Duke of Burgundy: Complex View of Sado-Masochistic Lesbian Bond (LGBTQ, Lesbian)

Peter Strickland’s third feature, The Duke of Burgundy, depicts a sado-masochistic lesbian relationship by analyzing the roles that both parties play, offering a fresh, ultra-erotic perspective.

Too bad that the title of the picture (referring to a rare species of butterfly) is so inaccurate and unappealing, for the tale is pyschologically and emotionally complex, and shot in asecutive visual style that recalls sof-porn flicks of the past.
