Hey, anyone whose career (like Losey's) encompasses Mozart and Hammer Studios and Robert Ryan is all right in *my* book ...
I'd love to hear more about the director who might be described, Bunuel-fashion, as "The Obscure Object-ifier of Desire."
Perhaps, given the RARA-AVARIAN focus, one should begin with his Daniel Mainwaring collaboration,"The Lawless," or his Cain-esque "The Prowler"? I haven't seen either one, but my curiosity is certainly stirred.


P.S. And wasn't there brief talk of Losey's directing "Wake In Fright"?
