Kiss of the Spider Woman

Kiss of the Spider Woman

"“Spun around politics, sexual identity and cinema, Kiss of the Spider Woman, nominated for four Oscars and the winner of one in 1986, is the consummate art film." - THE NEW YORK TIMESpopmatters.com/pm/post/kiss-of-the-spider-woman-1985"If Mr. Hurt has never been so daringly extroverted on the screen before, Mr. Julia has never been so restrained. And they meet halfway in a manner that is electrifying. Their teamwork, choreographed with a relentless, escalating rhythm by Mr. Babenco, never falters.... A BRILLIANT ACHIEVEMENT. SPIDER WOMAN unfolds slowly at first, building gradually and carefully until its momentum becomes urgent and palpable. From its droll, playful opening to its transcendent coda, it has THE MARK OF GREATNESS FROM BEGINNING TO END.”Janet Maslin, THE NEW YORK TIMES“William Hurt’s magnificent performance elevates the art of make-believe to greatness.”Rex Reed, THE NEW YORK POST"William Hurt...creates a character utterly unlike anyone else he has ever played--a frankly theatrical character, exaggerated and mannered--yet he never seems to be reaching for effects. Raul Julia, sweaty and physical in the early scenes, gradually reveals a poetry that makes the whole movie work. And Sonia Braga makes a perfect Spider Woman."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Au...

You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), Spanish ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), Spanish ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Documentary, Filmographies, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Kiss of The Spider Woman is a cinematographic adaptation of the eponymous novel of Manuel Puig. Directed in 1985 by Héctor Babenco ('Pixote', 'Carandiru',...), the film brings together Raúl Juliá, Sonia Braga, and William Hurt, who will be awarded by the Academy and the Festival of Cannes. Against a background of prison, engagement and cinema, it portrays the argentinian society during the dictatorship of the 70?s. Valentin (Raúl Juliá), revolutionary journalist, and Molina (William Hurt), an eccentric gay charged for a sordid case, are locked up in the same cell. These men that everything separates, harassed by the violence of the jail, will start a daily dialogue led by, from one hand, Valentin's ideals and, for the other, the romantic story of a film Molina reveals. This one inexorably tells the passion of a resistant fighter for a nazi officer. This framework allows to develop several levels of narration. Past (the activ...

Tangled Web: Making Kiss of the Spider Woman

A strange odyssey from novel to film is chronicled in Tangled Web: Making Kiss of the Spider Woman. Creative team Manuel Puig, William Hurt, Hector Babenco, David Weisman, Leonard Schrader, and Raul Julia confess the daunting challenge and profound satisfaction of creating this watershed film - which almost never made it to the big screen. Burt Lancaster's mysterious obsession, director Babenco's epic struggle with author Puig, the birth of today's independent cinema - all play parts in the startling saga of this timeless gem. Filmmaker David Weisman's Tangled Web captures the many unique and emotional moments that serendipitously turned this courageous movie into a masterpiece.
