  • According to King, when the film was released, audiences split their sympathies, some siding with Billy, others with Antoinette, “often projecting their own vision upon the characters,” and seeing what they wanted to see. This is the strange and effective ambiguity of the often hilarious and occasionally disturbing A Married Couple, though in all honesty I would hope it would be hard for anyone to side with a man who calls his wife a “stupid cunt” when he thinks she’s vacuuming wrong.

  • Even with minimal personnel floating around, it’s still shocking how nakedly the Edwardses interact with one another throughout the film, not just in explosive arguments, but also in more gestural moments of domestic awkwardness.
