John Schlesinger United Kingdom, 1965

Allison Rung's rating of the film Darling

"Put away your Penguin Freud, Diana." This was full of lines like this gem, which is a jab aimed at JC's character. But I wouldn't agree with the synopsis that Diana is shiftless or "drifting"—this film is pleasant and fresh because she makes a lot of deliberate (and unconventional) choices, regretting all of them for only a moment before hunting happily onward.
