1986, Hemdale Film, 87 min, USA, Dir: Robert Taicher

Elliott Gould is Jimmy Morgan, an agoraphobic whose world is constrained by the walls of his Manhattan apartment. An inheritance has financed Morgan’s cloistered lifestyle for four years, but as his gambling debts and business problems mount, cracks appear in the shell. As a man growing as desperate as he is isolated, Gould gives one of his best performances in this ingeniously designed drama, which also features Jennifer Tilly, Howard Hesseman and Dana Elcar.
