Had high hopes that were dashed by it veering between irritating (characters' mean-spirited arguments) and boring.

Woody Allen's first somber film, Interiors is about as visually beautiful and carefully edited as possible. DP Gordon Willis and editor Ralph Rosenblum give Allen die-on-your-own-sword service, and really, so does the acting ensemble, although the two grand dames of American theater, Geraldine Page and Maureen Stapleton as the first and second wives of E, G, Marshall's pater familias Arthur, stand out even in this strong cast. Visually and in tone and pacing, Interiors recalls the films of Ingmar Bergman, including even the frequent elisions of time Bergman uses both so startlingly and so practically--I'm thinking, in particular, of the jump from Arthur telling Eve that their divorce must be finalized to his introduction of his fiancee Pearl to his universally snobbish children. It also recalls O'Neill's A Long Day's Journey into Night and its self-devouring Tyrone family, which in turn recall Strindberg's Dance of Death. So Interiors' dramatic heritage is more than most heirs could live up to. I think Interiors does better by Strindberg than O'Neill did. Its greatest--perhaps crippling--shortcoming is its family's social status, so wealthy that it can afford to wallow in its neuroses as the vast preponderance of middle-class families cannot. --Ray Olson

For its time, and still, it holds up.

A classic film that opened new ways of seeing our society and of course a look into another level if you aren't an East Coast Hamptons person! Woody Allen took a big jump from his comedic film 'Annie Hall' to this one.

The story played the "Poor poor rich me" bit way too long. Did not care for the players
