Reflections in a Golden Eye

John Huston directed this 1967 adaptation (by Chapman Mortimer and Gladys Hill) of Carson McCullers's tortured novel about an army major at a peacetime camp in Georgia who's a repressed homosexual (Marlon Brando), his adulterous wife (Elizabeth Taylor), and various other unhappy characters and gothic traumas. Originally shot (by Aldo Tonti) in gold-tinted hues that suggested caterpillar guts—a gimmicky effect that was widely applauded at the time for artistic originality, though its aesthetic function was dubious—the film now circulates in more conventional color. Either you like this movie a lot or you run screaming for the exit; I find it rough going. With Julie Harris and Brian Keith.
