directed by Gary Sinise
U.S. 1992

John Steinbeck's classic novel "Of Mice and Men" gets its third movie treatment, having been filmed previously for the big screen in 1939 (starring Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney Jr.) and for television in 1981 (with Robert Blake and Randy Quaid). (Only the latter version is on video.)

This time out, however, director/producer/star Gary Sinise gives us a more clear-eyed vision of the story of downtrodden George and feeble-minded Lennie, who "travel together." The story is set in California during the Depression, where George (Sinise) and Lennie (John Mal-kovich) take work as farmhands, hoping to be able to stay in one place long enough to raise the money to buy a little place of their own. But Lennie's brute strength, coupled with his childlike curiosity, invariably leads to trouble and, ultimately, tragedy.

Sinise the director manages to keep the various elements under control as if he already has a dozen films under his belt. In fact, this is only his second (after "Miles From Home"). The screenplay, by Horton Foote, is masterful and the technical elements are all excellent, from the period sets and costumes to the sharp cinematography.

"Of Mice and Men" is a fine, literate film of the kind we get all too infrequently these days. It is rated PG-13 for a fair amount of profanity, some vulgarity and some violence.

Comments: Well, I can't t help but feel a little ripped-off... The transfer is EXACTLY the same (see bitrates) - still a wonderful transfer, but I was expecting a slight upgrade. Chapter stops - exactly the same... subs-languages- exactly the same. The Commentary is great, BUT in my disc I can't even access the flip side for these other supposed extras. ??!! It is gold instead of silver ...What's up with that ?
