Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: One of the most scathingly honest American films ever made.
Fresh: Keen adaptation and handsome production by Ernest Lehman, outstanding direction by Mike Nichols in his feature debut, and four topflight performances score an artistic bullseye.
Fresh: The greatest credit for the implacable engagement that the film creates for its audience must go to the director, Mike Nichols. Nichols makes a stunning film bow with Virginia Woolf.
Fresh: 'You have ugly talents,' George says, almost admiringly, to Martha. So does this movie.
GEORGE & MARTHA. SAD. SAD SAD. ELIZABETH TAYLORS BEST FILM BY FAR!!!
This is Mike Nichols first film and its amazing. Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton are at their best in this amazing play brought to the screen. This changed movies forever as far as language used in this film. Its really tame by today's standards but then, it was pretty daring. This and Boys in the Band were 2 amazing head game films. Hopefully "Boys in the Band" will be available on Itunes sometime soon. Hope so. Rent or buy this. You won't be sorry.
Are you feeling emotionally stable?
You won't be when this movie is rough with you. A brilliant film. Some of the best performances you will ever see. Burton and Taylor transport you to an emotionally twisted world that you will be lucky to ever get out of.
BRILLIANT ! TAYLOR AND BURTON MASTERPEICE
What can you say more about this film. One of the best film's to come out of the 60's and of all time. Elizabeth Taylor's perfomance is at once shocking and tender. She is simple BRILLIANT A MUST SEE!!!
