Mixed Reviews
In Courtroom

T

wo courtroom dramas
are currently on view:
Nuts(rated: R) and
Suspect (rated: R).
While Suspect is enjoying a
good run, the heavy accolades
are going to Nuts, whose star
Barbra Streisand is being
touted for an Oscar. However,
I do not find myself among
those who are impressed by
this latest Streisand
endeavor.
The trouble with Nuts is
that Streisand the producer
has given so much weight to
Streisand the star that the
film is all out of balance. The
plot relies on the question: Is
the Streisand character
"nuts" or "competent to
stand trial" for a murder she
allegedly committed?
But you see and hear so
much Streisand in the first
few minutes of the film you
know immediately that she's
not "nuts" at all but emi-
nently rational.
This film is based on a stage
play with the same title. I
didn't think much of the play.
It's a rather shallow, gim-
micky piece of work. But at
least the gimmick worked.
The lead character hardly
spoke for the first two acts
and you really did not know
if she was cuckoo or merely
eccentric.
Can you imagine Streisand
not talking for the first two-
thirds of the picture? Well,
neither could she. And not
only does she talk plenty, but
she gets one huge close-up
after another.
Barbra, you're a wonderful,
talented, serious actress. Let
someone else produce your
films, OK?
The underlying psychologi-
cal question in Nuts is: Why
did this middle class gal
become a high class hooker?
I found the answer to this one,
too, rather predictable both in
plot and in character
performance.
Richard Dreyfuss, as Strei-
sand's attorney, gives one of
his most modulated and best
performances. A whole raft of
seasoned veterans also turn
in fine characterizations, in-
cluding Maureen Stapleton,
Karl Malden, James Whit-
more and Robert Webber.
Suspect despite some inex-
plicably idiotic writing, is a
much more suspenseful and
exciting film with a truly sur-
prising plot twist at the end.
Cher is alright, not terrific,
