"Petulia" is one of the best American films of all time. It should beranked with "Citizen Kane" and I'm not being sarcastic.The beauty of the film is how dated it is. Some films that "define" orcapture a certain period of time very well often appear very dated later onand lose their effectiveness ...
In many ways, this is a plot less, jumble of the movie, but at the sametime there is something really fantastic about it, and some movies arebetter off jumbled up cause its fitting, never more so than in the caseof "Petulia." George C. Scott plays a recently divorced man whowillingly begins a semi-a...
I saw this film when it opened and recently bought the video andwatched it again.I remembered being very moved by the characters and the pairing ofJulie Christie and George C Scott. Christie was so young and Scott wasalso still quite young as well. They had great chemistry. I didn't knowthat Shirley...
I've never seen a film which captured the confusion of love gone wronglikethis. The kaleidoscopic editing can be a distraction but it also helpscreate the torment of the main character as his life slowly ceases to makesense.Stunningly photographed by Nicolas Roeg, and a clear influence on hislaterBA...
Certainly one of the top films of the '60s, this film was overlooked(misunderstood?) at its release and has yet to be "rediscovered."Lester'suse of flashbacks and forewards is a little confusing at first, but it'salso a vital element in what makes this film so worthwhile. Theperformances are first-...
I adore this film and I'm so surprised that it doesn't have a higher scorefor user votes. I stumbled on this film on cable and was mesmerized.It'struly is fabulous - if it sounds like I'm gushing over it, it's becausethat's precisely what I'm doing. Julie Christie is just awesome in thisfilm. She...
Lester's "serious" film is a stylistic and cinematic masterpiecethat -likemuch of Lester's work- has been underrated for decades. "Petulia" featuresthe performance of a lifetime for Julie Christie and stunning work byGeorgeC. Scott and Richard Chamberlain.This film is amazingly shot by Nicholas Roeg...
Petulia is a movie of suggestion and inference, something rare for moviesofits time.The aimlessness of its cast only hints at darker, neurotic motives. Itseemsthe players'purposelessness is the point; not so. Characters have plans but don't knowor admitthem. This film uniquely rides on nuances, from...
I was reviewing Julie Christie's career on the net, and, of course,came across one of my favorite's. As expected, the leads are thebest...over time and effort. I saw it the year it was released. Itstill stays with me...clearly and distinctly. From Chamberlain toKnight and Joseph Cotton, everybody st...
I could not give a wide range recommendation for this film. If youdon't like abrupt flashback edits and a story that unfolds slowly, thenthis is not for you. However, if you can hang with the film you will berewarded for your effort with some truly bizarre moments. There areimages from the film that...
Tonight was my first ever viewing of this film by Richard Lester. Asthe movie began, I was somewhat thrown off, as the editing is somewhat"jumpy" and the story is presented out of sequence, so it's rather likepieces of a puzzle coming together. The film is both set and shot in 1967 San Francisco and...
Julie Christie is unforgettable as the lost and abused wife of an insanehusband chillingly played by Richard Chamberlain. Looking for love she throwsherself at the equally lost George C. Scott. John Barry's subtle score addsa gentle, poignant edge to the package....
1968 was a remarkable year in the history of cinema. Films asPasolini's "Teorema", Anderson's "if...." and Kubrick's "2001: A SpaceOdyssey", among others, reflected the times of sudden and often violentchanges people were experiencing all over the world. "Petulia" is amongthose motion pictures, but ...
I may be about to annoy a lot of very nice and very clever people whohave taken the time to comment on "Petulia" eruditely and sincerely. Ihave read them all and even the ones I disagree strongly with are well- argued and,in the spirit of fairness have marked them up positivelyfor their style if not...
What, exactly, makes Petulia such a great movie?Is it the ravishing Julie Christie, who never seemed more appropriatelyout-of-place? The kismet-touched production, which was somehow atHaight-Ashbury at the right time? Maybe it's the editing, the fracturedjuxtaposition of images that both disorients ...
Archie Bollen(George C Scott, very good)is a square peg in a verycircular world. He seems to be a Waldo amongst flower children. There'sa scene I find humorous(..while others might find strange and/orpathetic)that shows Archie in the middle of a crowd of hipsters dancingin a psychedelic hall as some...
Critically-lauded drama from fashionable filmmaker Richard Lester iscertainly handsome enough, although it doesn't initially appear toleave its audience with much but a sour aftertaste. A divorced,frustrated doctor--who has taken up with an exasperating, unhappilymarried young woman named Petulia--q...
I stumbled across "Petulia" late one night somewhere on cable and quicklybecame entranced by the mixed up, alarming and sensitive story. JulieChristie and George C. Scott are amazing in this tale of bad marriages andmistakes. Richard Chamberlain, who is chilling to look at no matter whatthe role, ...
In 1980, Nicholas Roeg (who served as the cinematographer on this film)made a groundbreaking, stunning portrayal of a dysfunctional romancetold in fractured, elliptical narrative fragments called "Bad Timing".In many ways, "Petulia" serves as a predecessor to that wonderful film,as it tells a simila...
Someone obviously likes "Petulia," the 1968 film directed by RichardLesterthat I recently watched on video. Leonard Maltin, in his "TV Movies andVideo Guide," calls it one of the decade's best films, and a few of thecontributors to the Internet Movie Database heap praise on the thing. Ifitisn't al...
Petulia opens with a shot of a middle-aged woman in a wheelchair, thencuts to a sixties' rock club featuring a very young-looking JanisJoplin. The sixties counterculture definitely torpedoed middle-agedwomen. Their husbands, like Archie, the middle-aged doctor played byGeorge G. Scott, have the luxu...
The 1960's were years of radical change, deliberate rebellion andoutright discarding of many rules. This film called " Petulia " is oneexample of the deception of established but hidden lifestyles. It tellsthe story of Petulia Danner (Julie Christie) a young, fashionable, butvery married woman with ...
Despite the sweet title and the presence of Julie Christie, or perhaps,because of, this is not the pleasant movie one might, or might not haveexpected. Certainly when I first saw this upon release, having seenLester's early b/w films, I was expecting another slightly artyavant-garde outing. But no, ...
A very striking film from director Richard Lester that combinesCassevettes' realism, Kubrick's clinical detachment, and Resnais'fragmented film style. Set against a San Francisco that seems inspiredby Felini as well as Antonnioni's BlowUp, Petulia, released the sameyear as Cassavettes' Faces and Kub...
Petulia is one of those films that some critics find creative becauseit takes the story plot line and presents it in a non linear manner.We're all supposed to think that's creative when in fact all it is isconfusing. This is what passes for art.That being said had the film been presented in a straig...
