The Magus

type
  • Movie

Part of Fox’s three-disc Michael Caine ”Classics” series (along with Deadfall and Peeper), The Magus is hardly a classic. Caine, in his Cockney Adonis phase, plays a horny British schoolteacher who takes a post on a remote Greek island and becomes the pawn in an existential game of cat and mouse orchestrated by the leathery Quinn. Bergen, never easier on the eyes, is the femme fatale. Read the John Fowles book it’s adapted from instead. Now that‘s a classic.

EXTRAS
A bio of Fowles and a trailer. Big whoop.
