Storyline

Blackeyes is an attempt to explore "what does go on between men and women in their heads, to show the possibilities of the ways that they see each other." Complex and multi-layered, the interweaving narrative threads include novelist Maurice James Kingsley who appropriates accounts by his niece Jessica about her life as a professional model. Kingsley's embellishments become a trashy bestseller, "Sugar Bush," tracing the rise and decline of fictional fashion model Blackeyes, victimized by men. Angry and betrayed, Jessica begins to rewrite Kingsley's novel to set Blackeyes free from the abuse of men. Written by Bhob Stewart <bhob@genie.com>

"high finance and high fashion are not such unlikely bedfellows."
1 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A long and drawn out study about how wealthy men use and coerce women.

There was a night-club owner in Prague who used to say that the reason why there was so many sex shows was because that few people understood Czech "so we better give them something they do understand."

In a lot of Dennis Potters work sex is -- indeed -- they only thing they understand.

This is a very long and drawn out piece with a good number of points to be made -- if you want money you have to either to work for it or put up with those that have it.

Gina Bellman (Blackeyes) doesn't give herself up easily -- but she does give herself up with a series of rationalisations about how she is not prostituting herself. Even though she clearly is.

Sadly this is very very long and besides the point above I gained little by watching it. Dennis Potter has made some original pieces of work, but this is one of the less interesting ones.
