I just saw this movie in the theatre, and found it one of the most boring and irritating movies I have ever had to sit though. I never saw characters and actors so smug and filled with their own importance! If I had not been with a group, I would have fled to the exit about one hour in. As it was I had to sit though the entire six hours! (Well it seemed that long!)
Kevin Klein was so mannered and irritating that he is unwatchable! and what was that nonsense about the angel of death who flitted in and out with no purpose?
Meryl Streep can actually sing, but who in the world told Lily Tomlin she could? In short, it was a self indulgent mess that I could never be paid to sit through again, let alone buy. If my family wants to hear me scream, they just whisper "A Prairie Home Companion" in my ear.
