Movie Reviews

Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 8/10 by Dennis SchwartzThe "kitchen sink" drama was largely effective because of the superb acting and dialogue.
Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers - 8/10 by Steve CrumFine drama featuring Patricia Neal and Jack Albertson, based on stage play.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 7/10 by Emanuel LevyUlu Grosabrd's theatrical film, based on Pulitzer Prize winning play, is an intense family melodrama, well acted by Patricia Neal and Jack Albertson as the feuding parents and Martin Sheen as their Viet vet son.
User Review - 8/10 by M SA powerful adaptation of Frank D. Gilroy's Pulitzer Prize-winning play. This guy knows how to write. The acting was also great. They don't make em like this anymore. Dialogue driven. No fun at all, but right to the bone for two hours straight.
User Review - 8/10 by Ice RAlbertson and Neal are incredible in this movie.
User Review - 8/10 by James HThis is a very emotional movie! Its about two parents who have grown into two bitter old people. Martin Sheen plays the son that was torn between both of their problems. He finds out that neither are who he thought they were growing up.
User Review - 8/10 by Ronni MEmotionally-gripping & dramatically-weighty account of the tragically-disfunctional situation an ex-GI (Martin Sheen) encounters upon returning to his childhood home. His parents (Jack Albertson & Patricia Neal-) are still in the throes of an extremely unhappy marriage, & he inexorably gets drawn in to their sadly-unfulfilling & miserable life. Powerhouse performances all around, with Albertson (In an Oscar-winning job-) memorably superb as the demanding and domineering father.
User Review - 8/10 by Carley EJust watched the last half of THE SUBJECT WAS ROSES. What a great play... with stellar performances from Jack Albertson, Patricia Neal and a young Martin Sheen.
User Review - 6/10 by Andrejs PA young Martin Sheen and Patricia Neal (from Hud) do the film version of a play about interaction between father mother and son. Yep only three actors and for the most part it takes place in one setting,their home. The movie is very dialog driven and its pretty obvious this movie started out as a play. So if that's not your cup of tea you won't like this movie. All three actors were great in their roles. Just for the record, I find something very hot about Patirica Neal in her younger years (Hud, A Face in the Crowd). Cant quite put my finger on it.....maybe its just her overall presence.
User Review - 6/10 by Nancy LNeal made a remarkable comeback after suffering from strokes and partial paralysis by starring in this screen adaptation of the hit stage play of the same name. Neal had extraordinary difficulty memorizing dialog and her touching performance was well honored with an Oscar nomination. It's not just acting you see on screen, it's the force of will.
