“Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf, Virginia Woolf, Virginia Woolf,
Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf so early in the morning.”


That was the most memorable thing about this movie. No, I really liked watching it. All three hours of it. All three hours of acrimonious conversation between the same four people, none of whom particularly liked any of the others. George’s lines were particularly to my liking – the erudite failed writer and aspiring published novelist. Liz Taylor’s stout figure, even in her middle age, was more appealing than the anorexic plastic figurines galore that is the movie industry today. And the film was the author Charles Bukowski’s favorite.
