Floating around this week at Corra Films is ‘L’apollonide: Souvenirs de la Maison Close,’ directed by Bertrand Bonello, screening now on a Netflix Instant screen near you. This is what Bonello calls a “brain film,” and what we call “wisdom filmmaking” – an awkwardly intimate look at life in a Parisian brothel in 1900, focusing on the girls who make it all happen. Dirty, violent, glamorous, with an incredibly slow but rewarding payoff – it’s a completely contemporary story set in a different life. How have we never heard of Bonello before? Next up, I’m watching his 2001 Cannes winner Le Pornographe.
