"The Private Life of a Modern Woman" is a thrift-shop psychological X-ray that demands to be taken on its own Tobackian terms. But even on those terms, it spends too much time telling us things that it should be showing us.
This won't raise Toback's ever-wavering profile, but at least it proves him game for a challenge and unashamed to look, let's say, studenty in his earnestness - which feels somehow commendable for a director of his vintage.
