I'm going to delve into the volatile realm of cult film and put Gradiva ((C'est Gradiva qui vous appelle) in my Netflix queue.  It was released in 2006 and it was directed by Alain Robbe Grillet.  James Wilby is the only recognizeable face in the credits.

I've read the plot synopsis, read all the reviews, and watched a few vids online.  I'm still 'all systems go' to watch this film, despite my queasiness over the subject matter...and other things.  Curiousity is getting the better of me.  That and the need to hear Wilby speak French..  Hopefully one viewing will be enough for me.  It's kinda like debating whether or not to read my husband's copy of HP Lovecraft's Necronomicon :  'I kinda want to read it but I'm kinda scared to read it....It looks interesting but I think reading it may open a portal to Hell or turn me into a tentacle Cthulu Dunwich Horror thing...'  Kinda like that, except I'm afraid of turning into an unapologetic perv. 
Gah!  I'm an adult!  I can do this!
