So what’s on over the Valentine’s weekend? A trio of erotic cinema that would make Christen Grey blush!
Tomorrow sees faux-instructional erotica The Language of Love, which is the same film Robert De Niro take Cybill Sheperd to see in Taxi Driver and Cliff Richard and 30,000 others protested upon its release. Following that on Saturday is In The Realm of Senses, a Japanese movie known for its un-simulated and graphic sexual content – which is still censored in Japan to this day! But here, it’s in its full uncut glory (poor word choices there, sorry).
And lastly on Sunday it’s Michael Winterbottom’s The Killer Inside Me starring Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson which explores, in a stylish, violent and ultimately unsettling way, the powerful three-way relationship between love, sex and violence.
