Sarah and Robert—one loves too much, the other too little. Stylistically, this is one of Cassavettes most polished films, but that just lets its insanity sneak up on you. Neither character—nor the story—reacts logically, which can be grueling for a 140 minute movie. A tribute then, to the actors who pull it off, and to the vibrant desperation they bring to the idea that human desire can be aimed but not controlled.
Pure Cassavetes. Seeing him explore surrealism was a joy. It is definitely deeper than one viewing can deliver. Bo Harwood is a genius with the subtle soundtrack as always. Still in disbelief that kids in the 80's didn't have any acting chops, better than Gloria at least but not up to par with A Woman Under the Influence.
