Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #80: Irma Vep (1996)
80. Irma Vep [DVD] (1996)
If a cool title is enough this is a film for you!
I’m no fan of Meta films except when they make fun of the French arthouse movie arena – and face it: that is a sausage fest. So when Maggie Cheung steps into that world of men and just owns it, breaking hearts and baguettes with every move she makes, it’s almost literary a kick in the balls.
Oh, and did I mention she wears latex?
