Critic Reviews for Fool for Love
Fool For Love is too removed from the real world to connect as more than a spooky, extradimensional love story.
Though most of the tension of the theatrical presentation is gone, the movie preserves a lot of the play's lunatic humor. It also understands the Shepard concern for characters who have somehow found themselves cut loose from any social roots.
With Fool for Love, he has succeeded on two levels that seem opposed to each other. He has made a melodrama, almost a soap opera, in which the characters achieve a kind of nobility.
Altman's staging only underlines the pretentious vagaries built into Shepard's concept.
The basic friction between Altman's lightness and Shepard's portentousness serves the movie in rich and ever-expanding ways, and not just because you can't ever predict how the narrative will swerve.
