Sort of Movie Review: The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter

My book review is here.    The imdb info for this 1969 film is here.

I read/watched this for the Lit Flicks Challenge.

I don’t know what to say.

I was quietly impressed.   I was saddened.   I respect the work.    I have no words.   Only feelings.   Feelings I can’t find the words to describe.

Yes, I would recommend the experience of reading the book then watching the movie.

  1. Hey, I like your new header! The movie was good, wasn’t it? I thought Alan Arkin was amazing, and even Sondra Locke did a great job. Even now, out of all the movies I’ve seen over my many years on this strange little planet, this movie is probably in my top three. I’ll have to think about it for awhile.

    Now that I’m thinking about Alan Arkin, I may just have to watch “Wait Until Dark” again, or maybe “Six Degrees of Separation.” He’s one of my very favorites.

    hi there! Yes, Alan Arkin was amazing. I really can’t think of any movies of his off the top of my head. I need to give his work another look. I’ve not seen the ones you mention – I’ll move to the top of my Netflix queue…

  2. I’m so glad you saw this! I saw it once about 15 years ago and was blown away by the two leads. Would most def love to see it again.

    I’m thinking I need to read the book again!

  3. Care, I haven’t read this book or seen this movie. Apparently I need to rectify that. Congrats on finishing another selection for the Lit Flicks Challenge.

    Based on your last comment, I just have to say that this book is a MUST compared to Twilight. ’nuff said.

  4. My favorite movies make me speechless. They’re the hardest ones to review. Apparently I need to check this one out.

    Yes, it’s… _________. I know what you mean, hard to find the right words!
