A Night to Dismember [1983 Doris Wishman]

:

"[Food] is one of my persistent obsessions that had its source in my childhood. I was a child who did not want to eat. My parents were desperate. They would pour fish oil, fortified wine and various other liquids into me to enhance the taste of food, and they would send me to ‘fattening’ camps and other such places. I ended up so weakened and bony that I could not stand and my mum had to push me in a wheelchair. I was not even accepted in school. Besides, a chewing mouth is quite a fitting symbol of this aggressive, all-devouring civilization." [x]

"Food is perhaps the most apt symbol of our civilization because in its insatiable aggression, our civilization consumes everything around us: nature, animals, whole ethnic groups, cultures… everything gets digested in its utilitarian maw only to be excreted as money—the excrement of our times. Just like a small child our civilization considers its excrements to be the most valuable product it managed to squeeze out, and uses it to reward its favorites." [x]

Jan Švankmajer on the recurrent theme of food in his films.

About:

foxesinbreeches' depository for cinematic masturbation.

Pervasive themes include nuns, noir, trash, art-wank, viscera, boobs, surrealism, and varying combinations thereof.

Here, we dream longingly of resurrecting the respectively pickled cadavers of Divine and Oliver Reed for a neo-noir Sapphic nun film based loosely on The Story of the Eye, made highbrow through an aspiring Bernard Herrmann soundtrack written by Goblin, and recycling the dolphin fountain pool last used for Showgirls as a chief prop.

Submissions welcome. Ask away too, but it should be noted that we're currently unable to explain why remaking The Wicker Man, I Spit On Your Grave or Sisters was ever considered, nor why Bitter Moon exists.
