The topic of identity is very difficult to explore. Obsession is another tough challenge to adapt. Merge them together and add Delon's most complex performance. A thorough character study with undertones of social critique ensues, arguably Losey's definitive triumph in cinema.
Director Joseph Losey is an acquired taste. He's made great films (Trotsky) and some real boring ones as well. He likes being enigmatic, sometimes to the point of tedium. This is a near great film and Alien Delon nails his Kafkaesque character to the cross....Find it and watch it, but don't get mad at me if you hate it.
