Critic Reviews for Minnie and Moskowitz
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.
Zany character portrayal of two lonely thirtysomething misfits who are opposites but nevertheless find romance together despite many obstacles in their path.
The most accessible, and endearing example of his very exceptional art.
A Cassavetes must-have, must-see
Audience Reviews for Minnie and Moskowitz
Romantic comedy that's more quirky than laugh-out-loud funny. I like a romance movie where the story is not rushed. We get a chance to know each member of the couple separately before they meet. Once they do, it's a wild, zany ride to the end. Seymour's mom is a hoot in the restaurant scene.
Perhaps the most accessible, and endearing example of Cassavetes' cinematic art. 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.
