Film Review

Adapted from Sam Shepard’s play, this movie retains many play-like elements such as a relatively fixed setting (a roadside 50’s motel in the Southwest) and extensive, intriguing dialogues. A woman "May" is hounded by a man "Eddie" (played by Sam Shepard). She tries to hide from him in the out-of-the-way motel, but he finds her. The film explores the history of their relationship, mainly from their childhoods, that has led them to this point. It’s very easy to feel sympathy for the characters and to understand that their dysfunctional present relationship is a result of past events out of their control. We mainly watch them fight, make up, fight, make up and so on.

After reading Fool For Love in a Drama class of mine, I was looking forward to seeing how Sam Shepard’s wonderful play would be translated to the screen. Much to my dismay, it was nowhere near as entertaining as the play. The film seemed to drag, the music was inappropriate for the tone of the movie, and all the raw energy of the play seemed to have been sucked out of this film version. It’s a shame to see this come out this way even with Shepard’s involvement, playing the role of Eddie. Do yourselves a favor…see the play next time it’s being performed in your area or simply read the book instead.
