I had to get a couple hours of sleep after this movie. So devastating, it killed my soul. Great performances and brutally realistic.
View all A Woman Under the Influence reviews
This uncompromising portrait of domestic turmoil details the emotional breakdown of a suburban housewife and her family’s struggle to save her from herself. Gena Rowlands and Peter Falk give unforgettably harrowing performances as a married couple deeply in love but unable to express their ardor in terms the other can understand. This landmark American film is perhaps the most beloved work from the extraordinary John Cassavetes.

Can't We Be Dysfunctional Like A Normal Family? (50 movies items)

"I once made a movie list called "Crazy Bitches", listing movies like Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct as examples of the running theme. In other words, there were films about women who are mentally unstable. But, even really quality movies that follow this theme, no matter how good they are, the concept of feminine mental illness is done with the typical over-the-top Hollywood flair. A Woman Under The Influence handles the subject with a much more intimate and introspective portrayal, on"

"14.2. DVD Uusintakatselu. Cassavetesin nerous on tässä niin ilmeistä, että on oikeastaan turha tuoda sitä erikseen esiin. Näennäisesti tässä ei juuri muuta tapahdu, kuin arkipäivää "vähän erikoisen perheen" sisällä sekä pari konfliktia, mutta on kuitenkin kaikki, mitä voi elokuvalta haluta. Realismin tavoittelu on äärimmäisen onnistunutta. Hektiset ja ahtaat lähikuvat hermostuttavat ja laajat stabiilikuvat taasen imevät täysin sisäänsä luoden tunteen, että on itse m"
