Editors Note
Note An aging billionaire (Hopkins) and a fashion photographer (Baldwin) having an affair with the rich man's wife must struggle against the elements--including a man-eating bear--after their plane goes down in the Alaskan wild. An unusually dense and cerebral wilderness thriller, penned by literatus David Mamet and helmed by Tamahori (ONCE WERE WARRIORS).
Box Office "...[THE EDGE] exhibits a restrained literateness that's quite effective..." 10/01/1997 p.42
Sight and Sound "...THE EDGE boasts some awesome effects..." 02/01/1998 p.41
USA Today "...Great bear. Great Hopkins... 09/26/1997 p.6D
New York Times "...A barbed, great-looking adventure film written cannily by David Mamet and directed with verve and fury by Lee Tamahori..." 09/26/1997 p.E10
Entertainment Weekly "...The well-matched actors grab their parts with disciplined ferocity. Baldwin does his best work in a long time....And Hopkins creates one of his most satisfying, complex characters..." 10/03/1997 p.52-3
Los Angeles Times "...THE EDGE's fusion of Mametspeak with a true life adventure remains brawny entertainment..." 09/26/1997 p.F4
Chicago Sun-Times "...It's subtly funny in the way it toys with the cliches of the genre....The movie contains glorious scenery..." 09/26/1997 p.37
A.V. Club "Hopkins does fine work as a billionaire stranded in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness with a smarmy photographer, played by Alec Baldwin....THE EDGE is an interesting footnote in the Mamet canon..." -- Grade: B 05/26/2010
Premiere 4 stars out of 4 -- "Brilliantly written by David Mamet, and beautifully directed by Lee Tamahori, it's thought-provoking, quotable, and worthy of endless analysis." 05/11/2010
