Psyche 59 03/09/19

Powerhouse Indicator

Director Alexander Singer helped produce Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing and directed A Cold Wind in August; this show is a stab at artful psychodrama before Singer’s career turned to more conventional fare. The complex story examines blindness, infidelity, and the dark secret of a forbidden underage affair. It also hints at Greek Tragedy: the straying husband counts on his blind wife staying blind. The cast is All-Star: Curd J├╝rgens, Patricia Neal, Samantha Eggar, Ian Bannen. CineSavant’s reviewer is Charlie Largent. Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
