I'm glad I saw this but man was this slow. SHR and I watched this in many different installments over a number of weeks. For some reason, I always thought the whole film was set during the war. I didn't realize that most of it was set in Brooklyn. By the way, Brooklyn looks absolutely fantastic in this movie.
Meryl Streep hit all the right notes I suppose but am I a philistine for finding her a bit overrated in general? Kevin Kline cracked us up in the movie playing one crazy dude. SHR pointed out that the young Kline is a dead ringer for the guy in The Black Lips.
Check it out.
Check the dude to the far left
On another note, do all of these serious early 80's films take forever to get anywhere? So... so ... slow. Or is that just me?
