(de) wrote: A cinematic gem. Not only is it a terrific little film, it contains what is arguably one of the finest screen performances I've ever seen. Holbrook is masterful. I don't begrudge Jeff Bridges his Oscar, but believe if this film had been as widely seen as his, he might have minimally needed to share the honors with Holbrook. See it. Please.

It's interesting and has a creeping tension that's never over the top but it's stuck in the all-too-familiar realm of mixing reality with illusion to a frustrating and headache inducing extent. it simply isn't necessary to be this oblique- there's time spent creating an unease within normality and when it all stops being normal the unease becomes confusion and then disinterest. The performances are strong- I'm personally a big fan of Gainsbourg and she gives a typically good performance here. It doesn't change the fact that this is a slow frenzy of a film though- a strange beast that spends most of its time lying down instead of roaring around. It's fun to observe for a while but as it goes on the spectacle lessens. There's still much to see here- it's constantly intriguing and most scenes would work very well as stand-alone devices but the experience overall is no where near as smart. If ever there was a film a film that wasn't the sum of its parts, its this one.

(ca) wrote: A 1980s favorite romantic-comedy. It was sweet and memorable but predictable plot.
(gb) wrote: Just watched this classic B&W film from 1955 and was very impressed by it. Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak both gave outstanding perfomances. I can see why the heroin addition plot line probably turned a few heads back in those "Ozzie & Harriet" times ... still relevant today. If you have not watched it, check it out. Great jazz score. Darren McGavin gave a grand perfomance as the drug provider too ...
