The trailer for Park Chan-wook's new film The Handmaiden arrived over the weekend and with less than one minute of footage managed to cram in more kink than a season of American Horror Story - it's like David Cronenberg remade In the Realm of the Senses (and I have a feeling I might be saying that exact same thing upon seeing the full-length movie). Here, watch:
The movie's not out until October, which is about ten lifetimes away -- I started the book Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, which is what it's based upon, recently but I have a feeling as if the two are going to be pretty different and not jus because the settings are so drastically different. But we'll see. And did you catch...
... that future nominee for our "Great Movies Shelves" series?
My eyes certainly did a one-eighty.
