John Schlesinger followed his iconic Midnight Cowboy with this deeply personal take on love and sex. Sunday Bloody Sunday depicts the romantic lives of two Londoners, a middle-aged doctor and a prickly thirtysomething divorcée--played with great sensitivity by a href='/character?pid=2303'>Peter Finch and Glenda Jackson--who are sleeping with the same handsome young artist (Murray Head). A revelation in its day, this may be the seventies most intelligent, multitextured film about the complexities of romantic relationships.

The Best movie you'll ever see with the word "bloody" in its title by JRosha July 7, 2005 - 12:23 AM PDT

This movie, made in 1970, is the most contemporary movie I've seen. Its not neccessarily the plot that does it, its the relatable characters, and believable dialogue. Its the sound that got me, one might as well be in London, 1970.
At some point watching the movie, I realized that I was experiencing the movie through Alexandra (Glenda Jackson, who bears an unreasonable resemblance to Franke Potente) and counterpart Daniel (Peter Finch) at any moment they were on screen. The one moment they appear on screen together is a heady and rewarding experience.
