I grabbed Joker and Little Monsters this week, and can I say that Little Monsters absolutely entertained me beyond belief. What a laugh.

It's excellent. Be warned. Don't watch it if you are feeling down, it really isn't a cheery film at all.

Here's my review.

Dans Ma Peau (In my Skin) 2004

A woman who falls and suffers deep gashes in her leg becomes obsessed with her body leading to extreme forms of self harming.

Dans Ma Peau is a beautiful yet extremely harrowing journey of a womans psychosis. Its difficult for me to judge on self harming as it isn't something i've ever done nor known anyone who's done it. The fact she has a stable relationship with her boyfriend, indeed they are house hunting, been promoted at work and is welcome at the most upmarket parties in town suggests it is all in her own head and not caused by day to day life.

The film is shocking and not for the squeemish, wounds are examined and picked at in close up and the film almost strays into cannibalism as she starts to eat her own flesh, eventually attempting to preserve some for all time. Its through these scenes that the idea of self harm disolves and an idea of addiction springs to mind. An addiction where one woman attempts to consume her own body. In one restaurant scene Esther becomes so disengaged with her surroundings she begins picking at her arm with a fork, later going to the chemist to find out about the best way of preserving her own chewed at flesh.

The film borders on the absurd in a way as the director Marina De Vans, who incidently is also the star, pushes everything to the extreme, almost hoping to overstep the audiences boundaries. These almost surreal steps seem to be there to provoke an audience reaction, yet for all this Dans Ma Peau remains a thing of beauty, just not as we know it.

EBay, I realised I had first two so googled 3rd one and saw it so bought it , then realised where it was coming from, seller sent me a email i didn't understand it was in French, I emailed back and apologised I didn't understand French they sent me another email this time they tried to explain best they could in English, i thought they was going to say something like would cost extra or not posting abroad etc, they explain they'll post in about 3 days and it'll take few days to arrive sure enough they did, so I've left full marks and positive feedback .

Nice review Dem.:cool:

I've been feeling down because of the weather so i'll wait to watch it.
It was the reference to David Cronenberg and body horror films on the cover that sold me on it.
