John Schlesinger's keen-eyed character studies crackle with tension as eros and ambition collide. Visually vivid tours-de-force with hunger at their hearts, these are keynote films of the sexual revolution, early warning signs of the cultural confusion to come. Here one of the most provocative living directors speaks out.

Bob, a young designer, shares his bed with lovers of both sexes, a male doctor and a female executive. This controversial 1971 film by director John Schlesinger made moviegoers squirm with its bold, bleak portrayal of unrequited love-gay, straight, and bisexual. Peter Finch, Glenda Jackson, and Murray Head give standout performances. Criterion presents the film in its original widescreen aspect ratio, with a crisp, clean new transfer.
