5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful & Frank Drama, 14 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Sunday, Bloody Sunday [DVD] (DVD)
Unlike many films of the 1970's this one has aged well and seems as relevant today as when first released in 1971. It helps that the music is classical rather than rock and also that no one wears silly flares. It concerns Dr Hirsch, played by Peter Finch of 'Network' fame who has the most incredibly complicated love triangle with divorcee Glenda Jackson as well as the young artist Murray Head. Everyone in the film (including ex's) seems to know what's going on, but no one gives a damn or bats an eyelid. A small boy even openly (and naturalistically) smokes dope in front of an astonished Jackson who is called bourgeois when she complains about such behaviour. It has to be said that at times it is hard to follow the action because there are so many people involved in so many extended families so a repeat viewing is essential. Nevertheless this is an important and exciting sociological slice of life of London in the 1970's.
