Death of a Salesman Reviews
Death of a Salesman is a deeply emotional look into the life of a man who's dreams are the money and legacy he will leave behind. Dustin Hoffman's profound performance perfectly displays Willy- a man trapped by his own life. Arthur Miller's script is haunting and Scholondorff's directing makes this "filmed play" stand-out solid. This tragic story will make you think, and I'm overjoyed to live a life of faith.
Not to mention it's roughly 136 minutes of pure talking, or yelling, and it just went on for ages for me.
Hoffman can be good at times, but then he goes on these old man scream fests and it just gets old after awhile. Like watching an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where everyone is always fighting.
It did have a nice cast, but like I've said, the production really hurt this film for me.
