An enigmatic ensemble classic

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. Based on the play by Edward Albee, we are turned into voyeuristic spectators, enthralled by the hostility of George and Martha, played with magnificent chemistry by real life hu... read more

"You take the trouble to construct a civilization, to build a society based on the principles of... of principle. You make government and art and realize that they are, must be, both the same. You bring things to the saddest of all points, to the point where there is something to lose. Then, all at once, through all the music, through all the sensible sounds of men building, attempting, comes the ... read more

God! I was totally blown away by this film! I have wanted to watch this film for ages but the DVD wasn't released until the very end of 2009. It was shocking and intense to watch. I found it moving at a fast pace right the way through. This film reminded me a lot of American Beauty and A Streetcar Named Desire mostly because of the intense chemistry between the two main characters. To be honest, I... read more

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.

"27.1.2023 Uusintakatselu. AH! Vaikka kreikkalainen teatteri on minun sieluni kieltä, niin on myönnettävä, että amerikaanotkin osuvat joskus maaliin, ja parhaimmillaan vieläpä aivan henkeäsalpaavalla magnituudilla. Kuka pelkää Virginia Woolfia on kaikkia aisteja hivelevä, ei ainoastaan täydellisyyttä kohti kurotteleva vaan siitä myös tukevan otteen saava mestariteos, todellinen näyttelijöiden elokuva, joka on juuri sitä, mihin filmattu teatteri voi parhaimmillaan päästä nii"

During a university faculty party in the evening, the dysfunctional duo rope a younger couple Nick (George Segal) and Honey (Sandy Dennis) into their ongoing "
