Death of a Ladies Man

Drama


 

A heavy-drinking poetry professor who has vibrant hallucinations is informed of the brain tumour which will end his life.

If one could allow your inner life some free reign and bring dreaming into the everyday, then life might look like that of the protagonist of "Death of a Ladies Man". The movie manages to be heady with sober themes, thanks in part to the lyrics of the soundtrack. The choreographed song sequences are a delight, better than any recent musical, and serve to bring an emotional depth to the story that speaks to our (too often) story-starved psyches. It's closing time.
