Dennis Lim Reviews Van Gogh's Submission

"Artists from Abbas Kiarostami to Shirin Neshat to Ousmane Sembene have confronted the misogyny of conservative Islam in ways that are at once more damning and less willfully profane."

Still, just because it was at once outrageously incendiary and a lackluster piece of filmmaking, it's still chilling and despicable that Van Gogh was killed for Submission.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
