he center of the film is still grandiose acting and tons of over-reaching self-revelation, and it ends up feeling awkward and unsteady on the screen

Sidney Lumet's handling of the material doesn't miss a beat; the only real trace of an encroaching staginess can be found in some of Dysart's lengthy monologues.

The acting of Richard Burton and Peter Firth in their Oscar-nominated turns is good, but writer Shaffer and Sidney Lumet can't really open up the play
