Oh, body, be held now by whom you love.
Whole years will be spent, underneath these impossible stars,
when dirt’s the only animal who will sleep with you
& touch you with
The Three Beggars
I was somewhat ambivalent and/or mayhaps underwhelmed by this film, supposedly scandalous / obscene / misogynistic / gynophobic / deeply polemical as it branded (and at this, I can’t muster up the spittle to comment), but I do love some of these more gothic fairytale-ish images wrought from it.
