See it if Insidious evil of story and it’s snowballing effect still relevant. Annette Bening’s performance was great. It’s a drama that builds.

See it if you like Miller plays. AMS has flaws (depiction of women!) but many strengths. Plot unfolds w growing stakes (awk plot device at end).
Don't see it if tradl theater bores you. Realistic prodn. GREAT set. Didn't love Bening's flat-toned perf; Walker was stand-out. Pace is slow, but picks up.
See it if A powerhouse triumvirate - Letts, Bening & Walker - fuel early Miller family drama into moral cosmos despite O"Brien's shallow direction
Don't see it if It's early Miller so it's a little morally self-righteous and a little too "well-made" but themes of honesty & moral conviction never age
See it if You appreciate Arthur Miller and great acting. Tracy Letts and Annette Benning are excellent as the parents.

See it if You like Arthur Miller & feel his sort of human view is lacking these days. Wonderful, affords multi-level views of action, for us & actors

See it if You like Arthur Miller and this work. Benning, Letts, and Walker are great. Loved the projections between scenes.
Don't see it if You want to see Jack O’Brian do a literal interpretation of the text. Nothing new here of note. It is AMS as you know it.
