REVIEW | The Duke of Burgundy


‘Although the term ‘Freudian’ doesn’t entirely comply with Peter Strickland’s dark yet droll vision – as little in its vortex of domination / submission is left to the imagination – this film’s psychology goes much deeper than its deceptively smooth skin, and ultimately, tells a near-Gothic tale of how we always try to be what our lovers want, even if that means destroying ourselves.’
