Conversations with Other Women

Rating = B

The movie uses a split screen throughout which is sometimes effective (for flashbacks, showing two points of view, showing alternate possibilities, and sometimes just for showing different distances between the man and woman who are the subject of the film); however, the split screen is a little distracting at other times. For me this movie is one big example of “can't live with 'em — can't live without 'em”; I suppose the “other women” of the title is somehow related to the games the two protagonists play. I thought the lead actors were excellent in their infinitely wordy roles — just the right balance of off-handedness and desire.
