Female Characters Appreciation, Villains: Part 1

“Isn’t it time to acknowledge the ugly side? I’ve grown quite weary of the spunky heroines, brave rape victims, soul-searching fashionistas that stock so many books. I particularly mourn the lack of female villains — good, potent female villains. Not ill-tempered women who scheme about landing good men and better shoes (as if we had nothing more interesting to war over), not chilly WASP mothers (emotionally distant isn’t necessarily evil), not soapy vixens (merely bitchy doesn’t qualify either). I’m talking violent, wicked women. Scary women. Don’t tell me you don’t know some. The point is, women have spent so many years girl-powering ourselves — to the point of almost parodic encouragement — we’ve left no room to acknowledge our dark side. Dark sides are important. They should be nurtured like nasty black orchids.”

Park Chan Wook has finally decided on his next project: Agasshi (아가씨, literally meaning “young lady”) will be an adaptation of Sarah Waters‘ Fingersmith, a period crime novel that follows young female thieves (called, you guessed it, fingersmiths). However, the location will be switched from Victorian London to Korea under Japanese rule. 

Stoker

Bram Stoker goes up to the counter and orders “anything red.” His barista is noticeably disturbed, but decides that he is so curious about Stoker’s life and habits that he will follow him to his home, move in with him, and attempt to learn more about his undoubtedly fascinating life. Bram Stoker is delighted. The barista is seen again months later with dead eyes and puncture wounds on his neck.
