I’ve always thought of Robert Aldrich’s The Killing of Sister George (1968) as the love child of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Mr. Aldrich’s Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.
It’s definitely an odd one, but has always found a place in my library.
Kino Lorber’s release, while welcome, is based upon a defectively produced film element – in this case an IP with a bit of surface wear, occasional plus and minus density hits, and color lites that were printed out of sync. You’ll note that at most cuts color will not go to the next timing for several frames.
Annoying, but not a deal killer, for those who desire to own the film in Blu-ray format.
It should be noted, that although there is an X Rated tag at the head end of the film, ratings have changed over the decades and this is now an R.
An interesting film, not for all tastes.
