What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Woman with Red Boots

    Surreal in the style of his father, Luis Bunuel, but never quite attaining the perversity or power of his father's films. Catherine Deneuve & Fernando Ray, both stars of Luis Bunuel films grace this one as well, and Bunuel fans will appreciate this. Deneuve plays a hapless sorceress ("Francoise", which is the name of Deneuve's sister, killed in a tragic auto accident) lured by a perverse, wealthy "patron". 3.6 stars.
