Audience Reviews for American Playhouse
I really like the cafe scene when Martin Donovan's character knocks over the table. It is really insightful about relationships, communication, and suffering. Yep.
Pretentious & awkward. Something seem more workable at theatre rather than in silver screen. As simple as that.
"I believe you are sincere and good at heart." Absolutely stunning. This is a film of undeniable eloquence. At only sixty minutes, it may be relatively short but it doesn't feel like any less of a significant work. Hartley simply ended the film where it needed to end, without concern for standard production guidelines. If only more filmmakers were willing to disregard all preconceived notions of the average marketable length. Maybe we would get more films with such subtle poetic beauty as this.
