Bence Bardos’s review published on Letterboxd:
extraordinary, genuinely horrifying work. greenaway does not take any prisoners in this one. a masterclass in direction, set design and storytelling alike. it is premised on the disorientating game of a meta-cinematic, meta-theatrical play-within-a-play. this convergence of expression creates a truly unique viewing experience - and by the time you think you're safe, it brutally pulls the rug out from under you.
also, ralph fiennes' balls are in this.
