on 10/14/2015 had this to say:

"Two films about power dynamics in relationships, especially when it comes to sexual domination. Fifty Shades of Grey was a huge surprise for me, in terms of my expectation and what it ended up being. The Duke of Burgundy was slightly like Kiarostami doing Bergman, which is more or less what I expected. The Duke of Burgundy is much more artfully told, but I found Fifty Shades of Grey to be far more of a mature, adult relationship than I expected. Because of that, I'm probably the only person to have seen both films that picks Fifty Shades over Duke of Burgundy."
