Slowly but surely my tribute to the film that this blog took its name from is continuing at my Nastassja Kinski blog. So far I have posted some of the original scathing critical reactions the film received, some rare clippings, quotes by Nastassja, as well as some notes on the soundtrack and original David Goodis novel.
I will hopefully be posting my long review, and defense, of the film by the weekend. I will also be looking at Beineix's career, and will be sharing some of his own thoughts on the film.
This inventive and challenging film, which obviously means a lot to me, had its disastrous Cannes Film Festival premiere 24 years ago this year, and I hope my posts on it prove interesting. I recently came across a quote by Nastassja herself which I thought summed it's polarizing reaction up nicely, "It touches something they don't want to have touched."
I invite anyone interested over to take a look.
