Based on Prime of Miss Jean Brodie author Muriel Spark’s acclaimed novel and alternately known as Identikit and Psychotic, one of Taylor’s excursions into the head-game genre spirits her to Rome as a lonely woman desperately seeking… someone to kill her? The leading lady and the film benefit from cinematography by Vittorio Storaro and costume design by Gabriella Pescucci. With Ian Bannen, Mona Washbourne, and—as a Brit aristocrat—Andy Warhol.
