This adaptation of Arthur Miller's 'Death of a Salesman' really follows the play nearly word for word. I thought what made this film above average was Dustin Hoffman's fantastic acting. Much deserving of his Emmy and his Golden Globe. I also like Jon Malkovich as he played a role I wouldn't see him normally playing. If you've read the play and looking for a decent adaptation then this is the version you're gonna wanna get a hold of.
