Desire Under the Elms

1 year ago at Jul 8 18:18
I think something got lost in the translation of Eugene O’Neill’s Desire Under the Elms. Other films based on his work used the text as scripture and featured running times that hovered somewhere between two-and-a-half and three hours. Desire runs, roughly, an hour-forty. So pacing is obviously a problem.

The first act plods along slowly, detailing the barely contained rage and ... read more
