Okay, so I thought the film Catch Me Daddy was disturbing, but hey – what do you know? MUBI offered up a film that is even more disturbing: Trance a film about human trafficking! A Russian woman leaves St Petersburg with the aim of making money, and gets kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery and humiliation. It meanders along for over two hours and makes me feel like someone is rubbing a cheese grater against my skin. One review, with which I agree, concluded:

But at a two-hour-plus running time, only the most stout-hearted fans of cold-blooded art cinema will stick around to find out how much misery awaits the unwary and not too bright heroine

…Otherwise, I finally got to 80% read in Infinite Jest. I will be pleased to move on to some other reading material once this ends.
