The Vanity Tables of Douglas Sirk

Rappaport, Mark
A video essay exploring the frequency and meaning of Vanity Tables in a wide variety of Sirk movies. Is it a device that traps and keeps women in an artificial world with a limited point of view? Or is it a gateway to the past, and the future, and a distorted but nevertheless real vision of the roles that woman are forced to play in society?
