DARLING - DVD (707 words)
The film is stultifying in its old-bourgeois disapproval of what used to be condescendingly referred to as "the younger generation," and as it ticks off the sins of its titular protagonist, Darling only makes you hate the filmmakers for being so high and mighty.
The film is so self-consciously "serious" that it counts out any and all pleasure as shallow and destructive, leaving a grimy austerity that is as taken with surfaces as the woman it's supposed to be indicting.
With no pleasurable alternative to Diana's reign of error, the film draws a line in the sand and tallies things up: the sober high culture represented by Robert (and a great but out-of-print author he interviews) is pitted against the transient culture of youth, good times, and, presumably, moral corruption.
W. Scott Darling: Information from Answers.com (672 words)
William Scott Darling (May 28, 1891 - October 29, 1951) was a Canadian-born writer and a pioneer screenwriter and film director in the Hollywood motion picture industry.
In 1914, Scott Darling was hired by the Kalem Company of New York City to work at their California studios writing the scripts for the adventure film serial The Hazards of Helen.
Six years after directing his last silent film, Scott Darling tried his hand at directing a sound film in the United Kingdom but was unable to devote the time necessary to attempt to develop the directorial skills required for the rapidly changing technology.
