(1968, Joseph Losey) On her own secluded island, a terminal-but-in-denial Elizabeth Taylor trades barbs with Noël Coward’s “Witch of Capri” until the advent of a mysterious Richard Burton as the “Angel of Death.” Adapted from Williams’ The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore.” Approx. 113 min. 35mm.
“The best failed art film ever, so genuinely beautiful and awful that it’s perfect.”
– John Waters
