Kazan seems to have turned his search for identity into a callous soap opera, unworthy of a man of Kazan's true talent.
The movie finally pounds at our moral sense so much that our moral sense wearies and becomes defensive, and we are finally just grateful for Faye Dunaway's beauty, and the way she doesn't raise her voice.
As soon as the characters begin the laborious process of self-analysis, the parade of guilts and obsessions could be marshaled and set in action by any halfway assiduous reader of Time magazine.
Overlong, glum, pretentious and glossy soap opera.
A real shame.
Very minor Kazan
What anchors the film in place are the performances of Douglas, Deborah Kerr as his wife and most especially a positively glowing Faye Dunaway.
A chaotic but thrilling collage of semi-formed ideas. There are as many moments of inspired acting as there are moments of miscalculation and confusion. Visually wild and very different from most of Kazan's other work.
Flat searching for meaning drama with high quality cast ill served by the director and script. Deborah Kerr's role as a doormat of a wife is beneath her. Faye is incredibly beautiful here.
