Trouble Every Day and Bataille... It could almost be Angela Carter, although her horrors are grim ly humorous, and Denis's vision is surprisingly cold and analytic. AC's The Bloody Chamber: short stories based on stories like Bluebeard. Grimly humorous and poetic: actually quite unlike Trouble Every Day, which is cold, analytic and despairing. And surprisingly brutal. But the film world isn't the real world. Murders go unreported and undiscovered: victims (at least the chambermaid at the end) don't scream or knee their (male) attacker.
