DVD Review – Romance (1999)

10 November 2014 2:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Romance, 1999.

Directed by Catherine Breillat.

Starring Caroline Ducey, Sagamore Stévenin, François Berléand and Rocco Siffredi.

Synopsis:

A sexually frustrated woman embarks on a series of encounters with different men to satisfy her need for physical intimacy.

Romance was originally released in 1999 and caused something of a stir amongst critics and audiences alike due to its sexually graphic content, but Romance isn’t a film meant to titillate or excite. Instead it’s a film that’s meant to explore the difference between the physical and the emotional, what it means to love and not be loved in the same way in return and how context is key when it comes to what is deemed acceptable in the confines of a relationship.

Marie (Caroline Ducey) is a schoolteacher whose partner Paul (Sagamore Stévenin) hasn’t touched her in months and refuses to let himself be touched by her. He does love »

The top 25 greatest Jason Statham films

14 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

How do you rank perfection? Duncan has a go, as he lists the top 25 Jason Statham films...

For regular Den Of Geek readers, it will come as little surprise to see this list come round. We've chosen our favourite Statham films before, but such is the productivity of the great man, it was decided that a mere top ten was no longer large enough to contain his ever growing body of work. Last time I mentioned updating this piece to the man himself back in 2012 due to his insane workload, he cracked up and responded, “My productivity is overwhelming! 'Have a fucking day off!'”

Since this list has now expanded to encompass 25 of his movies, it seemed only right to include multiple sequels, with his big trio of action franchises all spawning some thoroughly entertaining fare worthy of mention, though I’ve tried to exclude the personal bias that »
