Movie Reviews

If you loved the book...
Cypressemote | Florida | 10/07/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"...spare yourself this movie. I was so excited when I found out there was a movie, that I tracked down the VHS online. It was *really* disappointing. The acting was bland to bad, and it had almost none of the feel that made the book so enjoyable. The movie "Girl, Interrupted", while also a flawed translation, is a much better purchase if you're interested in this genre."
Really bad video quality

"Another reviewer has also said it, the video quality is truly bad, and makes the DVD nearly unwatchable. If you have not seen the film before, you will miss a great deal simply because of the poor video, the story will be very hard to follow."
Great Movie, bad DVD

"I loved the book "The Bell Jar" and the movie would have been great as well, but the DVD was one of the worst transfers I've ever seen. The DVD looked like a vhs tape that had been played well beyond its usefull life. Some of the images were so unclear that you couldn't see facial expressions. Please realese a transfer that isn't one big blur."
