Review of An Officer and a Gentleman

an officer and a gentleman is an impeccably well made and acted film. when i say that i am referring to everything but the flashback sequences of gere's character as a child. there the acting is weak and makes the film a little cheesy. thankfully that is only regulated to the first 5 minutes and is intercut between some fantastic scenes with robert loggia. the rest of the film is great and very well done with an assured hand by director taylor hackford. as a second feature he shows a skill and eye for drama and realism that usually only seasoned professionals have gained from their years of experience. the look, the camerawork, the editing, the detail, the story, the script, all very well done. only the music (at times) feels a little dated. at other times it is fantastic. especially the end training scene and the last scene. there is no need to talk about the story (i hate to do that anyways as i find it is better to not know) or the acting per say. lou gosset jr. is of course fantastic and so is gere but i just have to mention debra winger. who is this gorgeous girl and where has she disappeared to? not only is she absolutely beautiful and not only does she get quite naked but she also delivers a fantastic performance full of realism, pathos, life and emotion. i believed everything about her character. i need to see more of here work. production design: 8 out of 10 cinematography: 8 out of 10 re-playability: 8 out of 10 originality: 8 out of 10 costumes: 9 out of 10 directing: 8 out of 10 editing: 8 out of 10 acting: 8 out of 10 music: 7 out of 10 script: 9 out of 10 81/100
