The Null Device
I went to the Cinema Nova to see Intimacy
I had been meaning to see it for a while, and as its season appears to be
tapering off I thought I'd better catch it soon. It was interesting; quite
sexually explicit though not in the least bit glamorous (it almost looked as
if they made the actors up to look less sexy than in real life; Kerry Fox looked
about 10 years older than her actual age). The soundtrack was quite well done
(triphoppy bits in street scenes, and a 1990s David Bowie number closing the
film quite fittingly). And whilst it was set in London, in English, and
based on stories by Hanif Kureishi, it had a rather French style about it
(funny, that). In some ways, it was a bit like
Une Liaison Pornographique
, only more bleak and existential.
(Hmm; may be time to track down the book.)
