This review is from: The Pumpkin Eater [DVD]  (DVD)
Like the great works of Cassavetes, this seems to come from some parallel universe where films for intelligent adults are standard procedure. There's very little that's obviously arty, but also none of the usual mainstream pap, just some key fragments from the characters' lives presented without pedantic expositions, implausibly transformative 'arcs' or phoney empathy. Aside from Cassavetes, I know of nothing else remotely like it in film history and more's the pity.
