The Belly of an Architect Reviews
A quite depressing but at times moving film. Well made no doubt in every respect as it sinks into deep thoughts by the architect. Not sure if this could sell a lot of tickets in 1987, but I suspect not.
Perhaps I should have paid more attention to this one, but its rather slow paced and when the lead actor Dennehy lays on a surgical table to have his intestine inspected by a doctor.... well it sort of "bottomed" out for me. Who writes this stuff?
But seriously, the Belly refers to the fact that this 55 year old distinguished architect discovers he has belly cancer, an estranged wife and no exibition far away from his native Chicago.
