Trace The History Of Sex On Screen With Fandor Infographic
The folks over at streaming service Fandor have whipped up an infographic illustrating some of the more notable and controversial entries in the canon, so check it out below. And, if you hadn’t had enough, Fandor’s spotlighting a special collection of sexploitation movies that should tide you over until ‘50 Shades’ drops.
Nic Pizzolatto is the man behind the script and the myth of True Detective. His first novel is called Galveston and it’s about a hitman who’s diagnosed with cancer and who everyone wants him dead. Something like Ripley’s Game. I bought it just the other days and like I’ ve always said, True Detective’s atmosphere reminded me A LOT of William Faulkner. I was happily surprised when I opened the book and I saw a quote by Faulkner’s “As I lay dying”, a favourite book of mine, in the very first page.
How often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.
Now I read that Galveston is set up to be a movie, starring Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead, Rust and Bone) and directed by Janus Metz, an upcoming Danish director. The screenplay is of course brought to us by Nic Pizzolatto himself! I really look forward seeing this.
Roy Cady is by his own admission ‘a bad man’. With a snow flurry of cancer in his lungs and no one to live for, he’s a walking time-bomb of violence. Following a fling with his boss’s lover, he’s sent on a routine assignment he knows is a death trap. Yet after a smoking spasm of violence, Roy’s would-be killers are mostly dead and he is mostly alive.
Before Roy makes his getaway, he finds a beaten-up woman in the apartment, and sees something in her frightened, defiant eyes that causes a crucial decision. He takes her with him on the run from New Orleans to Galveston, Texas, permanently entwining their fate along a highway of seedy bars and fleabag hotels, a world of treacherous drifters, pick-up trucks, and ashed-out hopes, with death just a car-length behind.
