For Screen and Country – Women in Love (#87)
Written by Brendan Wahl on June 24, 2019
Brendan and Jason discuss the existential crises of 1969’s Women in Love directed by the infamous and controversial Ken Russell and starring the likes of Oliver Reed and Alan Bates. The guys go deep on this very divisive film and discuss the shocking “wrestling” scene, they discuss how this film isn’t really “about” the women despite the title suggesting otherwise, Oliver Reed’s life outside of film is touched upon and one of the hosts REALLY hates the second hour of the movie.
Next week: A new 6-part series begins on the show called “And Now For Something Completely Similar” in which our hosts go through some remakes/sequels of some of the films they’ve covered during the first fifth of the show. It begins with the 2015 TV adaptation of The Go-Between.
