The Moving Picture Show

The film is a masterpiece, both a worthy translation of James Joyce's story and a wonderful summation of John Huston's career.

A personal film for John Huston, starring daughter Anjelica and adapted to the screen by son Tony, this very last work evokes beautifully the mood and texture of James Joyce's lyrical story.

What redeems Huston's last gasp is the observational framing and agile editing with which the Morkan sisters' soiree is captured.

Fine performances from everyone, and a self-effacing, enigmatic star turn from Anjelica Huston herself.

There's also a rather awesome and unpretentious directness as well as calmness about the way that Huston contemplates his own rapidly approaching death.

A well-crafted miniature, this dramatization of the Joyce story directly addresses the theme of how the 'shades' from 'that other world' can still live in those who still walk the earth.

This sublime adaptation of the last story in James Joyce's Dubliners is John Huston's final film, and it is as beautiful, delicate, and moving an epitaph as any filmmaker could ever desire.
