RIP Miklós Jancsó (1921 – 2014)

This happened in 2014 but I only found out today.

Towards the end of this review, you will find a nice set of scenes from this film.

Miklós Jancsó directed many well respected films but you can find a copy of the less respected but more interesting  Private Vices, Public Pleasures (1976) by googling for it. You will find it on a well-known porn website. The film is, along with similar outings such as The Beast (1975), typical from European sexual revolution cinema.

Domina Catherine Robbe-Grillet

The Ceremony (2014) is a documentary film directed by Lina Mannheimer which examines Catherine Robbe-Grilletnity (as dominatrix organizing ‘ceremonies’).

Catherine Robbe-Grillet (born 1930) is a French actress, photographer and writer best-known for her sadomasochistic novel L’Image.

For those of you who speak French, here is an interesting interview with Catherine when she published Alain (2012), a book on her marriage to her husband, Alain Robbe-Grillet, which lasted more than 50 years.
