“Fool for Love” (1985) is based on an off-Broadway play, is written by and stars Sam Shepard, and is directed by Robert Altman. So it’s basically heroin for elite movie critics. I don’t like plays. I thought it sucked. Unlikeable white trash. It’s some bizarre story of inbreeding and wife cheating told in such a way that you can’t tell what’s true and what isn’t, and you don’t care either way. For a brief moment in the middle, there is a stretch of plot exposition. That is the only interesting part. And then it reverts back to a redneck shoutfest.
