Lilith 1964
Brilliant and delicate, but also depressing and enigmatic psychodrama. The final film by the great, yet underrated Robert Rossen (All the King’s Men; The Hustler) is a compelling tale of love, madness, and forbidden desire.

Once again living at home, troubled ex-soldier Vincent Bruce (Warren Beatty) takes a counseling position at a private mental hospital. Dr. Bea Brice (Kim Hunter) encourages Vincent to stay on the job despite his self-doubt. He soon becomes emotionally entangled with a patient, the enigmatic Lilith Arthur (Jean Seberg). Stephen (Peter Fonda) is another patient hopelessly in love with the manipulative, mysterious woman. Vincent breaks all the rules to be with Lilith, an obsession that is eroding his personality.

The Guardian Interview with Warren Beatty is an audio career retrospective with the actor done in 1990. This comes with a warning about "a range of technical problems". This actually is authored to play under the actual film, as a kind of quasi-commentary track, and lasts until circa 1:26:30.

The Suffering Screen (1080p; 24:45) is a really interesting visual essay by Amy Simmons which explores how films have treated madness in women.

The Many Faces of Jean Seberg (1080p; 7:53) is an appreciation of the actress by Pamela Hutchinson.
