Storyline

Joe is a psychiatrist who puts a hidden camera behind his couch, facing a wall sized mirror in order to document a number of women who come and go. Obsessed with a former lover, Joe intends to perform and record an "experiment in contemporary sexual aberration." In the process, Joe documents his own mental breakdown as well as a number of sexually volatile encounters with the women who come to see him. Written by alfiehitchie

painful, fascinating, a rip-snorting chunk of cinema
30 July 2002 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

This has got to be one of my guilty pleasures. This film is not always easy to watch and the sound is something awful. However, it's painfully powerful to watch. Not only is Torn's character, Bill the Psychiatrist, literally coming apart, the bulk of the women who pass through his pseudo-office come love nest are almost to a one frayed at the edges. It it passes your way on the tube or else where, give it some attention.
