John Schlesinger United Kingdom, 1965

Slappy McGee's rating of the film Darling

(2.5 stars) Julie Christie is such a good actress and Schlesinger is a very accomplished director. HOWEVER... this film is a straight up character study of its main character, who is completely vapid, conniving and quite flighty. I just have zero interest in her lying, cheating and manipulating her way to fame. I don't watch the Kardishian TV shows as I have no interest in this kind of story in the least.
