If you have to see one film in your lifetime, make it Pasolini's Medea. It has everything - superb plot, location, acting, direction - and more. Maria Callas, magnificent on the screen as the abandoned wife Medea, steals your breath away as she first betrayes her people to help Jason steal the Golden Fleece, and then wreaks a terrible revenge when she is in turn betrayed by him for another woman. Pasolini's direction is gentle yet precise, allowing Callas to unfold in all the vehemence of her passion, elciting from her a great performance. A must for all lovers of great films!
