Lilith
Vincent Bruce (Warren Beatty) is a Korean War veteran who becomes an occupational therapist in a private mental hospital that cares for wealthy, schizophrenic clientele. He slowly begins to fall for Lilith Arthur (Jean Seberg), a patient who is mentally locked in her own little world. Vincent eventually begins his own psychological disintegration over his feelings for the woman and asks for help. Watch for early career performances from Olympia Dukakis and Gene Hackman in this depressing psychodrama. This was the final film from the gifted director Robert Rossen, who died in 1966. ~ Dan… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The awkwardness of a macho auteur attempting feminized poetry lends the work the nervousness necessary for authentic lyricism"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Much misunderstood and a commercial flop in 1964, Lilith is well acted by Warren Beatty and one of the first American films to deal with mental illness and the fine line between therapists and patients while using the stylistics of the French New Wave."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Brilliant and delicate, but also depressing and enigmatic psychodrama."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
