so i was watching "9 1/2 Weeks" the other night when i was plagued by heat induced insomnia and i realized 2 things: mickey rourke looks like an entirely different person today than he did back then, which saddens me greatly, and kim basinger is seriously gorgeous. there will be another post on "9 1/2 Weeks" later, but for now... doesn't she look an awful lot like brigitte bardot in some of these pics?

i have been meaning post on "the lover" by marguerite duras for awhile now. i don't have much time now, so i will post more on this later, but for now... here are some stills from the film directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud.
"I am worn out with desire for Helene Lagonelle.
I am worn out with desire.
I want to take Helene Lagonelle with me to where every evening, my eyes shut, I have imparted to me the pleasure that makes you cry out. I'd like to give Helene Lagonelle to the man who does that to me, so he may do it in turn to her. I want it to happen in my presence, I want her to do it as I wish, I want her to give herself where I give myself. It's via Helene Lagonelle's body, through it, that the ultimate pleasure would pass from him to me.
A pleasure unto death."

i actually watched this a few months ago, but never got around to posting these pics. i just love the rachel ward's entire wardrobe in this film- loose, sheer, and sexy... exactly what i love about summer.
