Jason's rating of the film The Killing of Sister George

SISTER GEORGE might well be the purest culmination of Aldrichian perfection; the messiest, thorniest perfection imaginable. It is of note that he and screenwriter Marcus connived to make the movie significantly more confrontationally provocative than the play from which it is adapted. They also cultivated its warmth. There is no end to my fascination with performance style in Aldrich's women-centered films.
