Driver's Seat a/k/a Identikit

Elizabeth Taylor stars in this lurid pile of eurotrash as a woman in  rainbow dress who travels overseas to plot a murder. We are privy to her shopping woes and the interrogation of fellow travelers who crossed her path en route to her destination. If you like horrid dialogue , overacting and tons of titillation with Liz Taylor this is the movie for you. She starts the movie throwing a tantrum about a stain resistant dress and taking off her blouse while surrounded by mannequins. The absurdity of the movie is punctuated by a mostly piano driven score that wants to set this movie as an art-house endeavor versus exploitation of a screen legend who took a gig for the money.  C-
