On paper, Notes on a Scandal (2006) has our names written all over it. A sapphic British psychosexual thriller starring Judy Dench and Cate Blanchett? Yes please! However in practice, the movie doesn’t quite live up to its promise. Despite its rich subject matter, stellar performances, and competent production, the film relies heavily on tired voiceover, leaves important themes virtually unexplored, and muddies many scenes with an oppressive Philip Glass score (sorry, Philip). It all adds up to a decent viewing experience that ultimately leaves us wanting. Join us for some special friend arm strokin’, an odd shoutout to Bob Geldof, and more cat talk than you’d think on this velvet tippin’, finger smithin’, oyster slurpin’ bonanza of an episode, this week on Ex Rated Movies!
