Last night I saw a movie that revolted me so much I could not watch anymore: Pink Flamingos (1972). I can not remember when a movie had last pulled such utter revolt from me. It was to the point I was almost throwing up. Fantastic!

‘Consequences Of Love’ review
Last night Zosia took me to the Barbican where she is employed and we saw ‘Le Conseguenze dell’Amore’ (‘Consequences Of Love‘), an Italian movie directed by Paolo Sorrentino. This movie is brimming over with style and subtlety and has you engaged the whole way. The pace is slow but not unnecessary so and I found myself laughing out loud at some of the stange character interactions. The character is beautifully built up leaving you with a satisfactory truth.
But did I mention the sound track! It features music from Mogwai, James, Terranova, Boards Of Canada and Fila Brazillia. The sound track really made this movie a master piece and brought it together keeping you interested and enhancing the feeling of each scene.
The cinematography is also outstanding even though most of the scences are inside everything is well thought out and the creative camera work seem invaluable to the enhancing the mood of every shot.
This film has so much class it makes everything else out at the moment (Sin City, Episode 3) look like obvious shite.
