the book a heartbreaker, the movie a soggy slog. where's the poetry in the filmmaking? Whatever works, however little that is, killed by terrible ungodly score which later had a demon baby of its own (the Steel Magnolias score) . Watch this for the Smackdown
My first Cassavettes. I know I know. I should feel the guilt but everyone has blind spots. I had had no idea how Gena Rowlandseque Kathleen Turner was in style/screen presence but the best part of the movie was the Lynn Carlin half of it. Watched it for the Smackdown.
