- The Aviator review by Swambi
This film attempts to give a biography of Howard Hughes. Although a strange story, I didn't find it inspiring. It lasts about 2 and 1/2 hours (but seems longer)!
Despite being constructed as an epic, the filming and acting fail to engage. The focus is mainly on Howard's involvement with airoplanes - filming, flying, owning, building and crashing. Whether you enjoy the film is likely to depend largely on whether this interests you.
It also outlines his increasing paranoia, relating to obsessive cleanliness and isolation from others. In between there are a few sessions examining his relationships with others, which demonstrate how his wealth and obsessions wrecked any ability to relate meaningfully.
