Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018

B-O-R-I-N-G Romance

To date - I believe that I have now seen every single film ever adapted to the screen from a Tennessee Williams' screenplay. And - IMO - "A Streetcar Named Desire" is the only one that has ever risen above the level of mediocrity and repulsiveness.

And, speaking about an irritating story-line - Next to "Suddenly Last Summer" - I rank "The Rose Tattoo" as second in line for the worst of them all. I mean - This film was absolutely filled to overflowing with annoying characters and peasant-mentality situations.

And casting Anna Magnani and Burt Lancaster as the "lovey-dovey" on-screen sweethearts was, indeed, a stroke of pure asininity of the highest order. 'Cause there was not even an ounce of passionate chemistry happening between these two duds at all.

Anyway - If I ever do come across another film that has anything to do with the likes of Tennessee Williams - I will avoid it like the plague. Indeed, I will.
