Chilling, well acted, depressing
29 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

Tennessee Williams described this as a comedy, but if it's a comedy, it's guaranteed to bring you right down. Really makes you wonder what kind of man TW was.

It's a taut and chilling drama, with excellent performances all around. It's about greed, lust, and men who consider women as commodities, possessions to be bought and sold. Leslie Ann Warren plays a wonderful "Baby Doll" type character, a 4 year old in a voluptuous body, and Ray Sharkey and Peter Boyle are wonderful as well.

Well worth watching, sends a chill down your spine to think about the kind of men this show portrays, I'm sure there are many of them out there.
