One comment on “Kiss of the Spider Woman

  1. I cannot agree more, a fabulous film that really blew me away when I watched it when it was originally released. Up until then, I did not know that you could confine two actors in a prison cell, have them talk and argue and cry and yet still create thrilling cinema. I had not spent much thought before on either homosexuality, political activism or cinema as an art form, but this movie got a lot of thinking going. William Hurt and Raul Julia both give career-defining performances. If I remember correctly, my only regret was that the director decided to move the action out of the prison cell at one point, where the plot loses its intensity a bit.
