Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Recommended Posts

Anybody out there a fan of this film? I was really hoping that they would work it into the schedule this month. Of coarse, I thought a perfect time to have shown it wouldv'e been on Valentines Day. Not only because I've been on more than one scary dates like that, but you have to admit that tho George&Marthas' relationship is stormy, they are absolutely crazy about one another.

 

I also think that Liz was amazing in it. Not beautiful, but yet she was, in a different way. The whole cast was great, and I think it is still one of the best character studies ever.

Welcome, zentropa. The movie is a fine adaptation of Edward Albee's play. And a very chilling glimpse into the ''jollies'' of marriage. I don't know if I would call love what Martha and George felt about each other. It could work as a half-truth. In fact all their married life was made up of lies, half-truths and double talk. They made their bed and they had to lie in it. Thier own private hell and time came when they didn't know better than that. It slowly ripps off any illusion of redemption until the two characters dare throw all the cards on the table and let bygones be bygones.

 

And let me add that la Taylor on a bender is fireworks.
