The Edge of Love Review


Terrible
In my craft or sullen art Exercised in the still night When only the moon rages And the lovers lie abed

So begins Dylan Thomas' "In my Craft or Sullen Art," a poem about the elusiveness of the inner muse, which resists being easily understood.

Cousin Bette Review


OK
Passable ripoff of Dangerous Liaisons. Tries to be funny (as black comedy) but largely fails, mainly because Jessica Lange is about as comedic as leukemia.
