What happens when you take a high-concept premise (i.e. a big city cop is forced to live with Amish people), but combine it with a strong and subtle directorial hand? You get Peter Weir’s Oscar-nominated Witness. Arriving in theaters in the winter of 1985, Witness was a critical and commercial darling upon release, featuring starring turns from two of the biggest stars in the 80s, Harrison Ford and Kelly McGillis. But, now over 30-years later, it feels like the film doesn’t really get all that much attention. Well, that’s about to change as Ivan, Mike, and Dave dive back into this classic American crime thriller for a re-view.
