I guess I need to watch more Douglas Sirk films to truly get the references, but this stylistic homage/throwback is still neat. Juliane Moore is awesome as usual. The characters are a bit difficult to connect to, they seem caricatural a bit. It's because of the broken convention i think; Had this really been an old timey, would i have related easier to them? Hard to say.

This film resonates wonderfully with Sirk and Fassbinder; having recently seen All that Heaven Allows, it feels like a magnificent echo, and something completely else in its lack of camp and the possibility to discuss previously erased narratives. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous film. Julianne Moore is stunning, playing the role with a Brechtian-like distance and simply reacting. Elmer Bernstein's score, combined with the gold and the crimson of Connecticut's trees makes me weep.

A beautiful homage to director Todd Haynes's muse, the 20th century master of melodrama. Strong, nuanced performances by Julianne Moore as a lonely suburban housewife and by Dennis Haysbert as her gardener, with whom she falls in love.

The influence of Sirk runs very deep in this unmistakably 1950s Connecticut melodrama, but with Haynes's approach decidedly more caricaturistic and tongue-in-cheek where a Sirk would remain sincere and innocent. Haynes advertises his beliefs and feelings so conspicuously in the text as to tantalize the viewer to call bullshit, but they are backed with enough sociohistorical exactitude and psychological sensitivity to make that very difficult.

(Rewatch) Obviously watching this after seeing All That Heaven Allows makes a huge difference, as it's not at all subtle about being an homage/'deconstruction' (and it does get the look right). If anything, it's biggest flaw is not being 'too Hollywood' or whatever i thought of it as a film-illiterate teenager, but that the intertextuality might be too on-the-nose and conceptually overwrought, and it might be more heavy-handed than the films it desperately wants you to know it's referencing.
