Falk and Rowlands -- in performances of almost indescribable intensity -- detail a marriage anchored by love, but tossed by the expectations of others and the unpredictable swell of madness.

Falk and the rest of the cast are exceptional -- even the smallest roles feel spot-on -- but Rowlands is the film.

Rowlands' performance in the title role is one of those tour de force numbers available only to screen players of alcoholics and lunatics.

The most frightening scenes are extremely compelling, and this is a thoughtful film that does prompt serious discussion.
