Aro Recommended Death of a Salesman


USA 1985, 133 minutes
Dir. Volker Schlondorff
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Classics, Drama

Topics: Stageplay.


Aroview: An excellent adaptation of Arthur Miller’s most famous play, with Dustin Hoffman bringing pathos, seediness and tragedy to the central role.

Seen as a humanist critique of American capitalism, this concerns the plight of worn out travelling salesman forced to reflect upon his failures in life. This version retains much of the theatrical stylisation of the original text.
