Secret Ceremony Reviews
It is not until Taylor's character learns the true extent of Cenci's mental disturbance that the film is thrown in a different direction. Cenci snaps out of her delusion and the two part ways, that is until the chilling conclusion.
This film surprised me, it's slow moving and intense and lingers in your mind after viewing. It's simple, both in plot and setting. The simplicity helps the believability of these two characters clinging to each other as they have nothing else. Highly recommend to anyone who is a Taylor fan or those interested in psychological thrillers, it's quite brilliant in its own way.
(1968) Secret Ceremony
Gothic horror film which involves young wealthy aimless heiress(Mia Farrow) getting involved with a much older prostitute (Elizabeth Taylor) who thinks is her long lost mother! Robert Mitchum also stars as the actual neglected father! The characters all seem to outshine more than the script deserves but still a fascinating character study nonetheless!
