Archives Ratings Mrs. Filthy Gooden Worsted

I don't think anyone but me and the Mrs. saw "Straight Story, but that doesn't mean Richard Farnsworth wasn't the best I saw. Maybe he played the old man so well because he's old. Maybe he wasn't actig at all. All I know is that guy was completely credible, and he's got some pretty incredible eyes. Hell, Richard Farnsworth made me think I really knew Alvin Straight and I don't. The closest I know is the nut across the street who's always trying to sell me cyclone fence.

"Straight Story" isn't the best movie of the year, but it might have been the worst if Bruce Willis had played Alvin Straight. Thank God for Farnsworth.
