Loved the play, and Winters and Falk are very good... the actual movie itself, I'm not so sure. It's worth seeing though for being so damn challenging and terrific in its abstractions of desire and fetish and truth. Just dont expect a knockout.
What a piece of pretentious garbage! The only plus thing for the film is a good job by the actors in the film, especially Lee Grant and Shelley Winters. The writing is dreadful, I have no idea why it was nominated for an Oscar in cinematography, there is nothing good about it.
