The latest add to the CHATTER Wish List: Peter Greenaway's The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, the closest thing to an acid trip without gnawing on blotter paper. No tinny aftertaste, and Helen Mirren is sensual.

We remember seeing it during a trip to D.C. and wishing, in vain, for the film to hit Springfield. Time to track down a DVD and add it to the library.

I saw that movie at a theatre in Columbia while in college. Haven't thought much about it or heard anything about it since until reading this post.

It is a classic. Wonder what I would think about it now some 18 years later.
