All Threads by Date

Two For The Road (1967)

Gee, it had many ingredients for a great '60s movie. Mancini soundtrack. Script by the guy who'd just won an Oscar for the excellent 'Darling'. Audrey. 'Hot British actor' Albert Finney. Beautiful locations all over France. But it's awful. There's no chemistry between Finney & Audrey, sexual or otherwise. NONE AT ALL and considering this is a film totally about a long relationship, we're in trouble. Finney's awful toned down Northern English accent, grates. Always shouting: 'JOANNA!' He's very, very bad in this. I think it embarrassed him, actually and it shows. Audrey was well past her sell by date in 1966 and looked awful in the dreadful Paris versions of 'mod London fashion', that were really only meant for very young girls in the first place. Most people love it and think it's a real gem of its era and I like a lot about the 'fashionable' '60s but this isn't part of it, not by a long way, baby.
