Critic Reviews for The Arrangement
Kazan seems to have turned his search for identity into a callous soap opera, unworthy of a man of Kazan's true talent.
The movie finally pounds at our moral sense so much that our moral sense wearies and becomes defensive, and we are finally just grateful for Faye Dunaway's beauty, and the way she doesn't raise her voice.
The final result of Kazan's dark night of the soul is, tragically, pure american kitsch.
The movie has all the faults of the book, and then some, and you can't skip pages.
Puffy, artsy to the point of ennui, epic where it should be personal, personal where it doesn't matter, drifting, senseless, pointless, irrelevant and dull.
Audience Reviews for The Arrangement
A chaotic but thrilling collage of semi-formed ideas. There are as many moments of inspired acting as there are moments of miscalculation and confusion. Visually wild and very different from most of Kazan's other work.
Flat searching for meaning drama with high quality cast ill served by the director and script. Deborah Kerr's role as a doormat of a wife is beneath her. Faye is incredibly beautiful here.
