    I keep reading how this was an experimental film. Thank God time decided it was a failed experiment.

  • What a daring film for Nicholas Ray to make.

    What a daring film for Nicholas Ray to make. For those to say this is nonsense are sorely mistaken as this film combines a cinema verite approach with the experimental film techniques of the period, mainly the elements of, structural, abstract and diaristic films persist here. It is to my amazement that a 'hollywood' director can be open minded enough to embrace these ways of seeing. KUDOS to Nicholas Ray and TCM for making and exhibiting this adventurous and candid film, whose ambitions go well beyond the normal sensibility of maintaining the illusion of a single narrative setting. This is a kind of film making that deserves closer inspection, as it's concerns deal with aspects of time, representation vs. real life, perception etc. It's all too easy and typical for people, as seen here, to have the usual, knee jerk reaction to avant garde films, as they miss the point of understanding/experiencing the intentions and concepts this kind of filmmaking endeavors to portray.

    You folks are talking more about yourselves than the film.

    I hate it when in the name of "art," something completely horrible is foisted upon the audience, and the audience is expected to figure it out. I kept waiting for some cohesion, but it never happened. Then I wondered if I'm just not artsy-fartsy enough to appreciate the deep hidden meaning and the symbolism of whatever it was supposed to symbolize. Finally, I concluded that this was just a jumbled mess.

  • Huh?

    At first I thought there was something wrong with my television set. Then I got sucked in and started waiting for some coherence, but it never happened. If you were to describe most movies in terms of Matisse, Delacroix, Seurat, Van Gogh and even Norman Rockwell, this is the Jackson Pollock of movies.

  • Jumbled nonsense!

    I agree! What a bunch of nonsense! Im embarassed for them.

  • Disjointed and horrible.

    As an experiment it failed. Film is supposed to be entertaining, this was nothing more then a jumble of images and words that left me at a loss. The multi screen technique is confusing and the imagery makes no sense, the acting is matched in the actual filming, both are horrible..
