A Dress to Die For
30 June 2019 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

Although at first it seems superficially more grounded in the mundane world of ordinary working stiffs than Peter Strickland's two previous films, 'Berberian Sound Studio' (2012) and 'The Duke of Burgundy' (2014), 'In Fabric' is less organised than either of those two and runs out of plot well before its nearly two hours are up.

It's vibrant saturated colours, however, (including the lacquered lips and fingernails of Strickland regular Fatma Mohamed, who provides the vampire - complete with a presumably authentic Transylvanian accent and Max Schreck's bald head - I missed from 'The Duke of Burgundy') along with frequent dark humour, makes me keen to see what Strickland comes up with next. I just hope it doesn't take another four years.
