: I'm a gal , but I have to agree with Marcia's husband on this one. DDL is quite the insufferable fop in this movie(did I just hear Marcia gasp in shock and disbelief?). It's one of those movies I continued to watch thinking " it's got to get better." I'll be interested to know if our Mr. Bill makes it through the entire thing without falling asleep.

I have to admit, although I will watch anything Daniel Day-Lewis is in at least once, I came out of the theater hating this one. I wanted to kill the guy. I felt like I had been in a straightjacket for 2 hours. I watched it again for the period. My grandparents were brought up in that society in NYC at that time. The more I watched it, the more it grew on me. I own my own copy (of course) and watch it frequently. I still would have changed the ending if I had written it. I hate those kinds of endings!
