Jason's rating of the film The Hurricane

There is always a certain purity of vision in Ford, even though, before he kind of stepped in to the shoes that everybody seemed to agree fit, he made a wide variety of movies. This is a romantic South Seas pic about the ills of colonialism. It is also a stunning disaster pic (containing what must obviously be among the greatest disaster set pieces made up until that time). Also: weirdly sexy for Ford.
