Anatomie de l'enfer

Catherine Breillat Perancis, 2004

Renton47's rating of the film Anatomy of Hell

The last film to make me this weak-kneed and queasy was de Van's 'In My Skin', to an extent another film about women's bodies as the receptacle for lust and hate. Here Breillat removes the lust to focus on her suggested "hell", a claim warranted by seeing this in a cinema with plenty of walk-outs. The criticism is in-built, and I'm happy to cop to discomfort in return for the vile shit we (men) put on the screen.
