That's the kind of film I like! Intriguing but still understandable, not so evident though because you have to be intellectually active during the projection, searching for references, hidden analogies or symbols the director spread throughout the film. Masterpiece.
A superbly strange psychodrama from director Joseph Losey. Excellent performances - particularly from a beguiling Mia Farrow and Robert Mitchum at his sardonic best - and an eerie, absorbing atmosphere of restrained intensity. One of Losey's very best, and a true classic that deserves to be better known.
