Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!
16 December 1998 | by (Manchester, England.) – See all my reviews

All I really have to say is, more please. This movie had a cool sound track, good character detail, managed to tackle complex issues while leaving enough room for the viewer to have an opinion, and unlike more dated genre work such as "Go Fish", this movie is well into the young dykedom of today's world. The philosophical moments in this movie are tinged with the bitter-sweet taste of reality, rather than myth. And I do not understand why the film was cut for broadcast on terrestrial TV in Britain. It seems we still have a very long way to go concerning the establishments. However films like this are helping to pave the way.
