  • Beautifully textured film...

    It often takes a second viewing to form a firm opinion of a film. I have seen this movie for the second time in a few months. After the first viewing I was of the opinion that it was a little over-the-top. After a second look, however, I really appreciated the way the characters bounced off each other psychologically. I still found Beatty a bit theatrical, but the film was in a sense very much like a stage play. Angela Landsbury was brilliant in her controlled madness, Malden was on a roller-coaster ride with his puncuated humour, and de Wilde was in a sense the storyteller. We saw things primarily as he did. We even fell into the trap of defining various nuances of heroism, which sent us spinning like Duncan tops. The amazing Eva Marie was elegant and goddess like, which was ideal for the role as she was high on Clinton Willarts pedestal. She did a meticulous job of keeping her pain hidden, and then letting it ooze out like thick molasses. We must not forget Barbara Baxley who's brief and powerful appearence warned us that Barry Barry's violence was universal. In the end...we think that life is good!!

    Expectations low; watched this movie for the first time last night. Wow! It's hard to say which performance was most memorable, as each actor personified their characters so perfectly. A great study of dysfunctional people and their interpersonal relationships. Volumes were spoken without actual dialogue, which is a tribute to the quality of the cast's individual performances.

    Watched this last night for the first time. Wow! Great acting by the entire cast and I'll rate this close to Warren Beatty's best performance if not his best.

    79/100. Powerfully acted by the entire cast, with Angela Lansbury standing out. John Frankenheimer's direction is excellent, very finely written and with very rich characterizations. Fine pace, good cinematography. Dysfunctional family movies aren't just a product of the 90's and 00's.

  • Great film

    Great acting. Just wish I had taped it. Just wish it was available on DVD or VHS.
