Weird, Wonderful, Sexy Elektra
This movie, several steps up from "Women In Trouble" in terms of
consistency, further evolves the weird, wonderful and sexy world of the
title character. Carla Gugino is so winning as this confused but
sometimes wise former lady of porn that it makes you wonder what movies
would be like if she got more leading parts. Returning from the first
one are the awesome duo of Adrienne Palicki and Emmanuelle Chriqui, who
are maybe the most moving part of the story. Joseph Gordon Levitt is
hilarious in it too and Malin Akerman, who I wasn't all that keen on
from "Watchmen", actually proves she's a very good actress.
Sex-positive and lesbian-positive without being preachy or sappy, this
is a smart, weird comedy with a ton of personality and GREAT DIALOGUE.
