The Ages Of Lulu Review

Now, this is the ticket. Erotically super-charged, Bigas Luna's study of one woman's descent into sado-masochism remains a titillating triumph, particularly in this almost fully uncut format.

Understandably, the one shot the BBFC have still declined to pass is the credit-sequence close-up of a naked baby, but that's hardly to say what's left is bereft of shock value.

Shockingly brilliant
