Surprisingly Effective Adaptation
I couldn’t decide whether or not this movie was evocative or just listless. But given the fact that it has stuck with me long since I actually watched it, I would have to finally go with the former.

This is a screen adaptation of the seemingly unadaptable Nathanael West novel. To compare it to the book is pointless; if you’ve read the novel, you know that no movie could be anything but freely adapted. But director John Schlesinger and the team he has assembled here do a good job of sticking with West’s tone and getting the important elements across. The movie is slightly tedious, and Schlesinger’s efforts to play around with contrasts (mostly in the door-to-door salesman scenes featuring Burgess Meredith) come across as clunky. But mostly, his directorial instincts are right on.

The acting is pretty good, with Donald Sutherland and Karen Black giving the most notable performances in tough roles. Burgess Meredith is o.k. but feels underused, and I suspect he was directed to play his character more grotesquely than maybe he would have been prone to do otherwise.

The surreal, nightmare ending, while true to West’s novel, doesn’t really work. Schlesinger forces his hand too hard, and it’s slightly silly, but yet eerily effective anyway. And the final, wordless scene with Karen Black seems just right.

All in all, a fine film and well worth seeing for its own sake, regardless of your familiarity with its source material.
