For a Movie that Wants to Depict Fringe, 'Secretary' Is Surprisingly Didactic

Secretary is a quirky feature from the early 2000s about BDSM and lonely damaged people wearing sexy stockings. A critical darling in theatrical release, the film is still thought-provoking and disconcerting.

Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus (2006)

In making Arbus' biography understandable, if "imaginary," the film also makes her work -- so thrillingly strange -- a bit too familiar.

Secretary (2002)

Secretary is about anxiety, depression, the inability to communicate.
