Moviedrome Mondays: Carnal Knowledge (1971)

Since I could not find a youtube video link to Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox’s introduction to director Mike Nichols sexually frank 1971 drama Carnal Knowledge, readers will have to rely on Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was May 29, 1994 (read here). I am with Cox on this one in that it never really achieves it’s aims. Despite excellent performances from it’s cast, the emotional drama never really ignites or fascinates like it should.

Here is a youtube video link to the film’s original theatrical trailer
