guess ive moved on to joseph losey having watched the go-between on amazon prime and queued up accident and the servant. was unfamiliar with it and those other two though ive seen modesty blaise! not a lot happens but it was fairly engaging, a snapshot of the idle rich in late victorian england through the eyes of the outsider child. pretty understated throughout. theres very little in the way of dramatic set pieces where characters are confronted with their misdeeds. i completely missed a major plot point because it was presented as practically an afterthought. whats somewhat unique is we see the child 50 years on and what sort of impact it had on his psyche. seems like a movie critics appreciated more than audiences. also, julie christie in period costume in never a bad thing.
