Has anyone seen Strickland’s The Duke of Burgundy yet? I’m told it’s his ‘tribute’ to Jess Franco, Jean Rollin, Radley Metzger, ‘Eurotica,’ and the like, and while I’m not really wild about ‘let’s-make-a-tribute-to-a-genre-so-we-can-skip-over-the-genre’ filmmaking, there has been so so so little released in 2014 that’s worth seeing. This and the new Roy Andersson are the only films listed at TIFF this year that caught my eye. I’m sure there are others worth seeing, 
If it’s true that the film is a tribute to Franco, Rollin, et al, the concept has eluded most of the critics who’ve seen it and written something about it so far save, strangely, Leslie Halpern and Robbie Collin (…and I guess Joshua Rothkopf from Time Out New York saw a Radley Metzger film once). Everyone else, as usual, namedrops David Lynch or Ingmar Bergman -the defaults for anything dealing with ‘surreal’ content or ‘surrealism’ (another concept of which critics today seem to have a limited grasp). Yawn. This is what I’m talking about when I talk about the limited cinematic vocabulary of critics and filmgoers.
So anyway…has anyone seen it?
