Butley

UK, English, 94 mins

  • Director: Harold Pinter
  • Writer: Simon Gray
  • Producer: Ely A. Landau; Otto Plaschkes

CGiii Comment

The little direction that there is - is terrible.

Thankfully Pinter only directed 4 features.

Gray's writing is over-exposed, over-wrought and over-bearing.

Bates' performance is obnoxious and odious as the selfish bisexual.

It's dreadfully long and goes painfully beyond plausibility.

Important only in that it is a diminutive re-hashing of Sunday Bloody Sunday and, as most films do...simplistically, portraying the bisexual as a parasite.

A migraine-inducing marathon.
