The Null Device

I went to the Cinema Nova to see Intimacy tonight; 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.)
