Duke of Burgundy

A love letter to the supersoftcore Seventies fever dreams of European directors like Franco and Tinto Brass, with a splash or two of Buñuel daubed behind the ears
-Stephanie Zacharek, The Village Voice
'Fifty Shades of Grey' has officially been put on notice by 'The Duke of Burgundy'
-Screen Crush, Britt Hayes
The grainy voluptuousness of the images and the sighing languor and exquisite décor in which these characters dwell conjure an atmosphere of pseudo-aristocratic post-’60s grind-house Euro-sex
-A.O. Scott, The NY Times
