Enjoyable but not the best example
on 28 March 2009
The Illustrated Man is a brilliant set of short stories and there was always going to be a problem insofar as there had to be a selection process. I feel there were better stories on offer here for dramatisation. Rod Steiger is excellent in his linking role as the Illustrated Man and the individual vignettes are well acted in most cases but for some they were not given a great deal to work with. Feels like a missed opportunity for a really great film. Worth a viewing though.
