      L iliana Cavani’s The Night Porter is a psychosexual nightmare that entwines not only the sadomasochistic relationship between ex-SS officer Max (Dirk Bogarde) and concentration camp survivor Lucia (Charlotte Rampling), but also the equally impossible reconciliation of a present beholden to historical catastrophes past. Cavani understands these contradictions through a narrative template 4/5. For me, this places Shaw’s photobok “Life as a Night Porter” within the context of Solomon-Godeau’s “insiders”, a person with a deep personal involvement of the subject matter. His project shares the insider’s perspective similar to the work of Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, Zoe Strauss, Sarah Stolfa and Richard Billingham.

    McBrien fails to find a merry way of describing the Porters' hectic but repetitious social life, and one can take only so many accounts of glittering openings and after-theater parties; but he is good at conveying Porter's underlying gloom -- his fear of boredom and his cultivation of aristocratic languor as a cover for frustrated ambition. The Criterion Channel – Film #7 "You were always insane, and you still are." Exploitation non grata. Trauma takes a taboo twist in Liliana Cavani's The Night Porter, a polarizing examination of sadomasochism and psychological chaos following the horrors of World War II as a sordid affair reignites in s Vienna—one that began in the harrowing corridors of a death camp a decade prior/5(K).

    One night, Stratton-Porter also helped rescue downtown Geneva. It was and Charles was away on business. Hearing screams, Stratton-Porter pulled a skirt over her nightgown and, long hair.   The Night Porter is a provocative and problematic film. Made in by Italian director Liliana Cavani, it can be seen as an exercise in perversion and exploitation of the Holocaust for the sake of sensationalism. On the other hand, a closer reading of this English-language psychological thriller suggests a dark vision of compelling characters doomed by their World War II past.
