grotesque film

Bette Davis touches up her eyeliner on the set of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). She created her own makeup for the part, explaining, “What I had in mind no professional makeup man would have dared to put on me… I felt Jane never washed her face, just added another layer of makeup each day.”


Grotesque (2009) | Kôji Shiraishi

“An unnamed doctor has always had everything he’s ever wanted, but that has only made him develop more extreme and depraved needs. He kidnaps a young couple in the prime of their life together and forces them into a game of torment that slowly extinguishes their hopes for survival.“

who are your least favorite directors?

um i don’t spend a lot of time watching films i’m probably not gonna like so i don’t have a lot of answers for this

i hate everything baz luhrmann has ever done and i find all of terry gilliam’s films similarly grotesque and unwatchable 

this isn’t entirely fair cuz i don’t really hate his films that much but david fincher kind of annoys me? his films are basically just edgified kitsch, like death metal hello kitty or something, which i guess would be fine if i didn’t get the sense that he thinks he’s really cool. i mostly just find his style kind of corny
