      Elvis D A pesar de la tediosa manera que tiene Woody para dirigir comedias dramáticas, Interiors es quizás uno de sus mejores trabajos en el ambiente del drama psicológico. Esta es una historia sobre la dificultad de un matrimonio separado y que el padre anuncie su nuevo casamiento teniendo a las hijas de testigo. Esta película sabe representar uno de los melodramas de la vida y Woody Allen ha tenido éxito en hacer una película sobre este golpe que suele suceder en la vida. Tiene la misma lentitud y peso que tienen las demás películas de Allen, pero cuenta con un guion bien escrito que es fácil de seguir y personajes bastante humanos. Interiors es sin duda un buen drama psicológico y una de las opciones más destacables a elegir de la filmografía de Woody Allen. Mi calificación final para esta película es un 8/10. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A very dour experience There's a lot of moping and the characters having lots of silent discussions Allen has made better pictures about family drama Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 08/02/23 Full Review Kevin L Allen Woody Allen's first real work in pure drama, "Interiors" has qualities of Bergman, Altman, and especially Eugene O'Neill. Whole scenes, like Keaton's first appearance speaking about her mother after her breakdown of sorts, have the feel of a play adapted for cinema. It's heavy stuff for sure, but any drama that centers on the innate issues, real and/or imagined, would be. All these people feel they've been held back by the others from accomplishments or a chance to make a new life for themselves. The dialogue concentrates on these themes, down to specific moments of surprising announcements as well as long held resentments between siblings. Allen shows himself as a confident filmmaker without the need for comedy, and wisely leaves it out of a film that does not feel like it comes up short without one of his self-deprecating characters or physical comedy bits. The ensemble cast of eight actors is tremendous, down to the rarely seen Kristen Griffith. Veterans Marshall, Page and Stapleton nail their parts as the old wife hung out to dry, the new wife who radiates joy, and the man they both care so much for. Richard Jordan pulls off a convincing 'struggling novelist' drunk. And Keaton and Hurt standout among the younger actors as sisters so full of resentment and envy that they seem to not know how to regain their joy and more than their mother. And how the sisters and mother keep looking out at those crashing waves. But then, the waves are so calm and peaceful in the end. It's tough sledding, and the pacing will wear on many, I'm sure. This is movie making for the patient and those who appreciate when art reflects life accurately and without melodrama. 3.4 stars Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review dave s A departure for Woody Allen when released back in 1978, Interiors was his first film that was totally devoid of anything resembling humor. Based on the substance and style, it feels like a Bergman film, filled with regret, angst, and philosophical musings. Three young women (Diane Keaton, Mary Beth Hurt, Kristin Griffith) struggle to come to terms with their fears and anxieties, all while trying to navigate their way through the separation of their parents (E.G. Marshall, Geraldine Page). While much of the dialogue has that ‘do people really speak this way?' vibe to it, it is a thought-provoking statement about the fragility of the human psyche and the complex dynamics of familial relationships. Beautifully shot by Gordon Willis, Allen's regular cinematographer at the time, Interiors is a quietly stylish film that forces the audience to examine their own interpersonal relationships. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review R.S. J Convinced this is the movie Wes Anderson remade as "The Royal Tenenbaums"—love them both too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/06/22 Full Review Shioka O I think this is the most visually satisfying full color work directed by Woody Allen, followed by B&W works "Manhattan" and "Stardust Memories" in consecutive years, all cinematography by Gordon Willis. The story is serious side, proving his versatility, witty dialog as always. Even though he doesn't appear in this, I see Joey played by Mary Beth Hurt as his role, sensitive and has love for art.

      Pauline Kael New Yorker The people in Woody Allen’s Interiors are destroyed by the repressiveness of good taste, and so is the picture. Sep 18, 2023 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Allen, whose comedies have been among the cheerful tonics of recent years, is astonishingly assured in his first drama. Rated: 4/4 Aug 1, 2012 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Even if it ofttimes plays like the Ingmar Bergman imitation it most assuredly remains, it’s redeemed by some powerhouse sequences and some potent performances. Rated: 3/4 Mar 19, 2024 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Interiors is an embalmed family, dissected and taxidermied. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 9, 2022 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a slow, austere drama... Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 4, 2021 Full Review Mattie Lucas From the Front Row Its dramatic elements may feel a bit disjointed, but Allen's mastery of dialogue and character detail keep Interiors from slipping too deeply into self-seriousness.
