brat pitt’s review published on Letterboxd:
first film i've ever seen that plays out like an I Spy game :) numbers 1-100 appear in ascending order, either disguised in the background or the characters' dialogue, which helped to keep my scattered, internet-corroded brain engaged. not that audience engagement is necessarily peter greenaway's prime objective -- the more of his (eerily fascinating) work i watch, the more it becomes evident that he caters pretty exclusively to his own personal fixations, among them mostly being death/decay, loveless marriages, and unorthodox eroticism. we #GreenawayGroupies are having a normal one!!
(also, it is active allyship for male directors to encourage sympathy for their murderess protagonists. happy to report that this is thoroughly She Did That! cinema)
