Nymphomaniac review: behold the alien Woman

20 March 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A salacious yet also tedious portrayal of a woman who would appear to confirm all the nastiest stereotypes about women. Completely unfun, unpleasant, unerotic, and unenlightening. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Lars von Trier

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

In a cinematic environment in which women were depicted, overall, as fully rounded human beings with a wide range of sexual expression available to them without judgment or disapproval, Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac would still be a disgusting, degrading portrait of a terrible person that is completely unfun, unpleasant, unerotic, and unenlightening. But in the cinematic environment we actually have, it is a salacious yet also tedious portrayal of a woman who would appear to confirm all the nastiest stereotypes about women: that they sexually prey upon and sexually manipulate men purely for the power rush of it, »

The Invisible Woman review: sometimes it’s hard to be a woman

6 February 2014 4:55 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The story of Charles Dickens and his secret mistress is no romance, and no modest costume drama, either. It’s a tale of women being practical because they had to be. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast, love Dickens

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

His novels were full of life, and so was Charles Dickens himself… though not always in the most socially acceptable ways. Not for his restrictive Victorian times, and not necessarily in ways that would considered cool today, either. Dickens had a mistress for the last 12 years of his life, for instance, a fact dug up by biographer Claire Tomalin for her book The Invisible Woman, a relationship all but erased from history at the time in order to hide the scandal of it. Fittingly, then, this adaptation »

4 February 2014 2:18 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Kristin Scott Thomas, one of film's most acclaimed and prolific actresses, says that she's essentially retiring from screen acting after three decades and sixty five films.

In a lengthy interview with The Guardian, the 53-year-old actress says this decision came about suddenly in September: "I just suddenly thought, I cannot cope with another film. I realised I've done the things I know how to do so many times in different languages, and I just suddenly thought, I can't do it any more. I'm bored by it. So I'm stopping."

She goes on to say: "The kinds of films that I do are usually quite rapidly put together, and it always seems to be a little bit of a shambles. I like filming, but what I don't like is having to rearrange things and rewrite scenes. I just can't be bothered. I'm often asked to do something because I'm going to »
