  1. Dalibor's rating of the film Primary Colors

    From cheesy burlesque to hardcore US politics and then meta-philosophical monologues, Nichols sure didn't stand dealing with certain topics for far too long. Which is a shame, he knows how to construct an intriguing story and follow it through, but ultimately lacks in more profound insights. "Primary Colors" still feels too much like a pun on Clinton family then an ambiguous study of idealism versus opportunism.

  2. Jesús's rating of the film Primary Colors

    Love this movie. The scene in the kitchen, where the caracter of Kathy Bates tells the Governor she won´t use the found material of his opponent, for me. is a lesson of acting. The complete Scene. Amazing!

  3. Kyle Knapp's rating of the film Primary Colors

    Nichols has a unique knack for making films that feel authentically American. A bleak, near-great meditation on the different ways idealism can destroy itself. Sharp screenplay, tons of great acting; Thompson, Travolta, Hagman, and Thornton are all fantastic. But Bates, a few missteps aside, gives the performance of the film and acts as its heartbreaking moral center. She probably deserved the Oscar.

  5. David J. Fowlie's rating of the film Primary Colors

    It may just be the last great performance by Travolta!
