4.0 out of 5 stars And now for something completely different, March 13, 2000
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fine Madness [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Sean Connery sinks his teeth into a full-blooded comic role as a nonconformist poet suffering from writer's block and alimony collectors in mid-1960s New York. The film's madcap style is a bit dated but there are many gems of scenes in this satire of the misunderstood artist in cultureless society. Watching Connery drink and snarl through a poetry 'recital' at a ladies' tea is hysterical, and his little dance on the Brooklyn Bridge is among the revelations. It's interesting that 'A Fine Madness' makes a point of being a NYC movie, and an offbeat one at that, with its bawdiness hinting at the coming sexual revolution and featuring an international superstar who had the energy to stretch himself in something risky--which is more than we can say for most of today's typecast stars.

This is a duplicate of your 2/28/00 review except for part of one sentence. I know you must think you're wonderful but it's really only necessary to submit one review per product and give others a chance to express their opinion. Thanks!
