Regina George vs. Lisbeth Salander: Trailer for Brian de Palma’s ‘Passion’

August 23, 2012 Leave a comment


Based on the trailer, this film evokes so many cinematic associations…’Black Swan’, ‘Single White Female’, ‘Disclosure’, the upcoming ’50 Shades of Grey’ to name a few but what I’d be most curious to hear are the responses to this trailer from  lesbians, straight women, and straight men.  Either way its Rachel McAdams/Regina George (“corporate take-over”) vs. Noomi Rapace/Lisbeth Salander (“I’m goth on the inside now”), and I admit I’m stumped on who the odds favor more here.  Never underestimate a Mean Girl attempting to “out-do” Demi Moore’s character from ‘Disclosure’ and never underestimate an abused hacker who’s learned how to speak English and put on a suit…especially when both have developed a new interest in BDSM and role-playing!
