I think Ordinary People is way better than people say it is. It deserves better than "I can't believe this beat Raging Bull!"
Almost expected it to have been adapted from a play given how somber it was, but I enjoy that sort of stuff so I found it to be a rather engrossing film. Plus, the cast was perfectly selected and Donald Sutherland was outstanding.
Yes, it beat Raging Bull and yes, time hasn't been kind to it, but I found this film excellent. It was brilliantly acted and brilliantly cast. Timothy Hutton's performance is unforgettable.
