A forgotten/underrated gem of '70s New Hollywood. Carrie Snodgrass and Richard Benjamin are perfect, and Frank Langella is so mean, really something perfectly nasty. The Motherwell in his apartment is a great touch, and there is a great (early!) Alice Cooper performance, and a last-minute cameo by Peter Boyle! Amazon is selling this on DVD-R, printed on demand-I guess that's their new scam ($28) 2 versions are on YT.
For the sheer filmmaking, this movie dazzled me. 70s cinema never felt this breezy before! As for the content, we have a hilarious dry comedy about the role of a housewife who has been pushed and shoved into every social standard. Somehow the movie manages to not be a feminist rant but an emotional comedy in the end.
Snodgrass is great at being interesting and not just pitiful given the material. Benjamin and Langella excel at playing very different assholes. Loved the anti-climatic ending with the rolling credits over the closeup on Tina.
I think the only cinematic husband worse than Richard Benjamin in this film would be Eddie Marsan in "Tyrannosaur." How sad/scary it is to think that there are men in real life who are just like them, or even worse!
