Long Day's Journey Into Night Reviews
The 3 hours are mainly dialogues and as the film goes on in the house, a "huis-clos", the spectator feels as trapped as the characters, especially Mary of course. This creates an uneasy clostrophobia mood and manage to keep us from being utterly bored.
The relationships and psychology of every member of this addicted family (alcohol for the boys, morphine for the mother)-all of it revolving around the mother- is fascinating to watch..In the end ..every one of them is too self-centered to truthfully help one antoher and alleviate the pain they all bare.
a full talents director and the rest cast , product a nice film .
