17. The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover (1989)
Sporting one among the best and most descriptive titles to ever find themselves attached to a feature , ‘The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover’ signifies a pattern of infidelity and colorful characters. Of course, once I use the word ‘colorful’, I also mean to explain the visual appeal of this fine work of art. Singular colors give walls of specific rooms within the restaurant during which this film takes place certain human traits, making for an unnerving, claustrophobic experience, only heightened by the showcase of vi0-lence here. The nudity are some things of grace therein sense, since it’s plentiful, and though not always erotic, its presence guides the story a few woman who finds comfort during a male guest who frequently resides in her husband’s restaurant. Throwing filmic niceties out of the window, this picture is uncaring and unconcerned about anything to try to to with morality, which is frankly what makes it so great.
