GOODBYE, AGAIN (Anatole Litvak, 1961)
90/100 - Amazing. Relationships are complicated, and not many films show this quite as accurately as Goodbye, Again.
Anthony Perkins was so interesting and so gifted that directors wanted to use him even if he wasn't suited to the role. Along with this film I can think of "Phaedra." He is ludicrously overmatched against Yves Montand here and Raf Vallone in the other film. And yet, you watch him work because he is an artist. He has a haunted quality similar to Monty Clift.
