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.

By A Customer
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

4.0 out of 5 stars A Quest for Wisdom June 8 2004
Format:VHS Tape
There's no need to go into a long synopsis of this movie, or to analyze Bill Murray's performance. This is a movie about a regular guy that suddenly has his world shattered, and so he sets off on a quest for wisdom. As for Murray's portrayal of the central role, Larry Darell, I thought it was perfectly fitting that a man most of us see as a kind of big-hearted clown is here cast as a spiritual adventurer. After all, must these two types by very different from each other? The movie works very well if you don't try to typecast Murray or go into the story with preconceptions about what kind of character Larry Darell is supposed to be. In fact, a big message in the story is about not being trapped by preconceptions about the way things are "supposed to be".
Some of the images in this movie are stunning, and there are times when I get the feeling that I'm looking at one of those Asian landscape paintings in which the tiny figure of a man sits in silent meditation among great mountains, a broad sky, and placid valleys. Without beating you over the head with it, the camera work constantly reminds you that life is bigger than you and that the world is full of wonders. The story reminds us that such wonders can be either beautiful or ugly, with many of them being both at the same time.
The reason I don't give it 5 stars? It left a lot of character development unaddressed, and the viewer simply had to fill in the blanks for many of Larry's challenges and realizations. If you don't find it tugging at your heart, and if you don't find yourself solemnly nodding at some of its poignant observations about life, and then laughing at some folly we all share, then it's not due the movie's shortcomings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleeper If Ever There Was One! Dec 12 2003
Bill Murray is brilliantly casted in the role of the main character; a man seeking the meaning of life on a spiritual quest that sacrifices everything and everyone in his world.
There are significant differences between this film and the novel by W. Somerset Maugham. The narrator is not a character in the film as in the book. Larry Darell does not visit the Dalai Lama in the book as he does in the film, but rather spends several years in India living with a Hindu holy man. Larry's philosophical and religious revelations in the book stem from Hinduism rather than Buddhism, as in the film. There are also other significant small details that are not as obvious in the film as in the novel; for example, the effect of the Great Depression on Gray's family fortune and why he & Isabel must move to Paris and live with Uncle Elliot.
It would be a mistake to think of this movie as a sort of spiritual parallel to "Seven Years in Tibet". It's actually got more in common with the Great Gatsby. This isn't a story about a Westerner becomming turned-on by Eastern religion as much as it's a story about aristocratic Americans from Chicago living as expatriats in Paris in the years 1918-to-1930-something, (as seen through European eyes).
There are some fabulous acting performances in this film, foremost of which is Denholm Elliot in the role of Elliot Templeton (perhaps the best of his career). Bill Murray should have received on Oscar for his performance. Word on the street today is that what an incredible film "Lost in Translation" is, and how it shows a side of Bill Murray we haven't seen before, but I disagree. Those critics need to go back and have a look at "The Razor's Edge" and they will see that "serious" side of Murray, but in a much better-written and more moving story.
This DVD is a nice presentation: a 16x9 widescreen picture that looks good and the sound is fine as well. You won't be sorry you purchased it.
