THE RAINMAKER (Theatrical Release USA 1997)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.9|5.0 Starsìììì

The Rainmaker—
gold star film—must be added to the home video library. Matt Damon and Danny DeVito play off one another like Teuscher chocolate covering Tandem Caramels. To add Jon Voight, Mickey Rourke, Danny Glover, and Roy Schieder to the casting mix is perfect. Professionalism’s definition? Don’t go to an Oxford Dictionary. See this film and note the form of Director Francis Ford Coppola.. This is WOW! entertainment. Don’t miss it.
