Marcus' Review of Sawdust and Tinsel
Sawdust and Tinsel(1953)
A powerful movie with phenomenal performances. I don't think the movie is the downer that most of the other reviews here do, though. The characters do have a rough time but I think that's just how things go. You end up having all sorts of feelings about anything you're truly passionate about or really good at, but at the end of the day, you deal with the good stuff just like you deal with everything else. This movie is about characters having crises of faith, love, purpose, life, and death, but I think that the hopelessness that the movie really explores is the hopelessness of having everything figured out. And its a circus movie!
