Reflections in a Golden Eye Diretto da John Huston
In gorgeously photographed sequences Brando tracks Forster in the woods, finding him naked—Huston and his cinematographer Aldo Tonti framing the sequence in incredibly evocative wide shots, which are both real and yet so damn beautiful they might as well be the phantasmagoric visions of a yearning heart and mind, something akin to the work of American photographer F. Holland Day—and in these moments Huston’s film recalls the aristocratic lust of Thomas Mann.

A fascinating film. It’s a nightmarish mélange of gluttony (dietary and sexual), obsession, secrets, voyeurism, and repression, all within the entombed community of a Southern military base… Huston rated the film among his favorites, memorably breaking away from traditional Hollywood camerawork in its unmoored finale.

The dreamy queerness of Reflections in a Golden Eye almost seems out of step, out of time. As unfathomable that the film would be made during the last push of the studio era, it would be just as out of place in 2017. In an ambiguous otherworldly Deep South… the film thrives as a fever dream of unchecked temptation within an oppressive atmosphere. Sensual and horrific, Reflections in a Golden Eye stands as a pillar in the cinematic canon of the Southern Gothic genre.
