Nun-sense Incarnate!

Just in time for  all this annual religious shit, a gift! Paul Verhoeven's blaspheme-licious (TM Me) Benedetta is rentable on all your online renting services -- here is a link to Amazon where the film can be purchased for such purposes as you see fit, presumably of the eyeball sort, but who am I to judge. I reviewed the movie right here when it screened at NYFF in September, and having re-watched it last week I can tell you my opinion has not changed. I want every single one of you to be watching this over the holidays, and if you've gone home to visit relatives I want every single one of you to force your relatives to watch it. Paul Verhoeven is as ever the showman, incapable of boring for a single solitary second even as he makes caustic commentary on institutional hypocrisy of every sort. My god!
