Numéro Cinq at the Movies: Alice Winocour's “Kitchen” --- R. W. Gray | Numéro Cinq
In Alice Winocour’s short film “Kitchen,” a woman struggles over the span of one day to bring to the table what “le mari” desires for dinner. She idly asks him during their morning ablutions what he would like for dinner and he says, “whatever you want . . . not meat in any case.” In an attempt to please him, “la femme” brings home to this rather drab apartment and this rather drab life two shiny oil-black lobsters with pink underbellies. They are terrifying.
