I have been so worn out this week that while I can get through a lot of films when you can do nothing but sit, but writing about them is a different matter. What I can say is the Fat City parallels the stories of two boxers, one young and one old, who are trying to make it big. Neither is really successful and the end with an uncomfortable acknowledgment of this fact. It’s a John Huston film so it is a cut above the usual stuff, but this movie isn’t that great. It’s just kind of depressing, like my days of this week.
