[speaks to herself... ]
Wham, bam thank you mam.
[... thinks to herself]
Is it me? Why can't they tell me what's wrong? Why can't he make love to me like the way he should? If he could only make me feel... the way HE feels when he... if he starts slowly... I'm a woman not just a tool. Tomorrow will make one year... happy anniversary to me. He's probably forgotten what day it will be...

it strikes such a basic chord, one is in awe at how simple Meyer has made it look.
Top notch Meyer with magnificent b/w photography, assured and vigorous editing and a super effective soundtrack. The presence of Lorna Maitland does nothing to distract but this is a movie about much more than DD breasts. It is far more about the very nature of man and woman. It is uncomfortable stuff with men delighting in humiliating and fighting each other and the possibility of getting the woman of their dreams. The rapes, both non consensual and vaguely consensual, turning romantic, are difficult but intrinsic to the flimsy, but oh so basic and believable storyline. The soothsayer and rather melodramatic ending may be a little over the top but this is a fine well told tale of human animals lusting and being lusted over. Sex, eating and dying, just about sums this up and it strikes such a basic chord, one is in awe at how simple Meyer has made it look.
