Beautiful people devolve into ugly, near-unbearably intimate arguments in this remake of the Ingmar Bergman miniseries. Isaac and Chastain should appear in a project together every few years for the rest of their lives.

I found myself repeatedly impressed by the craft and technique's sheer blunt-force impressiveness, yet awkwardly, even guiltily, unmoved.

Scenes From A Marriage works simply because of Chastain and Isaac. Can we put up with the depressing story just to see their performances? The jury is still out on that.

Doesn't always match the intensity of Chastain's and Isaac's performances. But when they burn white-hot, it's difficult to look away.

It's a bucket of cold water on a story whose purpose is body-temperature intimacy.

It's a master class that deserves recognition, and both actors reach the depth required to sell the dialogue. I just wish the material was worthy of their talents.

Watching Isaac and Chastain impressively tango, spar, and exchange carefully choreographed fireworks displays is enough of a reason to take in Scenes From a Marriage.

It's possible to admire the artistry and hard work that went into this production without feeling truly engaged by it, either emotionally or intellectually.
