Galileo
Rated
Bertolt Brecht's great drama of the scientist against they system: Galileo Galilei, whose doomed lifelong battles with the church were spurred by the Pope's demand that he recant his "heresies" - the "atheistic" assumption that the earth revolved around the sun. Brecht wrote the play only months before fleeing a modern-day inquisition - the HUAC - and it was originally staged (with Charles Laughton in the title role) in Los Angeles by director Joseph Losey - who gives it, here, 26 years later,a smart and stinging revival. One of the best of the American Film Theater plays.
