Irma Vep poster starring Maggie Cheung in latexI’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?
