Utterly Brilliant

This program seems too good to be true: such deep psychological understanding. The sick--yet believable--mother son relationship is equaled only by the one depicted in the MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE.

The greasy attachment on both sides; the mother's ambition for her son; the son's willingness to support her son's ambitions--in spite of everything.

The ambivalence on the part of the wife, as well as on the part of the step-daughter are depicted with great subtlety.

Even after utter disappointment, the "love" remains; the mother cannot abandon her futile dreams.
