We accept the sincerity and altruistic motives of the aging loner he (Philip Baker Hall) portrays in this consciously spare Nevada-set sleeper. [13 March 1997, p. 8D]

Hall, one of our least appreciated great actors, is mesmerizing as Sydney.

Movies like Hard Eight remind me of what original, compelling characters the movies can sometimes give us.
