It looks like it'll be on all4 afterwards, for those that can't tape it.

Do watch it, it's a fantastic film.

Beautiful film!

If you are in the mood for some films that influenced Strickland then look here, and please watch Morgiana (1972).

Some fingering going on. Looked Bergman. Was too drunk listening to The B52s to notice to be honest
Enjoyed Over The Hedge a few days ago on Film4 if that means anything (it doesn't)

I liked Katalin Varga when I saw it a few years ago
But for me Strickland is one of those nu-directors like Wheatley & Panos Cosmatos whose esteem depends on whether you've seen the films he's seen

No it isn't!
But ya know what I mean it's very a festival-oriented approach to film. Like Richard Stanley never existed 20 year ago

I like varga. Although I'm not sure what you say about Strickland is quite correct. I hadn't seen the films he'd seen, I loved In Fabric then watched his other films too. Which sent me on a trip to his films. Someone here tipped me off to morgiana and then I ended up watching some giallos. If a director can take inspiration from other films, and it prompts you to watch the source and enjoy it, then that's good work imo.

That's quite a simplification. Can you give an example of where this esteem differs based on knowledge of its predecessors?

Indeed, I would say material that depends on direct references isn't that common in his work, that the viewer is aware that graphic Italian horror films or that stylised sex heavy films were made in the 70's seems like enough and that's going to be pretty universal.

Honestly with Duke I felt that for all the style its success was really built on being a heartfelt romantic drama, the BDSM elements seem used as more a way of making the film as a whole strongly sexual without being that graphic.

I agree. The Duke of Burgundy, and all his films, are based on creating an atmosphere or mood rather than evoking particular films. They do copy other films (as do every other director's films), but their success depends on the quality of what is depicted, not on recognising what is being copied. Anna Biller is someone who does similar things, but her work is even more focused on art direction. With both directors, you're appreciating the artistry that goes into it (the direction, art design, costumes, photography, music, etc), not ticking off a checklist of references - it's the antithesis of Scary Movie "this prop was in Silence of the Lambs so I'm not doing any work" half-assed parody filmmaking.

If it's on free streaming or has been broadcast free recently, you're legally allowed to download a better copy I reckon. Them's the rules.

Every film should state what perfume is being used in the film in the opening credits.
