I guess the title was a hint that this was not going to be a barrel of laughs - there's not even a suggestion of redemption. The acting is great, and this tackles an important subject: the devastation wrought by alcoholism. Powerful.

Superbly performed, intense drama which, like all of Schrader's work, expertly charts the spectacular fall from grace into destruction by 'macho' men, in this case Nolte and Coburn, who both give the performances of their respective careers. Where the film falls somewhat is when it moves outside the complex relationship between these men; Spacek is good but given little to do, and Dafoe's appearance (and narration) are jarringly surplus to requirements. Still a quietly rewarding drama.

Emotional drama about a man afflicted by a bad childhood. It's engaging and well acted but it doesn't really last beyond the film.

Not exactly a lighthearted film. In fact it's almost difficult to watch. There is so much pain in this film. Every actor in this is at the top of their game, though, and it's well worth watching for the great performances.

I had to turn off this dreary underwhelming crap after 20 minutes. I can watch slow-burning films but goddamn if this wasn't dragging to the point where I couldn't care anymore
