The greatest credit for the implacable engagement that the film creates for its audience must go to the director, Mike Nichols. Nichols makes a stunning film bow with Virginia Woolf. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- It's one of the Academy's black marks that Burton didn't win the Best Actor Oscar for his remarkable, career-capping performance. Full Review

Rating: 9/10 -- [Haskell Wexler's] camera work is highly expressive, using odd angles, unusual close-ups, and handheld shots to mirror the out-of-kilter nature of the characters' worlds.

Edward Albee's vitriolic stage portrayal of domestic blisslessness translated grainily and effectively to the screen. Full Review

[Taylor] is nothing less than brilliant as the shrewish, slovenly. blasphemous, frustrated, slightly wacky, alcoholic wife of a meek, unambitious assistant professor of history at a university, over which her father reigns as president. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

You are cordially invited to George and Martha's for an evening of fun and games... Elizabeth Taylor delivers an Academy Award-winning performance opposite Richard Burton in this adaptation of Edward Albee's groundbreaking Broadway play that rips the façade of civility off the dysfunctional marriage between an alcoholic college professor and his shrew of a wife during a dinner party the two host for a young couple. Special features on this 2-DVD special edition include commentary by directors Mike Nichols and Steven Soderbergh, commentary by cinematographer Haskell Wexler, a vintage biographical portriat of Elizabeth Taylor titled "An Intimate Portrait", two new featurettes ("A Daring Work of Raw Excellence" and "Too Shocking for its Time"), a Mike Nichols' interview from 1966, a Sandy Denny screen test, and a movie trailer gallery.
