LAST TANGO IN PARIS, 1972, Park Circus/MGM, 136 min. Dir. Bernardo Bertolucci. Marlon Brando gives one of the finest performances of his career in a sensual exploration of the dark night of one man’s soul – a movie that sent shockwaves through not just the motion picture industry but society at large when it was initially released and continues to generate controversy to this day. Expatriate American Paul (Brando) tries to exorcise the demons unleashed by his wife’s suicide with the erotic assistance of young waif Jeanne (Maria Schneider). But there’s no escape and Paul’s lovemaking brings him neither the desired relief nor intimacy, something that is ruthlessly charted in director Bernardo Bertolucci’s erotic masterpiece. No one under 17 admitted.
