  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Play It As It Lays

    Here are Tuesday Weld and Anthony Perkins playing people a lot more similar to themselves than in 'Pretty Poison'. They would understand the nihilism and fakery that is part of being in Hollywood. Why live? Why not?

  2. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Play It As It Lays

    The theater I saw this in had the sound jacked up tooooo loud. The aimless gunshots really had a gut-level impact.

  3. clara m's rating of the film Play It As It Lays

    this was maybe incredibly homophobic but ignoring that i had fun

  4. smokescreen's rating of the film Play It As It Lays

    The precision and spareness of the book's prose cannot be done justice in a cinematic landscape, but this comes as close as I can imagine.

  5. rynmcgnns's rating of the film Play It As It Lays

    Kael just makes me want to see it: "About empty lives, acute anguish, Hollywood and Hell. As Joan Didion's hurting waif-heroine who has discovered the nothingness of life, Tuesday Weld wanders around numbly, looking like a great pumpkin-headed doll."

  6. T. J. Harman's rating of the film Play It As It Lays

    Not as good as the book but still one of the best adaptations of a book I've ever seen. Weld and Perkins nail their parts. Between this one and "Pretty Poison", I wish they'd done more movies together as a pair.
