Long Day's Journey Into Night

5 years ago at Jan 29 8:05
Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night is unquestionably a descent into one family’s personal hell, and perhaps his magnum opus. A work of autobiographical candor that laid bare the emotional scars and inner demons that drove his art.

The Great American Family at its worst. James Tyrone is an aging actor and skinflint whose miserliness has been the ruin of his family. His wife, Mary, has been a morphine addict since the birth of their youngest son, Edmund. Their eldest son, Jamie is an alcoholic, unable an unwilling to find work on his own, he has been 'forced' to take up his father's profession. Edmund, who has been away as a sailor has returned home sick and awaits the doctor's diagnosis of consumption. Each of them is so self-centered, and self-pitying, that they cannot help one-another. None of them even know what they want and they can't bear it.

Morrissey's influences (120 movies items)

"The line "This night has opened my eyes to a great career in store for me, my boy!" in this movie's screenplay seems to have inspired the title for "This Night Has Opened My Eyes". Actor Ralph Richardson was mentioned by Morrissey in the Meat Is Murder tour programme as his favourite actor, for his performance in this film. This movie was mentioned by Morrissey as one of his favourites in a feature titled "Sound and Vision" printed in the March 1993 issue of Movieline. "

Long Day's Journey Into Night

“Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night is unquestionably a descent into one family’s personal hell, and perhaps his magnum opus. A work of autobiographical candor that laid bare the emotional scars and inner demons that drove his art. A film version could be a dangerous prospect; the magic of the stage is that since an entire section of their home is missing it makes us more than a voyeur. We are the silent fifth-member of the family, quite possibly the ghost of the dead-infant that is but one of the numerous problems causing the family to rot from the inside. Thankfully this film captures that same kind of emotional claustrophobia allowing for a similar kind of voyeurism to take place.

Much of this is achieved through the astounding moody and stylized cinematogr” read more

100 Essential Female Film Performances (99 movies items)

"Katharine Hepburn How did a rebelliously eccentric tomboy with an insufferable voice become enshrined as Hollywood’s greatest actress? Hepburn’s career trajectory deserves an essay in its own right, but if ever one sought justification for her gargantuan stature then look no further than Lumet’s adaptation of Eugene O’Neill’s classic American tragedy Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Hepburn pours heart and soul into the morphine-addicted matriarch of the troubled Tyrone clan, reveling "
