Eric Rucker's rating of the film Woman Times Seven

Best of the worst things about 60s movies. Madcap and over-the-top heading that list. But dry and droll, too. Shirley MacLaine is the manic pixie dreamgirl to end them all, with a cunning bait and poison for typical men, deconstructing their subjectivity with her slightest objective physicalities. Inside of all that she still plays her characters with deep sympathy, tracing the shadows of the bars that pen women in.
