This week’s fluffy kitties are actually murder weapons from Dario Argento’s Inferno (1980). Because horror movies just aren’t about cats getting hurt! Sometimes, they’re about cats hurting people. And now, the links…
- Patrick Stewart (yes, Captain Picard) on “the legacy of domestic violence.” A really brave, true piece.
- Some of the best reactions to the new Sight & Sound poll results include those by Jim Emerson, Kevin B. Lee, and Richard Brody.
- I adore videos like this: “Faces: 105 of Cinema’s Most Beautiful Close-Ups.”
- Check out Murat Palta’s “Classic Movies in Miniature Style,” mixing Ottoman art with A Clockwork Orange, Alien, and more.
My favorite search term of the week was ”меланхоличный эротизм,” which is Russian for “melancholy eroticism.” Also someone searched for “butt secks,” which is always funny.
