Story of the Eye

Well probably the one book in the history of western literature least likely to be turned into a movie has been. See this review of The Story of the Eye, based on the book by Georges Bataille. If you haven't read this book, and few have, it's both disturbing and great at the same time. Bataille was a big influence on Foucault so you know he's not exactly normal. One warning, this book, and apparently this movie, is not for the squeamish or easily offended. Now I'm waiting for the movie version of Blue of Noon.
