Here's Dominique Thomas and Ella Creton in Catherine Breillat's imaginative, provocative, shocking, and hilarious adaptation of Perrault's fairy tale, Barbe Bleue (Bluebeard). I caught it at the New York Film Festival and think it a stone masterpiece, a film Breillat was absolutely born to make. (I remember the producer Jeremy Thomas once asking me, "Don't you want to see David Cronenberg make a film of Ballard's Crash?" and replying, "Oh yes, please;" I can imagine giving a similar response had someone asked me about wanting to see a Breillat Bluebeard. Sometimes dreams DO come true!) The picture's being released in the U.S. by Strand some time next year, the sooner the better as far as I'm concerned. I spoke with Breillat, always one of my favorite interview subjects, about the film when she was in New York earlier this month, and she was fascinating and fierce as always.
