So that’s two Creed films that have reduced me to tears.
A bizarre film for sure but a pretty faithful adaptation of McCullers' novel. Definitely gets the Southern Gothic tone right. There are scenes here you don't expect to see in a 1960s studio film (note - it came out in 1967 - the year Mark Harris focuses on in his brilliant book Scenes from a Revolution about the birth of the New Hollywood). Worth watching also for the unusual golden palette, Brando and Taylor of course, as well as Robert Forster's feature film debut.
