A fine underrated movie...
22 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

I saw that movie when I was 6 years old, the year after it came out, and it made me fall in love with Katharine Ross... I recently purchased it (VERY hard to find) and watched it - 30 years later! What a great movie! Very much "of its time", Fools truly captures the early 70s... Katharine Ross is the very embodiment of the young modern woman struggling to establish an identity of her own, struggling against the establishment she's a part of, struggling for freedom and to be appreciated for herself. Jason Robards plays an excellent Matthew South, a struggling, aging actor, yet so vibrant and alive... Scott Hyland's part as Katharine's husband is the only part that is underdeveloped and the rationale for his behavior is never explained satisfactorily. The soundtrack is great (Kenny Rogers and the First Edition)and the cinematography is well done - watch for the "traffic signs" that pop-up throughout the movie - clever! If you can get a hold of this little disturbing gem, go ahead - great stuff.
