    Gena Rowlands and Peter Falk give powerful performances. Sometimes uncomfortable and difficult to watch, but worth seeing at least once. 6 years 4 months ago

    The scene with the spoiler was so hard to watch. Mental illness is such a devastating thing. The sickness can appear in so many different intensities and stages. It effects everyone around the ill person. This movie shows in graphic detail the pain of it all. 5 years 4 months ago

    Gene Rowlands gives the most horrifyingly good acting performance I have ever seen in the first hour. I though the dinner scene was the best scene I had ever seen, but then the movie just kept getting better and better. 3 years 8 months ago
