This movie scores, 22 October 2008
Author: Karl Self from Yurp

"The Score" is an amazing movie. I was expecting a pretty good saucy movie, but it easily breaks out of that envelope. It's the first Radley Metzger film I saw, but just from this single one I'd rate him as one of the great movie makers, and if the rest of his work is au pair, I'd say he is a genius. The dialogues are brilliant, and the same goes for the actors. They were all unknown to me but quality-wise they're A-list all the way, and can really show off their prowess on a very difficult subject matter. The women are very foxy too (I can't really judge the men in that department).

I'm saying all this even though I didn't really like the subject of the movie. I'm not gay or bi, and I don't find the whole swinging philosophy all that attractive, and the movie is really all about swinging and gay sex. But it's a great movie not despite but because of that, because it took me somewhere else. I would have expected a pornographer like Metzger to have thrown in more explicit scenes, which would certainly have pleased the audience, but he wanted to entertain us by telling a far-out story, in the land of leisure, bordering on insanity in the West and decadence in the East ...

This movie really surprised me and made me sit up open-mouthed. That's why I'm awarding it a solid ten points.

On a sad sidenote, Calvin Culver / Casey Donovan, who played the husband of the younger couple, died young, in 1987 from AIDS.
