De Niro gives an incredible performance in this very unique film from the great Elia Kazan that features an extraordinary supporting cast and a very compelling story about Hollywood.
An extremely dry adaptation of FitzGerald's unfinished novel . It never catches life and with a dead central performance by Ingrid Boulting iit becomes despite an A list cast, totally missable. Sad.
I actually really like this film!
So bad, it's bad
Un film metacinematografico. Un cast di questo livello avrebbe meritato un'altra sceneggiatura.
Sur le milieu du cinéma, une oeuvre solide, quelquefois un peu ennuyeuse... www.cinefiches.com
Un bel adieu d'Elia Kazan, une grande fin.
