Critic Reviews for Little Murders
This film, with brilliant screenplay by Feiffer and matching direction by Alan Arkin and a cast that almost outshines them both, is the quintessential comment on our human and/or family relationships, our way of coping with the horrors around us.
Given our current culture of random violence, Little Murders feels eerily topical.
Alan Arkin's Little Murders is a very New York kind of movie, paranoid, masochistic and nervous. It left me with a cold knot in my stomach, a vague fear that something was gaining on me.
Audience Reviews for Little Murders
This is a brilliant black comedy based on a great off Broadway play. The story is fantastic and comments on city life and the postmodern world in an outrageous way. I love this movie, and I recommend it.
When my friends recommended this movie to me, I expected something a little different than what I got. Not that I was disappointed at all, this movie is probably one of the more original films I have seen in a long time. I loved the monologues and enjoyed the performances (Elliot Gould is amazing and it's a damn shame that some only know him as Monica's dad from Friends). The climax is a little out there, but I didn't mind it because I thought it fit with the rest of the film. The only problem I had was the performance of Alan Arkin who I thought was just annoying. Overall, very enjoyable and nice to see something out of the ordinary.
probably a better play; movie sort of hammers in front of you but scenes are great on their own; Donald Sutherland's monologue is incredible
