A seemingly eccentric, but in fact characteristic, Aldrich film: cutting a radical cinematic swathe through weepie material. It rattles both psychological skeletons and the skeleton of psychology as Crawford's middle-aged spinster and Robertson's seductive young liar rush first into marriage and then at each other's throats. An 'extraordinary combination of domestic Guignol and elephantised soap opera', as Richard Combs has described it.
