Too true to be entertaining
10 June 2000 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

Looking for escape? Don't look here. Most likely you've lived this film already. The first rate actors (except the lead), a decent script, engaging, nicely integrated sex scenes and complex characters do not resonate. The too-little-like-real-life beginning burrows down to a raw, indefinable center and (just when it starts to get interesting)produces a dry, too-much-like-real-life ending. The muddled motivation of the supporting characters is clearer when measured against the lead. Why does he seek outside the marital relationship what he already has? As my mum used to say: "Why buy the doggy collar when you have the ball and chain for free...dear?". To fully, frontally, enjoy this film, watch it with the sound off or be prepared to jump the fantasy vs. reality fence often...perhaps too often. Overall: PLOT 1)it has a plot; ACTING 2) by real actors; SEX 3)kinky and plentiful right up to the unfulfilling end; LENGTH 4) too long at the start, too soft in the middle, too short in the end.
