The Handmaiden (Extended Cut) - Went with the longer version because it was the only evening screening they had for either cut. Been searching online to find the differences but there's no info about it. Can make a couple of guesses but nothing felt out of place.
Loved it, and the length really didn't bother me. Whole thing flew by. Not as good as Lady Vengeance which is pretty much perfect. Had all the great director trademarks, weird humour, inventive editing/transitions, engaging character relationships. Yeah really enjoyed it. Up there with Raw as the bwst of the year for me. Minor quibbles include:
The torture stuff at the end was a bit out of place and could have been built up a bit more.
The section in part 2 where it went over part 1 was too long, aside from the sex scene
Also I'm not quite sure what to make of the sex scenes, they felt a bit Blue Is The Warmest Colour and yeah, I think I would have preferred it if they were a little more muted? Then again the whole film is very OTT so I'm not sure. I'm conflicted. For what it's worth, the people I saw it with who have far more authority than me to make a judgement on that didn't have any problems with it.
