Erotic Tales 1

A 1994 collection of short narrative films by Mani Kaul (The Cloud Door), Ken Russell (The Insatiable Mrs. Kirsch), and Susan Seidelman (The Dutch Master), each a little under a half-hour long. The two I've seen in this batch are both recommended, especially Kaul's enchanting, beautiful, and provocative fairy tale. Russell's characteristically over-the-top sketch, which concerns a vacationing tourist's crazed erotic imaginings about a woman staying at the same hotel—a good example of Russell enjoying a healthy laugh at the expense of his own puritanical hysteria. The combined length is 79 min.
