The Servant Réalisé par Joseph Losey
Much like Pinter’s stage plays The Dumb Waiter, The Birthday Party, and The Homecoming, the film circles around themes of role-playing, class dynamics, and interpersonal subterfuge, evading any definitive reading while somehow remaining emotionally direct at all times.

The fusion of Pinter’s stark approach to image and language with Losey’s sensitivity to spaces and objects . . . brings to this low-budget grand vision an authentic creepy power that’s missing from Eve. The Servant was so distinctive that it initiated a new formally ambitious kind of cinema in the UK, one that reached beyond the social realism of Losey’s British contemporaries.

Both [Eva and The Servant] have impressive but obtrusive jazz scores (by Michel Legrand and Johnny Dankworth, respectively) that seem designed to smother or at least simplify the intellectual issues with emotional bombast, and the almost abject reliance on Antonioni’s notions of decadence (especially strident in Eva) makes the arabesques of the camera movements not so much circles around a void as pirouettes around a borrowed void.
