4.0 out of 5 stars not easy going but rewarding Aug. 21 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Although her screen persona in such films as Starting Over and It's My Turn was being the nice girl next door, Jill Clayburgh
also took some chances. Just think of her vomiting in An Unmarried
Woman and her incestuous opera singer in Bernardo Bertolucci's
Luna. This film is based on Barbara Gordon's book and what probably
helped Clayburgh to deliver her searing performance is that her
husband playwright David Rabe both produced and did the screenplay,
and the director was Jack Hofsiss who did The Elephant Man on stage to
such acclaim. Her Barbara is barely likeable - obsessive-compulsive,
hostile, chain-smoking and valium addicted. It's fascinating to see
how she conceals her pills, and clear that she lacks the support to
accomodate her impulsive decision to withdraw. She is told that valium
withdrawal is as traumatic as opiate withdrawal, and having an
alcoholic abusive lover doesn't help. As Barbara withdraws, Clayburgh
goes all out - convulsing, drooling, shrieking, maniacal, with wild
mad eyes and Frances Farmer hair. When she is eventually
institutionalised we see the anger that the valium had suppressed as
she rages at her therapist played by Dianne Wiest, who matches
Clayburgh. Wiest's first film had been Clayburgh's It's My Turn and
it's generous to think that Clayburgh helped her along with this role,
before she found greater success with Woody Allen. The film is
actually full of interesting actors in small roles - John Lithgow,
David Margulies, Kathleen Widdoes, Daniel Stern, Joe Pesci, Anne de
Salvo, Ellen Greene, Richard Masur, Jeffrey de Munn, and Geraldine
Page as a poet with cancer who Barbara is making a doco on. The poetry
we hear her recite is by Marsha Rabe.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Am Dancing As Fast As I am Dec 15 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I lived her life and it is almost 20 years since I read the book and saw the movie and it still haunts me. Today I am fine, and I can say nothing more than that book really helped me to believe in myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars I want to buy this video Jan. 8 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I have looked everywhere for this video on Vhs. I can't understand why the price is so high. If anyone can suggest where i might find it please let me know. This is the most true to factual movie I remember seeing and my sister is ill with a similar disease. I would like to help by getting this movie and letting my sister, mother, and rest of the family view it. It is very informative. Please help.

4.0 out of 5 stars I saw this movie when it came out and I loved it. July 14 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The characters are so pitiful that at times, I hate to say it, but they made me laugh.The mixture of their patheticness and how they dealt with their problems made me laugh at times, and that appealed to me. I want to see it again now that I am 18 years older and see if it still appeals to me. Thanks :-)
