THE RESTORED BLU-RAY WORLD PREMIERE

In what remains the most obscure, bizarre and wildly misunderstood film of her entire career - and perhaps even '70s Italian cinema - Elizabeth Taylor stars as a disturbed woman who arrives in Rome to find a city fragmented by autocratic law, leftist violence and her own increasingly unhinged mission to find the most dangerous liaison of all. Academy Award nominee Ian Bannen (THE OFFENCE), Mona Washbourne (THE COLLECTOR) and Andy Warhol co-star in this "unique, hallucinatory neo noir" (Cult Film Freaks) - barely released in America as THE DRIVER'S SEAT - directed by Giuseppe Patroni Griffi ('TIS PITY SHE'S A WHORE), adapted from the unnerving novella by Muriel Spark (The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie) and featuring cinematography by three-time Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro (APOCALYPSE NOW, THE LAST EMPEROR), now restored in 4K by Severin Films.

    Press Quotes

    Thrillingly unique... The brilliance of Taylor's performance is that we never doubt that there is some form of mad logic driving it all.

         —VideoCult

    Enigmatic and disturbing... THE DRIVER'S SEAT is that rare film that captures a mood 40 years before its time.

         —Greenpointers

    One of Taylor's most daring, dangerous and controversial roles in a strange and challenging film that is well worth the effort.

         —Scents Memory

    A film of both desperation and pure intimacy... Taylor plays her role with breathtaking authority. Griffi's direction is also a strange delight, ranging from icy to torrid.

         —JazzWax

    Taylor is exquisite in her full-flowing, full-bodied lunacy... The film premiered at Cannes in 1974 to stunned silence, and has remained largely unseen.

         —AnOther Magazine

    An unusual and unsettling experience... It has the feel of a Fellini movie that has been edited by David Lynch. Taylor is mesmerizing.

         —The Bottle Imp

    One of Elizabeth Taylor's single most berserk performances... Why isn't this cuckoo-pops crazy film better known?

         —Dangerous Minds

    Gloriously surreal... Its non-linear narrative contributes to the overall sense of unease that our heroine feels as she cartwheels through psychosis.

         —Horror Fuel

    The apex of Elizabeth Taylor's string of unstable roles... It has a jagged elegance, gorgeous cinematography by Vittorio Storaro, and is the first visually-worthy, English-friendly release in any format.

         —Mondo Digital

    Seriously bizarre... A remarkably slick, decidedly odd and visually stunning affair that has no trouble holding your attention.

         —Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Weirdly intoxicating... Boasting one of Taylor's wildest performances complete with the kind of nerve-shredding emotional pain that the beloved actress was so talented at depicting.

         —HiDef Digest
