Library Journal

Based on Manuel Puig's novel, director Hector Babenco's movie deftly handles delicate material in the first independent film to get an Oscar® nod for best picture. William Hurt earned a best actor win for his affecting portrayal of Molina, the gaudily gay cellmate of tortured political prisoner Valentin (Raul Julia), whom he placates with movie stories. Subtitled trivia in lieu of audio commentary fascinates with production tidbits. For all collections. Includes the documentary Tangled Web: Making of Kiss of the Spider Woman.


—Jeff T. Dick
