Probably my favorite of Nicolas Roeg's movies. I'd also say it's the first time I really understood and appreciated what it is that he's doing, as far as technique is concerned, so maybe I just need to go and revisit the rest of his stuff. Having said that, it's definitely a flawed film. For one thing, I don't think there's a genuinely good performance in the entire movie. Roeg's discursive editing makes it easier to bear, at least.

NO. Contrary to other reviewers, I don't think Garfunkel is part of the problem here; he's actually quite a good fit for the role. The script, however, offers only self-serious nonsense, and Theresa Russell's acting falls apart whenever she opens her mouth.

Russell is so interesting. I feel like I know her, which is a pivotal way in which we're made to feel for her character in Roeg's intuitive, heartfelt kaleidoscope, which grows in emotional intensity and poignancy as it unfolds, jointed into a mosaic spiked with jagged details which ultimately turn the movie on its head. Sometimes you can't help but want what's bad for you. As for the traditional romantic themes, I'm with Billie Holiday. Same old story, but it's worth telling just once more.

Love the opening and it's cool but it didn't engage me that much, really. Theresa Russell is very good (and very goodlooking). Think it's the kind of movie I might rate way higher on a rewatch though.

The picture is tourist Viennese, for good and ill. More or less, sexual expression here equals unitidiness, and Alex and Roeg watch with the same bated breath to see all the unexpected ways in which Alex and Milena can do it. The script comes from Yale Udoff, a playwright, and it says far too much while delivering too little. I wish Roeg would trust animal action more and intellectual justification less. Still, the atempt is remarkable.

I'm conflicted. I don't understand why people are praising Garfunkel as "surprisingly serviceable" because he's not good in this movie. He's dry and when Theresa Russell isn't on screen it's that much worse. Stop boring me Garfunkel, not even your zany-ass hair can save your acting skills. Russell is fantastic, yeah, and there are some good scenes, but the investigative portion was dull, even if the climax has power. Keitel's acting + character isn't terrifibly exciting either.
