Anatomie de l'enfer

Catherine Breillat Perancis, 2004

dionysus67's rating of the film Anatomy of Hell

Could have been an astonishing film, but although in cinematic terms Arvanitis' camera provides ample pleasures, the directness with which Breillat treats the purity/pollution (danger) binary code of sexual morals proves damaging to the film's impact. Impressive are the childhood reminiscence scenes and the theological underpinnings (Bataille) are evident beyond the obvious symbols. Porn subverted, not sublated.
