The Pumpkin Eater

I found the film not to be particularly engaging as it went about having stream of consciousness like approach to the story of a woman dealing with her husband's infidelities. The scenes are both simply yet ramble on often with some odd, surely stylistic, choices like a long focus on James Mason's mouth. I really don't mind an excess style, I do love me some David Lynch after all, but here I felt it failed to make a captivating film though it certainly tried.
