    still one of the most intimate portrayals of emotional abuse ever filmed. charles boyer is so scary but so familiar and common. the scene where ingrid bergman cries at the recital and he scoops her up and apologizes to everyone for his nutso wife is not just chilling but so hopeless.

    the problem is that most of the cast and the arrangements are such a step down from the original album (which i have memorized front to back) but i mean it still rules

    cassavetes and poitier are (rightly) praised by the few people who have seen this, but i want to shout out ruby dee as well, who is excellent as sidney poitier's wife. i feel kind of bad for kathleen macguire, who is purely there so john cassavetes' character won't look too gay and she does not succeed. you can't hide those meaningful, longing glances!

    one of the funniest fucking things ever is when tom cruise is at that patient's house and the woman starts kissing him and crying and saying she wants to leave her husband so she can be with him and then her husband dharma and greg walks in and he looks exactly like tom cruise.
