Those Sophisticated Europeans

At the Cannes Film Festival, Pedro Almodovar's new film was so disturbing that even sophisticates were running away in horror.  The plot summary here is really, really disturbing.  I cannot imagine how horrifying the film must be to watch.

The difference between "sophisticated" and "decadent" is a lot fuzzier than many intellectuals like to imagine.

  1. Well, the difference between a yankee redneck and a "sophisticated" yankee redneck is even more slim.
