Perfectly dreadful film
3 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

Here's one of those movies that pretends to have something to say, and tries to disguise the fact that it's utterly banal by centering on sexuality. The lead character is played by Sean Young, the actress's slight wackiness gives the character her only spark. Certainly the writing is poor and the plot development virtually nonexistent. Stella is a chef who lives with a young rich alcoholic, who has a tendency to speak in artsty semi poetic phrases. She has sex with strangers for the ostensible purpose of gathering information about men. One problem is that she never seems to learn anything, nor does she seem to be particularly enjoying herself, and the men she ends up with don't seem to have much to tell her in any event. Strangely, as much spouting as Stella does about "this is who I am" and "knowing what she wants", when she is asked about being "a slut" by a friend, the first words out of her mouth are "what about men?" and justifying herself by the way men act, or rather are portrayed to act "in the movies". We're not really given any clue as to what's really going on in the movie, and because of the poor writing, aren't really given a reason to care.

If you're looking for character driven film making, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.
