After Fitzwilly

After Fitzwilly they showed PERIOD OF ADJUSTMENT, another film for which I have a soft spot. It's based on a Tennessee Williams play, if I'm not mistaken. It starts out plain goofy, but builds to something kind of powerful in a strange, off-putting way. The sort of stiff and amateurish aspects of some of the performances and symbolism actually work in its favor and give it a dreamy, hypnotic glow. And it has "blog" "fave" Jim Hutton in it. I told you, this is what a "blog" is like. There's nothing I can do about it. My hands are tied. Tomorrow I'm going to tell you about the time one of our cats played with a rubber band. And you're going to love it!
