27 September 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately most of this film's reviews are mostly skewed towards the negative, which does the film an injustice. Although the film's scenario sounds porno-esquire (ie. infidelity and incestuous desire occurring within a middle-class Californian family), GLASS HOUSES does have a lot going for it. I first saw it on TV when I was seventeen years old, and it has remained in my memory.

When watching the film I was struck by the acting of the cast, the beautiful cinematography, and the highly evocative score by David Raksin. The film's final scene is exemplary in its use of cutting, and, in my opinion, has as much mystery as that of the French film LAST YEAR IN MARIENBAD (1961). The time has come for this sleeper film to finally be unearthed, and put on video or DVD, where the film buffs of the world can decide for themselves about GLASS HOUSES.
