The Duke of Burgundy

The only reason I knew that this movie existed was a YouTube review of the soundtrack by Sean Rowley. The music is by a group called Cat's Eyes and it has a cool Julee Cruise vibe throughout. The film itself a slow, arty story about two women in a sort of S&M relationship. Sounds sexy right? Well, there are far more close-ups of bugs than any actual skin on the screen and I wasn't really sure if all this was supposed to be a joke. I don't want to sound judgmental, when someone longs to be a "human toilet" I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Sure, whatever floats your boat but all I know is that I don't want them preparing any meals for me.
