"Sunday Bloody Sunday" (1971)

Recommended Posts

I just saw John Schlesinger's extraordinary film from a an original script by Penelope Gilliat.  A real adult dram about a love triangle between a gay doctor (Peter Finch), a straight woman (Glenda Jackson) and their bisexual lover (Murray Head).   I can see how that kiss between Finch and Murray is really a ground breaking moment in gay film history. It made gay love a very natural thing.  Out on blu ray from the Criterion collection

A great film - it never grows old.

I agree I was expecting it to seem dating but there is something about the theme that makes it timeless- a true classic

Not all films need sequels

I don't think that Murray Head would've ended up with either of them.

Probably he would have hooked up with some one in the art world in New York or San Francisco .  It would have been nice if Doctor Finch would have met some one nice on that trip to Italy.
