Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? Review


Excellent
One of the great directorial debuts in film history came from Mike Nichols, in this 1966 firestorm of emotion, a faithful adaptation of Edward Albee's famous play. Two college professors (Richard Burton and George Segal) meet for drinks with their wives (Liz Taylor and Sandy Dennis). Over the course of the evening, secrets come out and scandals erupt. The real-life husband and wife team of Burton and Taylor own this show, but Dennis also won an Oscar (one of 5 wins) in what has become a watershed film that broke down walls of profanity and vitriol.

The Four Seasons Review


Very Good
Back in the '70s, Alan Alda gained a rep as a "sensitive man," a pro-ERA, Marlo Thomas-loving, abortion-rights-advocating bleeding heart. The Four Seasons, written, directed, and starring Alda at the peak of his M*A*S*H fame, is his feminist apotheosis. This sparkling comedy tracking the travails of three upscale middle-aged couples as they vacation together four times a year (accompanied by a vibrant Vivaldi soundtrack, natch) is told from a distinctly female, and feminist, perspective. Alda is really in touch with his softer side.

Jack and Kate Burroughs (Alda and Carol Burnett), Danny and Claudia Zimmer (Jack Weston and Rita Moreno), and Nick and Anne Callan (Len Cariou and Sandy Dennis) head off for the first of their four annual trips in spring, but it's not going to be a good time. The fragile and seemingly unstable Anne announces that Nick has dumped her and that a divorce is imminent. The women rally around their long-time friend while the men stand back and try to avoid emoting at all.
