User Review

Finally — gratification for the libido and the mind!

Rating: 9/10


I saw this movie at a film festival in L.A. in a packed theater and I
can definitely say that it captured everyone's attention. What really
struck me was that once the movie had ended and everyone had exited the
theater, it seemed like it took people a few minutes to face each other
out in the light realizing that they had just spent the last hour and a
half in a dark room with a lot of strangers watching a lot of sex on
the big screen and then . . . this frenzy just broke out and we were
all talking about how hot the movie was and discussing (and a lot of
people downright arguing) whether or not this has crossed the line with
regard to what should be allowed on a movie screen. It was pretty fun
to watch people get so charged up. It's not like this is the first time
a film has pushed boundaries sexually (I'm thinking "9 Songs") but I'd
say this one takes it to a new level. Instead of sex inter-cut with
concert footage, though, this movie balances sex with cerebral dialog
so it actually appeals to both the libido and the mind (that's not a
combination I see very often). Great date movie for sure! Especially if
you're dating somebody with a brain (although frankly, even if you're
not, I think they'll be . . . how should I put it . . . "inspired" by
this one). All in all, this is a passionate movie about life and the
state of the world in which we live. Pretty timely, actually. It's
worth seeing with a date and then going to dinner afterward for some
heated discussion – guaranteed! Or . . . just skipping dinner
altogether. Check it out if you can.
