John Schlesinger United Kingdom, 1965

El Biffo's rating of the film Darling

Julie Christy and Dirk Bogarde are predictably superb, and perfectly calculated cinematography eloquently highlights this very cynical picture of London society in 1965. The only thing wrong with DARLING is that, like the society it portrays, it is too tightly wound-up.
