After a long and acclaimed career, Jason Robards leaves us with an above-average telefilm, GOING HOME. Unfortunately, as of this writing you won't find this movie on VHS or DVD. (UPDATE 2007: Now available as Region 1 DVD). More than likely if you see this at all it will be by way of our friends at Lifetime Movie Network. This aired originally in March of 2000 and Mr. Robards died, after battling cancer, eight months later. There was something about Jason Robards that lifted even otherwise poor small-screen films to a higher level. This Made-For-TV drama, however, is actually quite good; with Jason Robards showing that even at his most difficult times personally, he could still carry a film. GOING HOME is worthy of seeing anyway, but it is must-see being Robards' final on-screen performance.
