The Kiss

“The Kiss,” makes the viewer an inadvertent voyeur to a feeding vampire. It’s titillating. The vampire has consumed her victim, and her eyes touch you:  a prospective meal. Her body, saturated with blood from her lips to the ends of her hair, becomes an over-sized, engorged orifice; the victim’s back doubles as a prominent fang. I am reminded of the J. Robert Oppenheimer quote , “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
