A classic snooze
29 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a very, very well-made XXX film with an S/M angle; it's usually considered one of the all-time best in the genre. But it's also precious and pretentious beyond all description, and so cold that it's hard to get into. You can admire it, but it's awfully hard to enjoy.
