Perhaps Ken Russell's best all-around film, containing flawless performances by Alan Bates, Oliver Reed, Jennie Linden and Glenda Jackson (Best Actress Oscar) as well as some of the most resourceful use of lighting and color in Seventies cinema. Released in the U.S. in 1970, the film was Russell's first major success, and most critics were quick to point out how closely it followed D.H. Lawrence's novel. In bringing Lawrence's complex study of human love and passion to the screen, Russell made a film of both emotional impact and visual power. The way he handles the intimate encounters of the four principles is especially good, and the lovemaking in the film has all the grace and beauty of ballet, the characters caressing and embracing in fluid slow motion. "Women in Love" is an immensely complex but perfectly controlled film which displays Russell's talent for matching landscape with the emotional affinities of the people in it and infusing both with Lawrence's argument for love in the widest, freest sense. Russell's instinct for the look and feel of a film have never been so admirably in touch with the inspiration of a great artist as they were in "Women in Love". His talent to appall and abuse is what ultimately remains. In a film created with keen intelligence, integrity, and meticulous period flavor, D.H. Lawrence's ideas about life and love retain remarkable potency. [filmfactsman]
