One of those prestige pics from decades past that make you wonder exactly what all the fuss was about.

Many shots show an early awareness of mood and expression, using heavy shadows and diagonal shapes to establish visual conflicts.

Emotionally gratifying, it dramatically only crawls along with so many actionless scenes.

Reel Film Reviews

...the film's episodic structure ensures that it rarely becomes boring - though the story does lose some momentum towards the end...
