For Screen and Country – Darling (#83)

Written by on January 21, 2019

This week, Brendan and Jason face a film which they had no prior knowledge of even its existence before settling down to watch and talk about it but alas, here it is – #83 on the list – 1965’s Darling. Join our hosts as they fall head over heels in love with Julie Christie, discuss some of the cheekier elements along with some of the sexual politics that don’t age particularly well, talk about being a closeted actor in this film and much more. Also: Brendan falls victim to one of the greatest hoaxes of all time.

Plus: The guys roll the dice to find out what movie they’ll be covering next week. What did you think of Darling? Had you seen it before or even knew what it was? Isn’t Julie Christie the best human on Earth? Let us know!
