Let's zone out this sunday to some pictures of Isabelle Adjani as Stella in Roman Polanski's The Tenant, yeah?
As the third part of Polanski's apartment/claustrophobia trilogy, The Tenant is probably...look, you either know this about The Tenant already, or couldn't give a shit because you're about to go see Hot Tub Time Machine again this weekend, so let's just concentrate on Isabelle here since she does have the purdiest mouth ever. She may look more stunning in Herzog's 1979 reimagining of Nosferatu, but prettiness often doesn't equate to sexiness, and both prettiness and sexiness are nullified when the object of desire is a meek virgin running through colonies of diseased rats dressed like the grandmother in 'Allo 'Allo, as Isabella did when cast as Lucy Harker in Nosferatu : Phantom Der Nacht.
When our object of desire has the greatest women's coat in the history of cinema (competition is none, other than the similar black number Anna Karina wears in Alphaville) and can make Deidre Barlow/Log Lady spactacles as erotic an accessory as denim hot pants, however, then we are dealing with a higher echelon echanting dame.
Biggie's "Educated, so I can bust off on they glasses" remains the most pertinent rap lyric on the appeal of bespectacled women, but which is the better song which features it? The rap-nerd in me wants to say it's Uncle Luke's Bust A Nut because it's an authentic track from when Biggie was alive, but sometimes you've just gotta let go of your anal theorizing and give it up for the superior choon, even if it is a posthumous Born Again track with a sample used on Puba & Mary J.'s classic Check It Out remix.
Uncle Luke ft. Biggie Smalls - Bust A Nut
Notorious B.I.G ft. Too $hort - Big Booty Hoes
Actually, it's because Too $hort is on it and because it's a sample used on an old Puba & Mary J track that it adheres to my rules-for-posthumous-Biggie-shit to work, what with the Uptown-Puffy-Bad Boy connection and his previous work with $hort so you could imagine it as something Biggie would've made in 1998. Don'tcha just wish they'd have got Puba on it too kicking some filthy lyrics about getting chix to see how wide they could split their skinz, though?
