Les lèvres rouges

Harry Kümel Belgium, 1971

Matt Burgess's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

An exquisite, hallucinatory film that's utterly perfect. Not a lot happens but it has such a unique beauty and atmosphere that it doesn't particularly matter. Glamorous lesbian aristocrats stomping around beautiful hotel rooms breathlessly recounting tales of blood drinking and nipple torture, what more could you want?
