The Duke of Burgundy
From the critically acclaimed writer-director of Berberian Sound Studio comes a tale of passion and sadomasochism that penetrates the deepest depths of what it means to be human, in love and in control. Cynthia is an orthopterist who is seemingly firmly in control of her partner Evelyn through a strict, dictatorial fetish life behind closed doors. But as Evelyn's requests to be dominated become increasingly extreme the true nature of their relationship begins to surface. The Duke of Burgundy is a story about power and the exploration of discomfort that people will stretch to for the ones they love, told in mesmerisingly coruscating style by one of Britain's finest contemporary auteurs, Peter Strickland.
Both the gothic scenery and haunting score envelop the senses and manipulate the viewer into a feeling of frenzy. An act of cinephilic homage that transcends pastiche to become its own uniquely sensuous cinematic object. Full review. The Duke of Burgundy is hair-raisingly kinky stuff, although only after a while do we realise the film itself is engaged in role-play with its audience It's a considerable work of art, and one that touches on a rarely discussed side of human sexuality completely free of judgement.
