  • affasf's rating of the film Ab ovo

    Exoticism, undressed of pruriginous lithe, interprets the Bible extremities in a, purely literary, decadent afflatus. The desert doesn't open itself as potentiality – not even negative –, but as a stark contextualization assembling all prospective on the pinhead of a profoundly anti-historical brooding. Postlude of an anterior absence. Jeremiad of a primogenital corpse. Pudenda origo in extremis.
