Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Bizarre Love Triangles on Film
David Moats , February 10th, 2009 09:21

Don't call it a comeback. Dave Moats explains how Woody Allen's much hyped 'return to form' succeeds despite the filmmaker's considerable legacy hanging over the proceedings. Plus The Quietus collects 10 more bizarre love triangles captured on screen.


Blue Velvet

A very Oedipal and highly unnerving love triangle between Kyle McLaug hlin's clean-cut hero, the vulnerable Isabella Rossellini and (best villain ever) Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth. Booth's behaviour swings wildly from the infantile ("baby wants to fuck!") to the violent to to the strange (smearing on lipstick and kissing kyle) - quite threatening for an asthmatic.
