Okay 70s drama
"Pipe Dreams" has pretty much been forgotten today, and seems unlikely to get a DVD release. It's kind of a shame the movie is now in obscurity, because while it's far from perfect, there is some good stuff here. The Alaska setting gives the movie a fresh background and some nice visuals. And the Gladys Knight songs on the soundtrack are a pleasant addition as well. Speaking of Knight, while I didn't think she was a great actress here, she was pretty good for someone who wasn't a professional actress, and on occasion she really acted out the part of a strong independent woman. However, the screenplay is kind of a mess. As others before have said, the story kind of meanders (though it's never boring.) Also, the relationship between the Knight character and her husband makes a few major shifts that seem too sudden and abrupt. This movie is not great, but it has some pleasing elements.
