4.0 out of 5 stars I was stunned!!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Behind the Red Door [Import] (DVD)I can count, on one hand, the number of movies that have left me with nothing more to say than WOW!!!! Keifer Sutherland's performance was not only impressive but I was totally stunned at his ability. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen! A definate recommend to all; and a must for my VERY SELECT collection of DVD's. I think Keifer Sutherland will finally come into his own if he can continue with quality roles like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, I want more,
This review is from: Behind the Red Door [Import] (DVD)As a huge fan of Kiefer Sutherland this movie knocked me off my feet. The characters were so wonderfully portrayed by the actors that you could have knocked me over with a feather. I am used to Kiefer being a bad guy, being a good guy, but this one ranks as his best movie to date.
Definitely hangs with 24.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Recommended.,
This review is from: Behind the Red Door [Import] (DVD)First, this is a superb script. It searches the deepest emotional corners of life with crystalline clarity. There is depth of emotion without sentiment, spiritual exploration without cliche and human truth devoid of lecturing. In addition, this writer and director were truly fortunate in their cast. The characters are extraordinarly realized and executed. It takes trained, talented and caring actors to so succesfully inhabit their roles. But their way was certainly smoothed by the heartbreaking intensity and utter integrity of the story.
The locations are almost painfully beautiful and the editing and direction produce an utterly seamless experience.
Finally, this not a story about death; it's about living life -- and that is it's greatest acheivement.
5.0 out of 5 stars Behind the Red Door is a MASTERPIECE.,
This review is from: Behind the Red Door [Import] (DVD)Considering the typical role of Kiefer Sutherland, this film is quite out of the ordinary. The performances by two incredible actors bring alive the story of man who is fighting his own fears, while trying to help his sister fight hers as well. They help each other to accept certain tragedies in their lives, his illness, her denial of their mother's murder, and rebuild a relationship with each other that is incredibly real. This film is poignant, brilliant and touching to say the least, and has an incredible message concerning HIV/AIDS, but also a touch of humor. Kiefer's gestures, facial expressions and his portrayal of this man with the rough exterior who has such a kind heart show that he's beyond talent. The scene on the beach where Roy and Natalie have their conversation about being alone is fantastically done, and the scene near the end when he tells her he loves her is so simple, yet so touching. It faces the finality of death, and shows the importance of family and forgiveness, in a masterful production that I watch over and over again. We need to see more of this type of film from Mr. Sutherland.
5.0 out of 5 stars Gem of a Movie,
This review is from: Behind the Red Door [Import] (VHS Tape)Behind the Red Door is a lovely and poignant movie. Keifer
Sutherland is excellent as the brother. Watch his walk! So
in character! This man never disappoints.
His dry wit and perfect timing are a delight.
This movie was based on a true story and it is apparent that
The sister in the movie is excellent. The mood and tone of
The scenery adds even more to the nuances of the film as well
This is the "gem of a movie we are all looking for."
