Having written (a long time ago) an article about George Bataille’s transgressive litterary experience around sexuality, sacrifice, sublimation and bizarre cosmogonies I was curious to see this movie. totally disappointing and unfaithful to the book. Looks more like a mindless and poorly imaginative hardcore porn with elements of punk industrial culture / neo-goth, in a nasty provocative way.
a dull waste of film and other (scarce) resources. not a single good idea on how to represent Bataille's opus. crappy porn and nothing of the freshness, of the genius that is expressed in the "Story of the Eye". Hopefully, G.B. is not here to see how a masterpiece can be disgustingly soiled.
