Last Tango in Paris 
Perversely Beautiful
3/4 stars

There's much to admire about this progenitor of the 'Euroshlock' genre (or exploitative European arthouse cinema, for those unversed in TV Tropes lingo). Its frank depiction of a sordid sex affair (to call it a 'love affair' would be a bit of a stretch) between middle-aged Marlon Brando (who gives quite possibly his greatest performance ever here) and young Maria Schneider creates a paradox between the allure of its attractive leads and the repugnance of their bodily fluids that is often electrifying, if a little nauseating. Bertolucci and Storaro are in their usual top form, collaborating to give the film its lovely, musky 'oil-painting' look. And the ending manages to accommodate both those who view the film as a tragic romance, and those who view it as a cautionary tale about sexual debauchery.

However, while it is easy to admire it, I can't say I will ever watch it again. There's only so much of Brando being a perv that I can handle.
