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.
Sur le milieu du cinéma, une oeuvre solide, quelquefois un peu ennuyeuse... www.cinefiches.com
I actually really like this film!
So bad, it's bad
Un film metacinematografico. Un cast di questo livello avrebbe meritato un'altra sceneggiatura.
Un bel adieu d'Elia Kazan, une grande fin.
