    He was always one step ahead.

    ★★★★

    That rare movie that isn't especially well made -- not particularly well staged or shot, you can easily spot re-shoots and editorial choices covering for on-set errors -- but haunts you nonetheless.

    I actually prefer this to the lauded Cheever short story, mostly because Burt is so goddamn majestic. Noble and splendid.

    Less a deconstruction of the American dream than a poisoned gin and tonic that slowly seeps into its heart.

    ★★★½

    Sometimes lyrical, sometimes humanist, sometimes pedestrian, sometimes show-offy. I can't say it comes to a unity for me, but it's never boring and--I imagine--provokes more thought than the docs whose footage it is drawn from.

    ★★

    Obviously some very talented people involved, but this didn't quite work.
