Shane Shane presents The Eyes of Laura Mars, the 1978 fashion murder thriller starring Faye Dunaway and featuring Barbra Streisand‘s hit torch song Prisoner.

Shane Shane

From Wikipedia: “Laura Mars (Faye Dunaway) is a glamorous fashion photographer who specializes in stylized violence. Amid controversy over whether her photographs glorify violence and are demeaning to women, Laura begins seeing, in first person through the eyes of the killer, real-time visions of the murders of her friends and colleagues.”

We’ll have a brief reading about the history and legacy of the movie, alcoholic refreshments, and an informal kiki following the movie about the Sadomasochistic implications of fashion and gay men’s unexamined fascination with murderous or violent women. Or we’ll just get drunk and imitate Faye Dunaway.
