Video: MILDRED PIERCE, Directed By Todd Haynes


I know this is gay sacrilege, but just between us, I’m not a huge fan of Mildred Pierce.

Yes, I’ve watched it from beginning to end. Several times. It just doesn’t do much for me.

I feel the same way about Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte, which one of several of my friends turned into an amazing stage play, but the movie? Well, it does go on.

Anyway, I’d heard there was a remake in the works for Mildred Pierce. What I hadn’t heard was that it’s been directed by genius director (and occasional acquaintance) Todd “Superstar” Haynes. And it features Kate Winslet, whom I’ve liked ever since Heavenly Creatures, with a brief interlude around Titanic, not because she was bad, but because it was a comic book, and I like my comic books animated, thank you.

The trailer also gives me hope:
