Audience Reviews for Long Day's Journey Into Night

    The Stratford company did a version of this for the screen in the nineties. I think it was as effective as this version that shows that little action is required with strong dialogue and compelling characters.If this is truly O'Neill's life, it keeps us attentive to a very interesting story.

    Obviously the cast is uniformly great (interesting to see Hepburn play such a broken and vulnerable character) but I think the movie's success is mostly due to Lumet who expands the staging just enough to make this never feel like a filmed play while also ensuring the audience is stuck in this house with these characters.

    Extremely well acted filmed version of the Eugene O'Neill play. The problem is that there is so much going on and so much character drama that it is a little draining. It's like Magnolia if it was still three hours and happened at one house. Jason Robards is fantastic and I loved the stuff between him and Dean Stockwell who is also great. Hepburn has her moments, but some of it seems overacting to say the least. Interesting because it's one of Lumet's first and the camera movement keeps you interested.

    You watch this one for just the great performances and monologues, but it can get grating with all the nonstop talking. I would've like a it more brevity and emotion rather than just talking it out, but, you have to consider the source as well. This is a play about people how only hint at their emotions and always rationalize.
