Critic Reviews for Minnie and Moskowitz
John Cassavetes built this movie on a small conceit -- a love affair between two people who are wildly unsuited to each other -- and it doesn't take root.
The sculptural physicality of the images, a 3-D explosion without glasses, embodies that violence while preserving the antagonists' innocent grace; love smooths things out to a dreamy and reflective shine.
The fact is that although I admired specific things about the film, I never laughed very much and only felt slight, distant tremors of the joy that, I assume, rocked everyone connected with the movie during its production.
The movie is sort of a fairy tale, Cassavetes says; it's dedicated to all the people who didn't marry the person they should have. It is a movie on the side of love, and it is one of the finest movies of the year.
[John] Cassavetes injected elements of his own relationship with [Gena] Rowlands into Minnie and Moskowitz's odd courtship, and despite the characters seeming incompatibility, their union is finally credible and touching.
Audience Reviews for Minnie and Moskowitz
Never shying away from the fact that its two main characters could be easily seen as repellent or toxic in their psychological disorders, this audacious drama is able to make us empathize with them while offering a sharp criticism of American society at the same time.
The most accessible and endearing example of Cassavetes' very exceptional art.
Cassavetes shows the sweetness inside daily life, in the ordinary, ugly, lonely and crazy world we humans inhabit in disdain; a place where we all hope to find the person who'll take the heavy burden but also the unique privilege of our company. Seymour Cassel and Gena Rowlands are the outstanding pair that make tangible all that.
