Of Freaks and Men (DVD-PAL)
This deliciously subversive, beautifully photographed film by award-winning Russian director Alexei Balabanov explores the seamy underside of the early 20th century upper classes. The sinister Johann and his wicked assistant, who photograph the floggings of bare-bottomed women, maneuver their way into two well-to-do families, involving them in their pornographic schemes. Darkly humorous and startlingly original, this compelling tale reveals the manipulation and revenge, hidden passions and sadomasochistic urges, underlying the charm and propriety of Victorian society. Official Selection of the Cannes Film Festival.
