Sunday Bloody Sunday

Posted by the editors on Monday, 26 September 2011

Sunday Bloody Sunday (1971)(DVD) Directed by John Schlesinger (Far From the Madding Crowd (1967), Midnight Cowboy (1969), The Day of the Locust (1975), Marathon Man (1976), and others), starring Peter Finch (Far From the Madding Crowd (1967), Network (1976))Glenda Jackson (Women in Love (1969),  A Touch of Class (1973) Stevie (1978), She retired from acting in 1992, and has been an elected Member of Parliament, in the UK, since then)Murray Head and, in his very first film role (an uncredited cameo as a teenage vandal), Daniel Day-Lewis, age 14 (!) (He described the experience as “heaven”, for getting paid £2 to vandalize expensive cars parked outside his local church.).  Sunday Bloody Sunday is a sort of landmark drama, for its portrayal of a bisexual/homosexual/heterosexual love-triangle without complex, involving Murray Head, as a bisexual designer, Peter Finch, as a gay doctor, and Glenda Jackson, as a heterosexual human-resources consultant.  And though the relationship(s) in question have the character portrayed by Murray Head as their center, the film, itself, is more keenly focused on the characters played by Finch and Jackson, their feelings, attitudes, and hopes, and their familial and cultural contexts.  A serious, good film, Sunday Bloody Sunday, is definitely worth watching.

We recommend that you buy your DVDs.  Have a wonderful personal film library..
