Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf (1966) Mike Nichols

Standard

 

Sad news about Liz Taylor came to us last weeks. That evening I wanted to recall some movie she played in and guess what, for me there was no other choice but ‘Who’s afraid..’ Forget Cleopatra, Liz’s seven (?) husbands and whether her eye color was real.  Watch Taylor going insane together with R Burt who was probably the only actor who could stand up to this performance. First time I was watching this movie I remember I kept my jaw dropped for what a show it was to see these actors together.

This time I got to the true value of this deep studium of the double-morality, psychological repressions and single human drama. American society of the 60st being psychoanalized by Taylor.
