the bitter taste
8 February 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is not easy or enough fair to say something good or bad about this film. for the admirers of Rock Hudson, the mix of sadness and admiration, first for the tired and ill man, the last for decent performance in a film about a world of appearences , is the basic piece. for large public, seductive job of James Earl Jones could be axis of the film. and, sure, the interesting performane of Sharone Stone. but the films is far to be dessapointment. maybe, for right use of the rules of genre. second, for the status of TV show, giving to public what it expect. and, not the last, for atmosphere. and humor. so, a seductive film.
