REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 23-Aug-2006)

This is the movie that caused a total about face where my view of Kevin Costner was concerned and I don't even know how many times I've seen most of his movies anymore. I finally noticed how great he truly is. I love all his work, yes even Waterworld. Why? Simple, I appreciate the effort that went into it. Dragonfly was the movie that made me start paying proper attention to the incredible talent this man has for completely immersing himself in his character. He makes every film he does a beautiful piece of work to watch because you can't help losing yourself in his amazing authenticity. He becomes his character and makes it look easy and that's the hard part. To me he is a very special artist, not just another actor. He knows his craft and gives everything he has to every part he plays, whether he likes it or not. I say this because I have to believe that there was a part or two somewhere, that he might have preferred not to do, but did anyway and didn't skimp on the effort. Kevin's finest talent is making a very very difficult job look easy. He's much like the finest simulated diamond in a way. He makes his characters come alive with such brilliance, that for a little while they're real. To me, Kevin, the man, is very real as well. His smile is warm, as are his eyes. He seems to have a beautifully gentle strength. I feel that his quiet way takes nothing away from a person feeling perfectly safe and secure in his care. He strikes me as a shy, kind and generous man, and a man that would be delightful to be around. There's a wit and wisdom that come through and a genuine love for children. I've read media garbage just like the next person, but have always been convinced that, there's a reason for everything we do. Do we always make the best choices in life? No. We are the ones that have to deal with our choices, so what makes them someone elses business? I would love to meet this sweet, special man before I die, and equally important, I would love to see him performing with his band. That would be the ultimate for me. Best regards. Sandy
