Blue Is The Warmest Color: A Sentimental Wound


I’m excited to have an essay up today at The Believer Logger on Kechiche’s provocative new film, Blue Is The Warmest Color. If you ever wanted to know what I think about sex as sentimental wound, here’s your chance!  Also discussed: James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room, Nan Goldin on why Diane Arbus’s work is “all about herself,” Jeff Wall, transgression, dirty realism, Joanna Hiffernan’s netherparts, Mary Gaitskill’s protagonists’ unsatiated longings, John Cassavetes & Gena Rowlands, Barthes’ antipatriarchial “prick,” Sarah Anne Johnson’s new show Wonderlust, and the “mysterious, cunning and dreadful intensity of the very young.” Thanks so much to to the Believer’s Hayden Bennett for publishing this! Check out the full essay here.
