Critics reviews

As with Jaws, men especially could experience both the pleasure and the terror of an unmanning. Denied that particular catharsis I felt artery-clogged by the long good-bye, which creates a sort of stasis, affirming the superiority of the child’s unfettered imagination over the limited and spiritually downtrodden adult.
