Psyche 59 (Blu-ray)


Contentious British Drama

- +

Patricia Neal (fresh from her 1963 award-winning role in Martin Ritt's Hud) stars as a woman suffering from hysterical blindness, and a blank in her memory which may hide the cause of her affliction. When she and her sex-addict husband (Curt Jurgens - The Enemy Below, The Spy Who Loved Me) move in with her younger sister (Samantha Eggar - The Collector, The Brood), she begins to piece together the events leading to her psychological trauma.

Ahead of its time in its discussion and depiction of all manner of taboo subjects (rape, child abuse, nymphomania, psycho-sexual disorder, masochism), Psyche 59 is one of British cinema's most daring and provocative adult dramas.
