Divorce and separation are subjects too important to be treated in the bizarre way Alan Parker treats them in Shoot the Moon which is a film with lots of emotion but no heart.
Adds nothing much to the genre of family dramas.
Parker and Goldman seem to want this battling couple to represent a sort of romantic '60s point of view, and they show up the younger lovers as shallow, '70s-style hedonists.
High drama, albeit depressing, with Keaton and Finney in strong leads.
A racking film which explores divorce with sensitivity and artistic skill.
Not Parker's best, but done with uncanny precision.
Good film about a unhappy marriage. But, Shoot the Moon is very emotional and have one of the worst end that I ever see, that makes the audience saw more, but unfortunately is impeded to see.
What an emotional rollercoaster of a film, what with all the platesmashing and slammed doors and running around. I really, really loved this in the first hour, but after the second hour brought more of the same drama, my appreciation for it dropped significantly.
Great performances, sad subject matter.
lots of yelling and emotional explosions divided by tender moments of contact and stressed-out laughs; kid actors are good; best movie I've seen by Alan Parker, whose lurid fascination with painful episodes is held back by the great Bo Goldman's screenplay
