Is Joseph Losey’s elusive, maudit masterpiece really a masterpiece? ¬†Stanley Baker’s foolish lout of a writer ruins his life pursuing the wanton Jeanne Moreau, and it’s hard to tell if she’s punishing him or he’s punishing himself. Losey’s directing skills are in top form on location in Venice and Rome for this absorbing art film. PI’s overdue and very welcome disc sorts out the multiple release versions (Eve, Eva, The Devil’s Woman) for the first time, and in so doing makes the show fully accessible for the first time. Co-starring (swoon) Virna Lisi and James Villiers. On Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
