Barbra Streisand is great as a New York housewife who is constantly indulging in odd daydreams, some pleasant and some paranoid, about all aspects of her life. Is her husband faithful? What do people think about when they stare at her? Is there something about the crisis in Cuba that she can help with? Some of the forays of fancy that this film takes are so very strange that they will turn the viewer off, but they’re so deliciously rebellious in a Diary of A Mad Housewife kind of way that they will hopefully ring true for those who are politically bent towards this kind of storytelling.
