Canon Psychotic Twins in “Open House”

What is really interesting about this film, apart from the fact it has canon incest, is that it was written and directed by Anna Paquin’s brother Andrew Paquin. Anna and her husband Stephen Moyer only have small cameo roles but obviously they did the film to help out her brother, which is nice. I liked how the movie was set up so that the viewer isn’t suppose to know that the brother and sister (David and Lila) are in fact siblings. There is just subtle hints throughout the movie, and then an obvious allude to it when Lila is talking about David’s children’s book he wrote and how the brother and sister are not being allowed to fall in love with each other, and that they are twins. So the two sibling characters in the movie are not only brother and sister, but twins.  I liked how the movie did sort of a role reversal and had the sister calling the shots and being the dominant one, but at the same time the brother was so weak and just seemed so unstable it made it less fun and interesting. It is another example of this sort of toxic codependent relationship between psychotic incestuous siblings that a lot of films that are canon have, but still worth a watch.

Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne Played Incestuous Mother and Son in “Savage Grace”… Eight Years Before their Oscar Glory.

image

If you found yourself watching the Oscars this year and thought to yourself, “Hmm…I would love to see Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne in a movie where they played mother and son, but they also have to make out, and one of them has to murder the other one,” then you’re in luck because it already exists!

Eddie and Julianne triumphantly emerged from the 87th annual Academy Awards on Sunday evening having won two of the night’s biggest prizes, but Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore have far more in common than their respective wins for Best Actor and Actress.

The pair once played a mother and son embroiled in an incestuous and consequently murderous relationship in Tom Kalin’s steamy 2007 film Savage Grace.

The film was based on the alleged relationship shared between Bakelite heir Antony Baekland and his mother, socialite Barbara Daly Baekland. Not only did Anthony suffer from schizophrenia, but he was also homosexual, which was an even bigger deal in the 1960s than it is today. To cover up her son’s sexual orientation, Baekeland spread rumors that they were having an affair. Why? Well, I guess she thought having an Oedipus Complex was better than being gay. The film also features a provocative threesome featuring Eddie, Julianne and co-star Hugh Dancy.

Curfew/Before I Disappear Films

At the lowest point of his life, Richie gets a call from his estranged sister, asking him to look after his eleven-year old niece, Sophia, for a few hours.

Watched a really good short film Curfew (in fact it won the Oscar) and its matching feature length film adaptation Before I Disappear thanks to the great recommendation from shipcestuous. Read her commentary on the film set on her wordpress blog here.

Tom Hiddleston and his sister Emma in “Unrelated”

image

Before there was “Thorki” (a huge fan-base that ships Thor and his adopted brother Loki), Tom Hiddleston did a film called“Unrelated.” In it his real life sister Emma played his sister.

image

In the film, Tom plays a snotty jerk named Oakley who’s kind of the ringleader of the kids who are vacationing with their parents in this villa near Siena. He’s a secondary character with the protagonist being Anna, a middle-aged woman who arrives in Italy alone, and is feeling very out at sea for reasons that are revealed as the story unfolds.

Lemon Incest: Charlotte For Ever (1986)

image

Here is an example of when real life flows into art. The French film Charlotte For Ever was written and directed by Serge Gainsbourg (French composer, writer, actor…) who also stars in the film playing the father of his real life daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg. You may recognize her from another incest film The Cement Garden. In Charlotte For Ever things get very weird. Really weird, even for the eighties..

image

Surprisingly, this wasn’t the first thing Serge and his daughter collaborated on. They did a song and video together calledLemon Incest in 1984, when Charlotte was just thirteen. This song appeared on Charlotte’s debut album titled Charlotte for Everreleased in 1986. All songs except #8 (music by Soviet composer Matvei Blanter) were written by her father Serge Gainsbourg. In parts of the world, the album was released under the controversial title Lemon Incest. Mercury Records re-released the album in France in 2007 under the Lemon Incest title. View the track listings here and purchase the song and/or album from iTunes. If that’s not enough check out the video that takes place on a bed.

A German author of fiction must deal with the sudden knowledge that he has an 8-year-old daughter from a one-night affair in Stockholm. Amazing foreign film. Til Schweiger, the star of the film, also wrote and directed it and it is his real life daughter that is in the film.
