It took me a while…

25 Mar

… to decide whether I should pay homage to Liz Taylor. I’ve never been especially found of her style, and while she has been absolutely gorgeous, I’ve never been very convinced by her fashion sense.

Yet, I was thinking again about what I wrote here bout The Moon is Blue :

“I know of few other movies with so much rhythm while being just a matter of dialogue.”

The main other one I think of is Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?

You can read here a short essay on it, giving this movie the praise it deserves. It takes a truly great actress to pull such a role. If you are lucky enough to never have seen it, rush to see it somewhere!

The whole cast (almost), four nominations and two Oscars

You’re in for the absolute worst row you ever saw in a movie, soaked in alcohol and perverse cruelty, with more rhythm that a Chuck Berry standard.

Taylor and Burton, on screen like in life

So, here’s to the memory of a great actress.
