Critic Reviews for Minnie and Moskowitz

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

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.

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.
