Nobody does crazy as good as Vincente Minnelli. Yes, it's easy to talk about why--but that's a cheap shot. Talk about how instead! I've long loved "The Cobweb" and the drapes (never mind Oscar Levant) but then there's "Two Weeks in Another Town," which, as in all good loony Minnelli films, starts off with a BANG and only gets nuttier.
Imagine if he did "Suddenly Last Summer" or "The Snake Pit" in glorious color with a cast full of character actors! He's like Douglas Sirk going to the department store on Thorazine and acid.
Yes, I did watch it captions. How could I not?
