1990. 124 minutes, X-Rated, Directed by Peter Greenaway
"A highly controversial and distinctly original work of cinematic art fashioned by writer-director Greenaway."- Andrew Sarris, OBSERVER
"This is a shocking, confrontational film that is intended to disturb. It is also an adult film in the best sense."- John Hartl, SEATTLE TIMES
"Greenaway -- inspired by Jacobean revenge plays and Dutch masters' paintings -- stuffs the viewer with ripe images and raw language. He tests your appetite for intelligent sensation. For many it may be a daunting test, but it is worth taking."- Richard Corliss, TIME MAGAZINE
