Camille Paglia on women & magic in Hitchcock

"Feminism has to start listening to Frank Sinatra and stop listening to Lacan, Derrida and Foucault."

I had to write to my site host and ask them to unblock the word "lesbian" before I could publish this post:

"Q: Have you seen that new lesbian movie, Blue is the Warmest Color?

"A: No I haven’t. But I adored Desert Hearts—starring one of your fine Canadian actresses. I think that all movies made by lesbians for lesbians have been really dreary with no sense of style. Lesbians are boring. It was a lot more interesting when lesbianism was evil and perverse. Now everything is so accepting and all the heat has gone out. It’s all about Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi. It's banal."
