From Karel Reisz (Who’ll Stop the Rain), comes Morgan: A Suitable Case for Treatment, the 1966 cult fantasy-comedy starring Vanessa Redgrave (Julia) and David Warner (Cross of Iron) in one of his few starring roles.

A gorilla-fixated artist with distinctly anarchist tendencies, Morgan (Warner) tries to regain the affections of his divorced wife Leonie (Redgrave) by variously kidnapping her, attempting to blow up her future mother-in-law and attacking her fiancé (Robert Stephens, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes).

Cut with scenes from King Kong and Tarzan films, Morgan’s depiction of madness, dark humor and vintage performances made it one of the wilder and more provocative comedies of the ’60s.

The DVD and Blu-ray editions of the film contain an audio commentary by journalist Bryan Reesman.
