A number of high-powered artists fail to coalesce their talents in Shoot the Moon a grim drama of marital collapse which proves disturbing and irritating by turns.

Noisy pic belongs almost entirely to toplined Albert Finney and Diane Keaton, who play affluent serious writer and housewife, respectively, and parents of four girls. First act is devoted to couple hitting absolute rock bottom, with nothing to do but for Finney to walk out into the arms of g.f. Karen Allen.

Attempting to handle the situation in civilized fashion, pair agrees that Finney can spend a reasonable amount of time with the girls, which allows Finney to catch glimpses of his wife’s slow-cooking affair with a construction worker.

Forced to ‘control’ himself much of the time, Finney is a walking time bomb, exploding horrendously on one occasion before the climax when he beats his most troublesome daughter. Stripped of most of her charm and sometimes brutally photographed, Keaton is more erratic.
