13. Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? – Mike Nichols (1966)

First Viewing.

I’m sure this joke’s been made before, but you could be forgiven for thinking this is a documentary of Burton and Taylor’s marriage. It’s intense, it’s fiery, and it’s wonderful. Burton and Taylor devour Albee’s cruel and cutting lines and give, perhaps, their finest performances captured on film. The best moments of this film are Burton and Taylor going at each other, Segal and Dennis hold up their end of the picture, but there’s no doubt where the greatness in this movie lies.

Marks out of ten – Nine
