“a tempting sample of sexual ripeness”Posted: February 22, 2012
Found a copy of a screener of “Anton Chekhov’s The Duel” at work. Duels are exciting and dramatic, and a good subject for a movie, I thought. So I watched the trailer.
I looked the movie up online and learned that The New Yorker called the film “a tempting sample of sexual ripeness.”
Based on the first eleven minutes, I can’t say I agree. There were some boobs, maybe that’s what The New Yorker was talking about? but they were presented rather coldly, not as a source of fun or joy.
I’ll report back if I watch the rest.
