| Opis: |
A word of advice: if George (Richard Burton) and Martha (Elizabeth Taylor) ever ask you over for late-night cocktails--pass. On the other hand, if you have the opportunity to see Mike Nichols's scorching film version of Edward Albee's sensational play, don't miss it! Elegantly photographed in crisp black and white by the great Haskell Wexler, the play has been "opened up" for the screen by director Nichols ( The Graduate, Primary Colors ) and producer/writer Ernest Lehman ( North by Northwest ) without diluting its concentrated, claustrophobic power. Taylor has never been better or brasher as Martha, letting loose with all the fury of a drunken, frustrated academic's wife on one crazy Walpurgisnacht bender. Burton plays her husband, George, the ineffectual history prof married to the college president's daughter. And George Segal and Sandy Dennis are young, callow Nick and Honey, who have no idea what sort of mind-warping psychological games they're being drawn into. Among the most successful theatrical adaptations (artistically and popularly) ever brought to the screen, the entire principal cast of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf was nominated for Oscars--and Taylor, Dennis and cinematographer Wexler won. --Jim Emerson
In the searing drama WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, a college professor and his wife play vicious emotional games with their unsuspecting evening guests. George (Richard Burton) is an alcoholic college professor, Martha (Oscar-winner Elizabeth Taylor) is his virago of a wife. George and Martha know just how to push each other's buttons, with George having a special advantage: he need only mention the couple's son to send Martha into orbit. This evening, the couple's guests are Nick (George Segal), a junior professor, and Honey (Sandy Dennis), Nick's child-like wife. After an evening of sadistic (and sometimes perversely hilarious) 'fun and games', the truth about George and Martha's son comes to light.
In 1966, WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? went farther than any previous big-studio film in its use of profanity and sexual implication (it was the first American film to feature the expletive 'goddamn'). Thanks to the box-office clout of stars Taylor and Burton, not to mention the titillation factor of hearing all those naughty words on the big screen, the film was a hit, and it won 5 Oscars, including awards for Taylor and Dennis, though it lost Best Picture to A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS. First-time director Mike Nichols lost the Oscar, but this movie gave him a perfect transition from his stage work and established him as a hot young Hollywood director, leading to his acclaimed (and Oscar-winning) work on his next movie, THE GRADUATE.
