  • Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Castaway

    I really enjoyed how Amanda Donohoe was able to be mainly nude through much of the film's duration AND how her nudity isn't constantly made a point of in a facile sexual context, and that we're able to take her character seriously regardless. However, there feels to be something lacking in the midst of the self-imposed desert island scenario as it shifts into difficult and fleeting romance.
