Bataille was a serious philosopher as well as a sensation-seeking writer, but you'd never guess his provocative ideas from this updated version.

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Less an adaptation of Bataille's first novel, The Story of the Eye, than an exploration of its thematic underpinnings, the intersection of eroticism, power and baroque perversity.

Scabrous video art teetering between falutin' gallery and lowdown carnal imagery.

It is a strange, beautiful, disturbing and at times literally painful work.
