Lou Andreas Sand, a once famous model, recalls her past as she tries to make success in the modeling world of New York, her stressfull workdays, her affair with Mark, an advertising executive, her friendship with photographer Aaron, and her downward spiral into ruin. Written by
On the list of insolent photographers (with whom the main character would "never" work again) is the name Schatzberg. The name is seen clearly prior to Barbara Carrera's entrance into Dunaway's dressing room, just before she adds another name. Jerry Schatzberg is the director of the film and this is most likely an inside joke about the real model upon whom he based the character. See more »
Faye Dunaway has always been my favorite actress and this movie provides a great showcase for her talents. She plays a very neurotic model who cannot even trust her own memories. The movie is done in a non-narrative style that was fairly common in the 1970s, with events shown out of order, and that device is used very effectively to portray the protagonist's instability. This is one of the overlooked movies from a period that produced many great and challenging films; I don't believe it's ever even been on video.
