The Arrangement (Kazan, 1969): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.30pm

This 35mm presentation, which is also screned on March 13th, is part of the Elia Kazan season at BFI Southbank. You can find the full details here.

BFI introduction:
Adapted from his own bestselling novel, Elia Kazan’s most experimental film – complete with fragmented non-linear narrative, flashbacks, fantasy sequences and sudden shifts in tone – is also partly autobiographical. It chronicles, sometimes seriously, sometimes satirically, the chaotic mid-life crisis of a Greek-American advertising executive (Kirk Douglas) torn between his wife (Deborah Kerr) and mistress (Faye Dunaway), while trying to come to terms with his feelings about his father.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
