Do you remember how powerfully sensual, how erotically charged "Leaving Las Vegas" was? Me neither! But apparently the director of the movie version of that pretty-okay book, Mike Figgis, is a pretty spicy guy. Here's a piece on his new film, which you know also has artistic merit because it has parentheses in it. From the Hollywood Reporter:
In Mike Figgis' new movie, The Co(te)lette Film, three female dancers wag their hips while on all fours, grind against each other and suggestively spread their legs while stone-faced men surrounding a stage look on intently. The emotionally freighted piece — which explores issues of desire, sensuality, female objectification and the search for satisfaction — will have its U.S. premiere at the Dance Camera West film fest this weekend on Saturday June 18 at the Hammer Museum’s Billy Wilder Theater.
