This is so good. A 1972 TV broadcast of a play - Jean Anouilh's retelling of Antigone. I can imagine seeing this and totally not understanding it as a kid, only to commit certain key details to the subconscious: Stacy Keach as the urbane sexually ambiguous chorus, outdoor scenes filmed in the glass and concrete new atlantis of Lincoln Center, the lovely Geneviève Bujold getting arrested on a hillside by gestapo motorcyclists?!? I love that this is on Netflix.
