you'll like this.

The Razor's Edge is the story of a man who could have had a life of
wealth,but decided he wanted more.he goes on a journey of self
discovery and enlightenment.the movie based on the novel by W.Somerset
Maugham(The Painted Veil)and the screenplay is co-written by John Byrum
and Bill Murray.Murray is also the main character in the film.The story
begins during the time of the 1st world war.Larry Darrel(Murray)goes
off to fight in the war.the war has taken its toll on him emotionally
and when he returns home he is a different man.and so he leaves for
Paris and his journey of discovery begins.This movie is very
dramatic,sedate at times,and hard to get through.it is at times very
poignant and sombre.but it does have a message.sometimes we think we
have everything,when in fact we have nothing.the most wealthy person
may have little or no money,but can be rich,nonetheless.normally i
don't go for the kinds of movies that have a moral to them.and that is
because they usually hit you over the head repeatedly with the
message.The Razor's Edge isn't that kind of film.everything about the
film is subtle,so you really just come to you own conclusions.this is
not a comedy,in fact if it were a play,it would be a tragedy.Bill
Murray puts in a fine dramatic performance.Theresa Russel(Wild
things,Kafka)Catherine Hicks(7th Heaven)Denholm Elliot(Raiders of the
Lost Ark)among others put in very good supporting performances.i would
not recommend this movie to everyone.if you like your viewing
experience to be filled with action,this is not your movie.if your
tastes run more to the sublime,you will like this movie.i give this
movie a strong 3/5
