Watch Equus - Alternative Versions.
A rare and masterful adaptation of a piercing psychological stage drama. An
emotionally unstable young man trying to come to terms with his love and
erotic attraction as well as religious like worship of horses. Absolutely
I remember when I saw this on stage, reading in the program, that the
Peter Schafer was traveling through the English countryside when he
to come across a local news story of a young man who had blinded 6 horses
a nearby stable. Hence the basis for this story. So in a way it's a true
one, with the details behind the event being Schafer's invention. Something
in itself quite remarkable. It's hard to image someone taking that bit of
information and fabricating anything more probing or riveting than this.
This work takes full advantage of the possibilities of the screen yet
retains the intimate feel of a play. Especially effective are Richard
Burton's monologues directed to the viewer with enough food for thought to
last through many a viewing. Also thought provoking are his conversations
with a female colleague about his experience with this emotionally
The way nudity is handled in this film is also a rare pleasure. Unashamedly
presented in all it's natural beauty, both male and female. Most films seem
to act like male nudity is just too shocking for us to handle.
It's curious to me that a number of reviews that I've read by professional
critic's seem to have been made too uncomfortable with the depth and
intensity of this film to give it the top rating that it deserves. Few
have dared be this bold, yet simple in it's natural telling of a highly
unusual act of violence by a young man emotionally out of control and all
the darkness that lie beneath.
Also interesting is a story such as this where the therapy and healing
taking place seems to be shared equally by patient and doctor. No other
has played that angle with the understanding of Equus.
It's a shame this film is so under appreciated. It should easily be in the
top 250 and quite possibly the top 100 of all time. The fact it has only
votes at Imdb is evidence of it's undeserved obscurity.
Rent this when your ready for something profound and unforgettable.
