For her kinky update of The Taming of the Shrew, Wertmüller reteams gorgeous green-eyed muses Mariangela Melato and Giancarlo Giannini as a vacationing society dame and her Communist servant locked in the ultimate battle of the sexes (and classes) after they’re stranded together on a deserted island. Never mind the unfortunate Madonna remake—this bracing, sexy, riotous political fable, one of the most argued-about films of the 1970s, has to be reseen to be believed. (Female Trouble: Lina Wertmüller)
