I’m still not sure that I completely understand this movie. Although it is strange and inventive, the true spirit of the movie becomes a little mottled.
The story moves at a decent clip, but doesn’t take time to explain much. This makes it easy to enjoy several scenes in succession
Ruth Gordon and Bud Cort are really interesting as far as chemistry goes, and they have a lot of dimension. Unfortunately, this only serves to outshine everyone else.
The sets are varied, giving the film a very adventurous feel. It’s just too bad the cinematography isn’t great, which screws up some of the cuts.
The suicide effects were really over the top, which helped to accent the absurdity of the underlying themes.
It was a pretty good movie, but it just didn’t sit very well.
