why you shouldn't see blue is the warmest color: the director is a coercive, manipulative, abusive piece of shit
IN THIS INTERVIEW the young actresses in Blue is The Warmest Color, an acclaimed faux-documentary style movie made in France about two lesbians, talk about being coerced to engage in sexual activity they were not comfortable with, being coerced to literally smack each other over and over in dramatic scenes, to lick snot off of each other, work far longer than they agreed to, work grueling hours, and were “trapped” in the project by a violent and fetishizing piece of shit male director who they say they’ll never work with again.
I’m sure this is just the tip of the ice berg.
Please do not support this film.
trigger warning for coercion and the interviewer’s apologism and fuckery
