The movie 'Powder' is a return to innocence. It possesses a spiritualquality that opens the eyes to life. And it lends a soothing note tothose questions for which their seems to be more questions and fewanswers. Sean Patrick Flannery's performance was so powerful that onecould actually feel the unconditional love within the heart and soul ofthe character that he played. The concepts that were brought forward,the passion that came with every dramatic scene, and the sense ofrealism and truth made it one of the most thought provoking movies ofall time. Powder was not based on a true story, but it is, I feel,everybody's true story in some way, and it is as powerful, passionate,and inspirational as any true story I have ever seen. Some viewers maywish to begrudge the apparent perfection portrayed by the leadcharacter. However, his only perfection was the way he searched sodeep, often at great personal expense, for the suppressed perfection ineveryone, and the hidden perfection in everything. I was somewhatdisappointed by how the family quality of the movie was spoiled by theuse of language by the school bully. Still, a must see for anybody whoenjoys a thought provoking film once in a while. Even if you're aperson who would prefer to sit down with a good book, as am I, themovie 'Powder' is definitely worth your time. In conclusion: 'Powder'is one of my favourite movies of all time. Seconded, in my opinion,only to 'The Boondock Saints'; also starring Sean Patrick Flannery.
