  1. angelicidea's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    A stylishly realised strange world of women, but somehow does not add up to a coherent whole.

  2. RumbleFish's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    Surreale ed ammaliante fantasia di entomologhe BDSM che vivono in un mondo di sole donne ma che devono comunque fare i conti coi problemi di tutte le coppie

  3. Jack Among the Actors's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    The atmosphere of the sixties erotica is captured very well, without becoming camp. The film is larded with suggestive, powerful images. Reminded me of 'Persona'.

  4. mpho3's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    "Above all TDOB invokes the art-house porn affect instantly recognizable to retro trash enthusiasts. But far from being mere pastiche or parody, the film manifests Strickland’s rigorous regard for the form and determination to both honor and elevate it. With deeply committed performances ... TDOB holds the viewer as riveted and exposed as a butterfly pinned to a board." - Steven Mears, Film Comment. 4.5 stars

  5. Shahin Katila's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

  6. Diderot's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    No one is more demanding than a masochist, especially when total oblivion is never part of the plan. It's child's play but with higher stakes. And the look of pure titillation on Chiara D'Anna's face at the mention of a "human toilet" is priceless. In sum, Strickland successfully makes an old-fashioned soft-core with characters and substance.

  8. ehk2's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

  9. Nikita Rasskazov's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    A kind of film that attempts to move art forward — non-linear editing without clear borders of time, repetition as a method, interweaving sound and colour, oscillation between pure abstraction and objectivity — it is all hear, arranged with ascetic and powerful acting.

  10. blyniukas's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    Magic. Athmosopheric. And quite revelatory in its twist:}

  15. érzéki's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    The way Strickland creates the ambience in this film is remarkable, but he does it without it making one of those plotless arthouse films. He creates a lesbian BDSM film without being male gaze-y in regards to lesbians or BDSM. Sidse Babett Knudsen is brilliant, the chemistry between the actresses is palpable, and right yes there are no males at all whatsoever in the whole film. And then there's the score. 5/5

  16. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    Pure arthouse experience. Goes to show what the medium is capable of.

  17. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    The film has two gorgeous details: the music of Cat's Eyes and director/screenplaywriter Strickland's fascinating details of butterfies/moths right up to the end-credits. Those details transcend everything else. The camerawork and editing are noteworthy. And Ms Sisde Babett Knudsen, the Danish actress, turned out to be very interesting. This film had a Hungarian touch more than a British one, methinks.

  18. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    A beautifully tender magical trip

  19. thay's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    i've already liked it enough before that but now that i know this was supposed to be a homage to Jess Franco i think i love it. also reminded me of so many things i like in cinema.

  20. Mugino's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    Female sexuality is amplified in this brilliantly stylized film without men, boxed in and magnified like the insects encased in glass. The BDSM roles are likewise deconstructed, where rote and repetition betray an entrapment of desire and the power struggle between the lovers. "Oh, if we could all just say 'Pinastri' to end our torments."

  21. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    Im Grunde müsste ich hin und weg sein von Peter Stricklands neuem Film (denn ich gehöre wohl doch zur Zielgruppe: Männlich, cinephil, sogar Videothekar!). Wieder unternimmt er eine Reise zurück in die Filmgeschichte. Diesmal taucht er ein in die 70er Jahre Sexploitation mit ihren billigen Sado-Maso Effekten... die ganze Rezension gibts auf cinegeek.de

  22. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    (4) An exploration of the give and take which goes on within a relationship, selfless love against dutiful compromise, through the story of a sado-masochistic lesbian couple. The sado-masochism is very tasteful, the film is intelligently surreal, and I found parts of it very funny too!

  23. julia.s's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

  24. Jacob Bearchum's rating of the film The Duke of Burgundy

    Fantastic cinematography, terrific editing, brilliant score, gorgeous design work. Absolutely superb film. Specific and pointed in its themes but esoteric enough that they're malleable, which makes it all the more relatable and universal.
