Watching the film this long after its release, one can't help but feel that Redford cast it incorrectly; both young actors appear to be playing the wrong role. However, the main concern with the film is its use of a large selection of mild and moderate profanities. The gravel streets and the brick façades showcase the utmost texture and fine detail. So while there is no universally accepted definition of the term ' Film Noir' - nor the titles that deserve to be punctuated by that powerful descriptive classification - we were able to establish a criteria consensus of our very own.

Though not a terribly active or engrossing track, A River Runs Through It thrives on subtleties, particularly in those natural outdoor shots where minor ambience compliments the visuals wonderfully. For as wondrous as A River Runs Through It is to behold, its true beauty lies within its simplistic and rich storytelling that chronicles the life of a Montana family in the first decades of the 20th century. However, the top-notch presentation of the outdoor scenes more than makes up for these minor infractions. Other environmental sound effects -- for instance the chirping of birds -- fills the soundstage with the wonder of nature and, like the flowing water, allows viewers to practically experience Montana firsthand.
The script does a beautiful job of showing how this family reacts to save a wayward child. The seller must also deliver the goods to the purchaser within 30 days; if it takes longer than this, the buyer has the right to withdraw the purchase. Now make it half as long. Paul is arrested after fighting a man who has insulted her, and Norman is awakened in the middle of the night by a phone call from the police to come and bail Paul out of jail.

Two young boys steeped in tradition and strictly educated through the difficult yet loving guidance of their father's traditional and religiously-centered means, they grow to lead vastly differing lives, neither following in their father's footsteps but always returning to the one place that taught them more about life than even their father's own church: the river that runs through it. A few rough-and-tumble sound effects do spice things up on occasion, notably during a fistfight in chapter four that features plenty of shattered dishes and several thuds accompanying fists hitting flesh, and later fireworks burst all around the soundstage with authority and a subtle rumble from the subwoofer.
When you come right down to it, it's not there's anything exactly wrong with A River Runs Through It. Sheffer the more experienced actor at this point, who got first billing and the reliable Skerritt give solid performances. We're told that Paul is danger more than we're shown it except for some cheerful drinking, his transgressions are kept safely off-screen , and even when the story strands should be pulled taut, Redford continues to wander from scene to scene, seemingly with all the time in the world to spare. The book was published to little fanfare by the university press, and immediately found an audience. Except for an interest in fly-fishing, Norman and Paul are about as different as two brothers can be. But Redford and screenwriter Richard Friedenberg lean too heavily on the voice-overs, and they never really manage to find a narrative engine for the film; it's pleasant to watch, but there's never much at stake, even when Paul starts running up debts he can't pay back. Those expecting leaps and bounds forward visually will have to keep waiting.

It is the film's best achievement that it communicates that message with such feeling. John proudly tells him what a wonderful fisherman he has become, and how he is an artist in the craft, much to Paul's delight. Tom Skerritt and Brenda Blethyn are strong but underused as the boys' parents; Emily Lloyd who, for a brief time in the early 90s, was to be the Next Big Thing does her best with her bland role, though her American accent is a little shaky.
