"A rambunctious embrace, body to body, woman to woman, entrance to exit—inlaws—foregrounding the construction of cinematic meaning, the elusive nature of memory and desire, the hysteric familial arena of the social. A comedy of manners and movement, BLONDE FUR takes painting to its logical conclusion: the moving frame.” (AC)
