in 1967 director ken loach debuted his first feature film. his 'poor cow' starred two british beauties: terrence stamp and carol white. terrence thrived in the world of cinema but carol found the life too difficult. she has left behind few films but this one is super satisfying. the color is right up there with 'last tango in paris' even if painted from a different palette. while 'paris' is all golden warmth, 'poor cow' is starkly chilling. it's just beautiful.
