RAIN MAN
February 22, 2021  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
How many years ago did Barry Levinson direct Rain Man, the outstanding character study starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise? It was 32 years ago. That’s really hard for me to believe, but both the film and performances feel very, very fresh. Hoffman has the showier role – demanding attention by its very stillness – but Cruise gives what still is one of his best performances ever, and together they’re a very dynamic and touching duo.
