Amazingly realistic depiction of life after divorce
7 January 2001 | by rollo_tomasoSee all my reviews

One of cinematographer Haskell Wexler's earliest efforts that unabashedly reflects the influence of Edward Hopper and depressing street scenes. Barbara Baxley's heartfelt "everywoman" performance is nothing short of amazing. The supporting cast, led by Herschel Bernardi, is also magnificent. THe funny thing about this chronolgue of American hopelessness is that it is much better known in the European Art House circuit than here among the US indy crowd. It definitely should get more exposure; I give it 10 out of 10.
