  • Film Review: 'The Duke of Burgundy'

    After paying elaborate tribute to Italian "giallo" horror films in his 2012 "Berberian Sound Studio," British director Peter Strickland applies much the same formula to the high-toned Euro sexploitation pics of the 1960s and '70s in "The Duke of Burgundy," here with even more striking, singular results. An act of cinephilic homage that transcends pastiche to become its own uniquely sensuous cinematic object, Strickland's densely layered, slyly funny portrayal of the sadomasochistic affair between two lesbian entomologists tips its hats to such masters of costumed erotica as Jess Franco, Tinto Brass and Jean Rollin, without ever cheapening its strange but affecting love story. A cult item to be sure, "Duke" could prove a canny art-house counter-offensive to "50 Shades of Gray" in niche theatrical play.
