Girl on a Motorcycle

Marianne Faithful's character rides a motorcycle in a black leather jumpsuit! She loves masochist sex! She dies!

Faithful has lovely sepia tea teeth, royal blood and a kind of falling off a bridge energy-arrogance! The woman is bad-ass, even if the movie played into too many sexist fantasies. (Strange fact, her great great uncle wrote Venus in Furs, the book that birthed the word masochist, after the uncle's last name. )
