"Okay, I love Marlon Brando.. Granted because of my age (I was born in 77) most of the stuff I've seen him do was when he was much older. But what was this crap that was made before I was even born? The way this film was reviewed it made it seem as though it was just awesome! U must see it! Marlon is so captivating!!!
This is one of those films where you either love it or hate it. Like the opera, you either love it or hate it. Unfortunately I hated this film. From the way they "hooked" up, to the way they told his story... and of course, the ending, what the hell was that?! The movie comes off as too scattered. Like they could not decide which road to take in telling his story to get you to care. So they just threw in a bunch of scenes. I did not feel sorry nor care for any of the main characters. The only reason why I sat and watched the whole movie, was because I bought it.. Highly, Highly disappointing... I can't believe my mother went to the theater to see this film when it came out. But it speaks volumes that my mom (Marlon Brando lover that she is) could not even remember that his wife killed herself and he is this "tortured" guy just trying to deal. All she remembered was that it was a racy film for 1972. But what are reviews anyway? Just someone elses opinion. Not your own. So if you wish to see this film watch it. If you like it, you like it. If you don't, you don't... The world makes sense again."
