John Schlesinger United Kingdom, 1965

ShawnD's rating of the film Darling

It's too long and has a total of zero redeeming characters, but it's one of the better films to capture the 1960s. Christie's behavior is repellant only in that she's a woman. Male characters in movies have been acting horribly since the first talkie. I wasn't prepared for the boundary-pushing: nudity, openly gay characters, blatant allusions to sex -- no innuendo here. An important if flawed film.
