For the Entomology Minded

Tonight TCM is showing a very strange yet arresting movie, called "Woman in the Dunes" after midnight.
 

I highly recommend it for those who like off the wall flicks. A man who is a biologist studying the life of bugs gets to find out what it is like to be trapped like a bug in a place.
 

Enjoy!

 

Oops, update: Due to bad liquor affecting my cranium, I mistakenly said this was playing tonight, but it is actually on tomorrow nite, Sunday. Sorry.

That would be tomorrow night, late Sunday night/early Monday morning, on TCM Imports, to avoid any confusion.

 

 

This is a good movie, and one of the strangest to receive an Oscar nomination in the 1960's. It was up for Best Director for Hiroshi Teshigahara.

I saw Women in the Dunes at the movies when I was a kid -- I remember my friends and I being shocked (and, you'll pardon the expression, titillated) by the sight of a female breast on screen.

 

I don't remember anything about the insect connection, though speaking of insects, here's a lady I do remember:
