Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

So artificial, so stylized, it's so suffocating, but it makes me tingle all over with its cinematic power! And plus Dietrich just commands and overwhelming and sensual screen presence. I love how every movement, frame, and gesture is choreographed like a dance. It's absolutely thrilling! Von Sternberg is a master.
