I have always thought _Exit to Eden_ Anne Rice's worst book. Yes, worse than _Belinda_ or even all three _Beauty_ books. It seemed as if she was almost preaching at us about how freeing S&M can be for all of us. The characters seemed to experience a lot of tumult, but really didn't feel at all deeply. Then she marries Lisa off to Elliot. I'm not sure what S&M advocates thought of that, but it seemed too traditional an ending and basically trashed the point of every preceding page.
The movie's worse. I adore Paul Mercurio. "Strictly Ballroom" is one of my favorite movies ever, but-- he seemed to be just eye-candy here. Why, oh why, hasn't he been really acting since? Dana Delaney was beautiful, but she didn't seem at all fierce, dangerous, as I would have hoped big bad Mistress Lisa would be. While O'Donnell and Akroyd were fun to watch, that whole added on plot was terrible! Why move the focus off Lisa and Elliot's relationship? Why not take all the bondage/S&M seriously, instead of making it a joke? Rosie O. in a leather suit, hopping off the set? Lord have mercy on us all.
