140803: Though attempting to end on a positive note, this film is just sad commentary on the human condition. The lives of three male friends, who live on the fringe of society, are twisted beyond their already twisted nature by a chance meeting with a recently divorced Marilyn Monroe. I will have to see more of Monroe's work because other than her looks, this film does not demonstrate to me, any semblance of good acting on her part. Eli Wallach, who recently passed away at an amazing 99 years of age, appears as the most destructive of the three men. Though passionate towards Monroe, you know Wallach cannot continue to suppress the obvious anger within himself, a death knell regarding any relationship he may desire. Alcohol fueled, self-destructive behavior is on display throughout this film. The characters are a mess and I found the negativity hard to digest. But, that's likely the point of this film. For what it's worth, enjoy.
