Blu-ray Boutique: Episode 31 – Pride Month: Sapphic Cinema

Hosts Tim Rosenberger and Rosalie Lewis our joined this month by writer Nora MacIntyre. For her website notoriouslynora.com, Nora has written about a wide variety of subjects, such as LGBT films or topics, toxic masculinity, sex, hagsploitation, and she also writes more general film reviews. For Pride Month, Nora’s here to discuss three films she considers part of sapphic cinema: the historical, political thriller The Scarlet Empress (1934); the film noir Nightmare Alley (1947); and the romantic drama Walk on the Wild Side (1962). Sapphic has many definitions depending on who you ask, but it can be a synonym for lesbians or lesbianism. For Nora, it can encompass lesbianism but also bi/pan women. The three talk about how the trio of films fare as movies, how they fit into sapphic cinema, and what they mean to Nora. The Criterion Collection released the boutique home video versions of The Scarlett Empress and Nightmare Alley, and Arrow Video released Walk on the Wild Side in the U.K.
