Identikit (1974, ITA) C-102m. ** D: Giuseppe Patroni Griffi. Starring Elizabeth Taylor, Ian Bannen, Guido Mannari, Mona Washbourne, Luigi Squarzina, Andy Warhol. Not uninteresting psycho drama about a psychotic, fourty-ish woman (Taylor) who leaves her home in Germany and travels 'south' to Italy, where she has many bizarre encounters. In flash forwards, we find out about a police investigation dealing with her possible murder. Rather heavy-handed stuff, with Liz in one of her poor acting choices of the 70s, although she was apparently influenced by her divorce from Richard Burton here; how intriguing if she had really felt that way at the time. From the director of ADDIO, FRATELLO CRUDELE / 'TIS PITY SHE'S A WHORE (1970), based on the Muriel Spark novel. Photographed by Vittorio Storaro. Also known as THE DRIVER'S SEAT, and more aptly, PSYCHOTIC.
