1.0 out of 5 stars Overblown and Pompous., Jan. 13 2003
By 
This review is from: The Razor's Edge [Import] (VHS Tape)
Well I gave this a try and was quite honestly bored to tears. The performances of all involved were overblown to the point of parody and the only relief was the dry ascerbic wit of Clifton Webb. The scenes of Tibet (?) were laughable with hokey backdrops and a fake Guhru. I suppose that for it's time it had sincerity and believability. But even allowing for movie nostalgia it is hard to swallow today. I got the impression that despite this being a tale of one man's quest for enlightenment the whole topic was so alien to both actors and production crew that they had no idea how to interpret it. Our hero, wanders the world with some vague perception that there is something more to life than the world of American commerce, but appears to have no focus or destination. He does not write, nor does he paint. He spends the night on a mountain and sees God in the light of dawn. It's that easy? Whoopee. I'm sorry but not all vintage movies on literary themes are good, and this is one of the worst.
