I think it cops out.

The ending at the film gives a partial explanation for the behavior of George and Martha and their 'games' but I don't think it's sufficient. Maybe I'm the one who missed it, but George doesn't just play brutal games with and tell lies to Martha but also when he's alone with Nick, and based on the ending, there really doesn't seem to be any reason for him would do so.

So, ultimately I don't think the movie was about a failed and bitter marriage between two people, but a failed and bitter marriage between two insane people, and I don't see any broad or universal message in that.

Draws you in without knowing why

This is one of the most bizarre movie's I think I've ever seen. For a majority of the movie, I had no idea what the heck was happening. All I knew was that I was watching the aggressive bickering between a drunken couple who invites over another couple from a party, who at first were clearly uncomfortable being in their presence. After a few drinks themselves, the couple loosens up and joins in on all the seemingly random nonsense taking place. The weird thing is, no matter how confused I was for the first 90% of the movie, I was incredibly intrigued. The couple's odd behavior is absolutely captivating, especially due to the superb acting by Richard Burton along with the other three characters. I just kept wondering 'what is wrong with this couple that they are acting like this?' By the end of the film, we do get an understanding into their background. If you're looking for an absolutely unique movie that has never been done before or probably ever again, I highly recommend watching this film, as it shows great insight into personal dilemmas within relationship, no matter how bizarre those dilemmas are and to what lengths they will go to keep putting on a charade.

Interim report

This particular film I have enjoyed watching for over 20 times since I watched it for the first time.

To begin with, and to its credit, it is a cinematic adaptation very very faithful to its base material, a very successful play, that has only toned down a bit the profanities due to cencorship of theera. That does not damage the film and such changes are only very subtle.Some scenes have been modified and their location has been moved from the only set of the play, a living room, to external spots in order to increase the realism of the film and provide a freedom of expression and movement not possible for a stage production. In my opinion, anyone who watches the movie will be so captivated that any stage production of the play will seem somewhat inferior and restricted.

Black and white cinematography was deliberately chosen to deminish and dissolve the beautiful characteristics of the actors, as Taylor's eyes would be a sgriking point of vividness in a setting of complete "drabness". Non-colour image makes the scenery more unnoticeable and enhances the actions of the actors. The external shots lend the film a breeze of late summer and early autumn melancholy and desolation.
