Summary A complex exploration of the physical and emotional effects of trauma. A college student attempts suicide after a brutal sexual assault but is stopped by a mechanic whose kindness, however, soon takes an unsettling turn. Startlingly modern in its frankness and psychological realism, the film represents one of the purest on-screen expressions of the sensibility of the intimate community of artists around New York's Actors Studio, which transformed American cinema in the mid-twentieth century.
Note Special features: New conversation between director Jack Garfein and critic Kim Morgan; new interview with actor Carroll Baker; Behind the method, a new interview with scholar Foster Hirsch on the Actors Studio; Master Class with Jack Garfein, excerpts from a 2014 recording of one of the director's world-famous lectures on acting technique; essay by critic Sheila O'Malley.
