Critic Reviews for Shoot the Moon
Keaton continues to astound with the depth of her characterizations, and Finney's undercurrent of rage maintains tenseness throughout.
Divorce and separation are subjects too important to be treated in the bizarre way Alan Parker treats them in Shoot the Moon which is a film with lots of emotion but no heart.
Parker and Goldman seem to want this battling couple to represent a sort of romantic '60s point of view, and they show up the younger lovers as shallow, '70s-style hedonists.
Despite its flaws, despite its gaps, despite two key scenes that are dreadfully wrong, Shoot the Moon contains a raw emotional power of the sort we rarely see in domestic dramas.
A movie that continues to feel alive because it was drawn from the creators' own divorce experiences, more than from movie conventions.
Audience Reviews for Shoot the Moon
Good film about a unhappy marriage. But, Shoot the Moon is very emotional and have one of the worst end that I ever see, that makes the audience saw more, but unfortunately is impeded to see.
What an emotional rollercoaster of a film, what with all the platesmashing and slammed doors and running around. I really, really loved this in the first hour, but after the second hour brought more of the same drama, my appreciation for it dropped significantly.
Great performances, sad subject matter.
