like nothing else: "carnal knowledge" (1971) by mike nichols

its impossible to be disappointed by any film directed by mike nichols and this 1971 effort re-enforces such a sentiment. candice bergen is brilliant - actually, all four of the main cast members are brilliant. three acts, countless relationship quests, awe-inspiring cinematography, a dazzling dance sequence with art garfunkel and real, knitty-gritty magic that captures the spirit of 70s cinema, the stuff that i live for!
