Next up in the Criterion Channel's lineup is The Nightcomers, featuring Marlon Brando. This is a film I had never seen or heard of before. It is based on characters from "The Turn of the Screw," and is a prequel to that story.
"If you love someone, you want to kill them."
Perhaps I would have appreciated this film more if I could recall events from "Turn of the Screw" better. The acting was fine, and while I am not opposed to a slow build up, I felt like I had to drag myself through the movie and hope it would redeem itself in the end, which it did. With so many movies to watch, I don't know if I will want to see this one again, though it may be interesting to follow this film up with The Innocents.
