The Edge DVD


In The Edge writer David Mamet created two engrossing and memorable characters; an urbane fashion photographer played by Alec Baldwin and a reserved and intellectual billionaire played by Anthony Hopkins. They find themselves teamed up against both a giant Kodiak bear and their own inner demons, when lost together in the Alaskan wilderness. The subject matter includes male rivalry, the isolationism of extreme wealth and, most conspicuously, the survival of the fittest. Mamet's script, which sounds a little too arched in spots, is well served by New Zealand director... Lee Tamahori, who knows how to capture beauty and brutality in one frame. Although the themes are enormous in scope, they are well balanced and one rarely overpowers the other, nor does the achingly beautiful scenery overshadow the acting. Even if you don't like the intellectualism of the dialogue, there are some great scenes with the bear. --Rochelle O'Gorman, [show more]

When millionaire Charles Morse (Anthony Hopkins) joins his supermodel wife Mickey (Elle MacPherson) for a photo-shoot in Alaska, he does not expect to be plunged into a dangerous battle for survival. Charles accompanies fashion photographer Robert Green (Alec Baldwin) when he flies out to an uncharted lake, scouting for a suitable location. The plane crashes, and Charles finds himself fighting for his life when it transpires that Robert wants him dead in order to have Mickey for himself. Matters are complicated by the fact that both men have to avoid a man-eating bear which is on the loose in the snowy wastes.
