BDSM is so hot right now, so in honor of Valentine’s Day and other less than conventional sexual power dynamics, here’s a brief scene from Liliana Cavani’s The Night Porter, which was the Fifty Shades of Grey of mid-seventies art house cinema:
*sigh* Ain’t love jam?
If you haven’t seen it, this movie has everything: Charlotte Rampling, Dirk Bogarde, star-crossed romance, sexual perversions, post-World-War-II European anxieties, and secret Nazis. It’s not for everybody, but it’s something else for those so inclined. What a kinky turn-on, indeed.
