The Female: Seventy Times Seven

Dir. Leopoldo Torre Nilsson (1962). Argentine sex-bomb Isabel “Coco” Sarli gets a serious role as an unhappy hooker who sees the crack in the ceiling above her bed as a portal into the past. Directed by onetime art-house name Leopoldo Torre Nilsson, The Female is tawdry, pretentious, and intermittently striking—the widescreen vision of the blasted pampas (supposedly Mexico) anticipates Sergio Leone’s old west.
