Sean Penn, blonde? Robin Wright, skankyho? John Travolta, angry? Harry Dean Stanton, ugly-as-fuck?All this and more in a truly unique look at love and psychosis from the Cassavetes family.
I can honestly think of no movie to truly compare to it, but it was really good, to say the least.
Sean Penn was a great psycho, but when he was cured, he was great at that part too. And Travolta showed that he can play something other than a 'cool' ganster or a lead in a forty year old divorced women's movie. (Or a bad guy in a John Woo movie.) If he took more roles like this, he'd probably be more respected.
And Robin Wright... well, she was a little below them. In fact, the first fifteen minutes focused only on her and not either of the others, and it got really boring after a while, though it did set up the movie very well.
The only regret I have is that the film was too short. I wanted it to be a little longer than it was, so that it could better develop some stuff.Fuck "Titanic"... this movie had more emotion in any one scene than "Titanic" did in it's entire movie.
