Up the Sandbox (1972)
Much like The Science of Sleep or Arizona Dream, it is nearly impossible to tell when in this movie the main character is imagining things and when they're happening in real life. While it's fine to incorporate characters' fantasies in your movie (Heavenly Creatures does that particularly well), when the audience has no clue what's going on and what's real, the filmmaker has dropped the ball. Barbra Streisand gives an okay performance, but I was so lost as to what was happening that I barely noticed.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
