Reflections in a Golden Eye (1967) Film Review A+

Reflections in a Golden Eye
DIRECTOR: John Huston
BOTTOM LINE: Director John Huston’s favorite of all his movies. Not for everyone, but if it’s to your taste, spellbinding. Brando does something unique with his closeted gay character, who is married to Elizabeth Taylor, who, in turn, is having an affair with their best friend Brian Keith, whose wife Julie Harris has just chopped off her nipples with the garden sears in protest. Her only friend and confidant is her flamboyant Filipino houseboy, Anacleto, brilliantly played by gay actor Zorro David. You are correct if you think you have just entered Carson McCullers’ country. The haunting score is by Toshiro Mayuzumi.

STREAMING: Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV+
