August 12, 2012 – The Draughtman’s Contract
UK, 1982, Color, Rated R, 103 Minutes.
Directed by Peter Greenaway. Starring Anthony Higgins, Janet Suzman.
Set in 17th-century England, this erotically charged film features an aristocratic wife (Janet Suzman) who commissions a young draughtsman (Anthony Higgins) to sketch her husband’s property. As the draughtsman becomes entangled in the devious scheming in the idyllic estate, details emerge in his drawings that may reveal a murder. A feast of intricate wordplay, extravagant costumes and opulent photography, The Draughtman’s Contract weaves a mystery around the maxim “draw what you see, not what you know.”
