How many reputable "heavyweight" directors are there -
14 October 1999 | by (toronto) – See all my reviews

Far from successful movie makes some distinctly weird artistic choices, right up to the last scene The rather adventurous underlying structure (Hanna's emotional confusion and attempt to forge a workable life and career, while poised between a politically and ideologically adventurous mix of men) needs a far more dynamic, less portentous telling than is employed here. The movie is mostly tedious and arbitrary and seems like a very odd way of approaching the undoubtedly important underlying issues. Clayburgh isn't a very exciting presence, and the men around her just float in and out - the forging of oppositions and conflicts leads us not to a heightened appreciation of the broader politics but just to melodramatic excess (for example, D.A. Byrne opposes her in court with particular enmity, but later - despite little apparent chemistry - she has a child with him even though their differences remain largely unreconciled : you just stare blankly at all this...)
