Johnny's comments:

Thanatomorphose is a Canadian body shock horror movie about a woman (Kayden Rose) who begins to notice strange things happening to her body. She seems to be bruising very easily, her nails seem to be coming off and she is feeling very cold. She is also a highly sexual woman and even as her health deteriorates, her sexual appetite doesn't rescind. Later, it seems like she is decaying, but she isn't interested in seeing a doctor to help her, more interested in getting off and if she can't, the woman is becoming quite violent. Strange movie that gets more and more disturbing the longer it goes. It's a fascinating look at a woman who is physically falling apart, but desperately tries to keep it together by her own self, rejecting all help (rather stupidly it would seem). While not a lot goes on in the movie and the pace is glacial, Thanatomorphose never feels boring and is well worth a look if you can stomach watching someone decay very graphically.

And Kayden Rose spends an abundant amount of time very naked in this movie, but that nudity gets uglier by the minute. That last video is full of decaying effects and maggots ...

TV/Film Clips

Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos in Blue is the Warmest Color (2013). This is the first really good look at the film festival favorite. It's still just a cam, but a very good cam.

Elodie Navarre in Le Verrou (2013) in 720p

Joely Richardson in Drowning by Numbers (1988). I was surprised to see that this film came out 25 years ago, and then I felt old and frail when I looked up Joely's age and found out that she's become granny-age behind my back and has a 21-year-old daughter (actress Daisy Bevan). 2013 marks Joely's 45th year in movies. Yeah, I know she started as a toddler, but still ... how can that be?

Bernadette Lafont (and Francoise Lebrun) in La maman et la putain (1973)
