Critic Reviews for Tough Guys Don't Dance
Neither thrilling nor horrific, the camera, plotting, dialogue and atmosphere are uniformly unconvincing: a conservatoire of false notes.
Not the high point of the Mailer career, but it's a small, entertaining part of it.
Hard to classify; at times you laugh raucously at what's up on the screen; at others you stare dumbly, in stunned amazement.
What is strange is that Tough Guys Don't Dance leaves me with such vivid memories of its times and places, its feelings and weathers, and yet leaves me so completely indifferent to its plot. Watching the film, I laughed a good deal.
Norman Mailer's best film, adapted from his worst novel, shows a surprising amount of cinematic savvy and style.
