Has its faults, but still is quite daring.
30 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

This film tiptoes around its "controversial" subject (sadomasochism), and Dana Delany is terribly miscast and always unconvincing as a dominatrix -for example Iman, who co-stars here, would be a much better choice for the role of Mistress Lisa. But, for a mainstream Hollywood picture, this is still pretty daring and unusual. As others have said, the many different genres and styles employed here inevitably clash, and make the film inconsistent - but at least it's never boring. Not for kids. (**1/2)
