Not a biography, this movie is a fictional account of photographer Diane Arbus, who was known for her strange, disturbing images. When we meet her, Ms. Arbus is having some issues in her life, and the arrival of a stranger moving in upstairs spurs her to make changes.
Several things make this film a treat. The music is heavenly (I just ordered the soundtrack from Amazon. I'm a sucker for unusual music). The set design is stunning and bizarre. I'm also a sucker for big, old building with lots of nooks and crannies. (I did not just order one of those.) Most delightful, however, is the sweet, sensual relationship between Nicole Kidman (Arbus) and Robert Downy Jr., her new neighbor, who has issues of his own. Downy Jr. has the most beautiful, expressive eyes, and we get to see them a lot in this movie. Pay attention to his voice, too, and see if you don't feel your panties melting off.
I'm not going to tell you anymore, lest I ruin it for you. Rent the film from Netflix, but first, enjoy this exceptional You Tube video, put together by SweetenThekitty96. Scenes from Fur start at about 2:40.
