This is a tough watch, but a rewarding one. At first you aren’t sure if it is working – Gene Hackman’s character is the worst person ever and the problems are so foregrounded that it can be almost unbearable. But Ullman’s character balances that out, even if it is always slightly unclear why she endures it. Still, it is a complicated portrayal of marriage that at times feels like some kind of John Cassavetes/Western mashup, though probably two quiet of a film to fit in with either.That was the best passages, the quiet that sat heavy on everyone.
