Audience Reviews for Nasty Habits

  • Mar 06, 2013
    This strangely forgotten film is a wonderful satire of the then-fresh Watergate scandal. The Nixon administration's misdeeds are transported to a nunnery, in which the contentious election of a new abbess leads to bugged rooms and a strategic burglary that erupts into public scandal. Glenda Jackson is typically flawless as the ice-cold veteran who pulls the strings, but the stellar cast also includes Geraldine Page, Anne Meara, Sandy Dennis (hilarious as an oblivious dimwit) and Eli Wallach. The pious should be forewarned, however: These nuns are hardly filled with loving reverence. They conspire, smoke, curse and even have sex. Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg had been working in British television in the years preceding "Nasty Habits," but he probably learned something about internal power struggles from his previous feature: the infamous Beatles documentary "Let It Be."
