Séverine, a Paris housewife who begins secretly spending her after­noon hours working in a bordello. This surreal and erotic daydream from provocateur for the ages Luis Buñuel is an examination of desire and fetishism, as well as an absurdist take on social mores and class divisions.

Rain Man
Rain Man Buy at amazon
Disclosure movie
Disclosure Buy at amazon • Character I love: Meredith Johnson (Demi Moore)• Comment: There's nothing more important in life than the issue of Sex in the Office. Perhaps a American government branch should be erected for all sex related subject matters, with one department focusing on the law, prevention, and enforcement of sex at work. It is also commendable to invest in a tech device that can be embedded into genitals at birth, so that government can detect every illicit sexual intercourse.

The Red Dwarf Buy at amazon • Directed by Yvan Le Moine. Black and white. A bit pointless. Art for arts sake. Supremely beautiful little girl Isis Colombe (played by Dyna Gauzy). Best acting. The clown, Bob, and the girl. The film of circuses.

Three Colors Three Colors: Red • Directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski. The aspect of enjoyment for this film is watching. By that I don't mean visual treats, but rather, a story told in visual form. It is not a dramatic story. The film does not engage in sexiness or any apparent excitement of the senses. Instead, it's the aspects of telling a plain story gets you fascinated much in the same way you are curious to what happened to your old friends or acquaintances. I like the judge for his unerring confidence and decisiveness. I like the girl of her sincerity, virtue, and with her fine countenance and delicate body, beauty.
