George, a middle-aged professor, and Martha, the neurotic wife, invite you to dinner at their house a couple of new ones. The intensity of the relationship as an ongoing struggle for supremacy passed from hosts to guests. Great cinematography, as a combination of melodrama and noir, with excellent use of depth of field.

A descent into madness, watching this film is like having your head compressed in vice. As an audience member, we are invited into the twisted life on an older married couple, whose life is shrouded in a strange ambiguity.

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are ideal as malevolent marrieds Martha and George in first-time film director Mike Nicholas' searing film of Edward Albee's groundbreaking Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Taylor won her second Academy Award (and New York Film Critics, National Board of Review and British Film Academy Best Actress Awards). Burton matches her as her emotionally spent spouse. And George Segal and Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner Sandy Dennis score as another couple straying into their destructive path. The movie won a total of five Academy and remains after 40 years a taboo-toppling landmark.
