Does that make me crazy?
Yes, yes, it probably does.
Delivering one of the most committed performances in film history, Marilyn Burns goes totally bonkers as a woman staying one frantic step ahead of a meat-hungry family.
It’s easy to look scared onscreen.
Burns does something else entirely, seeming to slip out of sanity.
There are moments when she seems totally unhinged — as you would be if a large gentleman with a forever-buzzing saw was stalking you — and, in those moments, this feels real.
Good lord, did she sell mania like no other actress before, or after her.
