The Handmaiden

Another one I feel I should STFU about. Not buying the accusations of lasciviousness. But then, who am I to judge if something’s leery and male-gazey? I don’t see it.  Trust me, I know titillation and objectification

I’m seriously reserving any comment on this until I’ve had a chance to discuss it with people in a better place to judge

Obviously a stage play adaptation. Some really clunky clichés in there. But, the movie manages to take you with it across them. Just imagine how fantastic it would have been without them

Was this any good? Really don’t know. But, I defintely liked a lot about it.

Fassbender and Gleeson both doing their thing effortlessly. And, probably both better than this slight piece deserves. Despite the rolling Romany argot, it does feel an all too familiar tale of travellers; family and thieving.
