Episode 77 Criminal Lovers
Continuing his exploration of erotic thrillers, Matt finally chose one that blatantly objectifies its male leads with François Ozon’s Criminal Lovers (1999). This Hansel and Gretel meets Bonnie and Clyde tale deftly melds those two stories while also managing to usher in themes of sexual discovery and personal dominance. There’s even a little Story of the Eye thrown in for all you teenage lust killers out there! Ryan shoots a bunny, Matt eats some pears, and tumescence becomes a luxury this week on Ex Rated Movies!
