I saw this for the first time since it's initial release today. Last year I re-watched WATERWORLD, the year before that WYATT EARP. All three are Kevin Costner passion/vanity projects I was fairly sympathetic to when I was younger, and only now have realized aren't much good. THE POSTMAN is by far the worst of the three, filled with pompous sequences and dull performances. Why is Tom Petty in this?
How could anyone think that a movie about a postman would be interesting even if it is meant to be a futuristic western and star Kevin Costner? Hell, even dogs bite postmen, for Christ's sake! I guess also postmen needs cheering up though and have a hero to appreciate. It is not all that bad though. It has good production values and is competent acted, but slow, slow as the mail delivery in the town I live in.
Not sure why, but, it's still a film that comes to mind and one to go back to. I will stand by Kevin Costner films because it was so fashionable to despise them; like wearing white socks just because that lady on BBC Radio 4 despises men who do.
Very small pieces of magic are still precious and simple lessons are not without value.
