my kind of relationship drama- and I am NOT a sick person! I think…
Bad Timing is Nicholas Roeg’s film about a relationship that is fueled by an obsessive passion, more or less, on both sides, and ends in a kind of mutual destruction. This has been fodder for many an independent film, but Roeg and his screenwriter attempt the material with a twist (Roeg, perhaps in his own distinct sensibility as an auteur, more-so). They’re attempting to dissect it by a manner that goes along with how a mind works through a relationship after the fact, through memories of what worked, what didn’t at all, what’s foggy, what’s crazy, subtle bits that connect more directly to others, and essentially reveals as much as any one person can think about the individuals in their link. Throw in a little detective/criminal mystery entanglement, some trademark Roeg editing and narrative technique, and sprinkle some of the most appropriately steamy (and appropriately disturbing) mature sexual context in a movie since Last Tango, and you’ve got a sort of cult classic.

It’s the kind of work that, as someone who loves getting a filmmaker who approaches things from a skewed perspective almost like an intellectual, is nearly inspiring. I didn’t gain mind-blowing Bergmanesque insights into the realm of a torn relationship, but it’s enough to squash competition that might show up late at night on IFC. It deals with a psychology professor, Alex Linden (Art Garfunkel, the most unlikely of male leads for a sexually charged and complex individual, but out-does his previous turn in Carnal Knowledge as a subtle performer of a man in total emotional crisis), and his romance with young Milena (the extraordinary Theresa Russel, arguably her best performance to date, soul pouring out like it’s her one and only chance to shine), who is possibly already married to a much older man across the Vienna border (Denhalm Elliot, great in his few scenes).

They have powerful lust and some good times, even in Morocco of all places, but… they just don’t click, due to Alex not being able to let go of what Milena does, almost in a “every breath you take” style (watch as the Who’s “Who Are You” is used in the most stirring effect imaginable). Without saying too much, something terrible happens to Milena, a hospital stay occurs, and an investigation (overnight, of course) happens between a detective (long-haired Harvey Keitel, compelling even when it’s only in the smallest, two-note spurts) which leads to a test of pure existential upheaval. But Roeg firstly approaches the style like it’s a shuffleboard of images and scenes, moods and thoughts, and it’s a wonderful experiment in subjective approach. Many post-modern filmmakers only wish to try and make a film dealing with genre (i.e. crime/gangsters) like this, but Roeg does it sometimes subliminally, cut-aways implying sexual interaction and obsession that go the opposite way of the pondering style of a Last Tango (i.e. the operation scene, a cut-away between a tense gynecological exam during surgery and sex).

The other thing that Roeg wisely does, as he did do sort of in Walkabout, is to let the actors play up to their strengths. While it was trickier to to as a director, and to actually notice in the finished product, in Walkabout, in Bad Timing there are countless scenes where we see the actors tapping into the characters full-throttle, and revealing little layers in the script that wouldn’t be present in a more conventional treatment. It’s simple to say this kind of material would get shut out at the door in Hollywood. Sure it would; it’s a tale where lurid details (and truly disturbing ones, more-so for how they linger in the mind than how they’re shown) seem to mask the more vulnerable shades of the story. But it’s difficult to say that it might have more appeal than the one infamous quote “a sick movie made by sick people for sick people” seems to suggest.

It is rough going at times, and not your grandmother’s story of love gone awry. But it challenges perceptions and tries to pierce through certain concepts of what men expect from women and women expect from men: the lies, the hiding, being open, being free, being who we are in front of one another. At the end, what is the “bond” in a relationship? Do we know one another really? Roeg leaves it up to us to decide… in his sick way. And it’s one of my favorites of 1980.Read More
