Kritikeranmeldelser

That last shot of Who’s Afraid…, where the camera tracks towards George and Martha, leaving their figures behind and focusing on the branches outside the window, is in my opinion, one of the greatest endings in film history.

Nichols’s first feature is remembered mostly for its superlative leading performances, which went far past the stunt casting of the world’s best-known movie star couple embodying a pair of hateful, caterwauling drunks. But Virginia Woolf, shot with radical intimacy by Haskell Wexler, is more than just an example of uncharacteristically savvy, counterintuitive casting, and it’s also more than the sum of its shocks. It’s a tale of American discomfort and defeat, grim and unblinking.

It’s been hailed by some critics as a daring adventure for Jack Warner a dazzling vindication of Elizabeth Taylor and still another directorial coup for Mike Nichols. The movie isn’t all that good, but it’s reasonably entertaining and effective within certain limitations, some evitable and some inevitable. Why Jack Warner should be applauded for bringing a Broadway hit to the screen is a bit beyond me.
