MOVIE REVIEW: THE CRUCIBLE (Nicholas Hytner, 1996)

Abigail Williams (Winona Ryder) inciting mass hysteria that played on people’s fears and religious zealotry just because she was denied a married John Proctor’s (Daniel Day-Lewis) big dick energy had to be one of the most villainous turns in cinema (and literature) history alongside that little lying witch Briony (Saoirse Ronan) in Atonement.

I related the most with Martha Corey (Mary Pat Gleason) who mockingly laughed at the devious fainting girls and said, “What else are fools good for?” which was obviously the equivalent of our local version of “Tingnan mo ang mga tangang ‘to!”.
