Goofs

Miss Wilderspin says to Peter, "I see you attended Christ College. Oxford, or Cambridge?" There is no 'Christ College' at Oxford or Cambridge, though there is a Christ's College at Cambridge and Christ Church at Oxford. From other remarks made by Miss Wilderspin we are led to understand she is familiar with Oxford and Cambridge and very possibly went to one of the universities herself. So it is unlikely to be a mistake made by the character. See more »

Yes! Oh yes, oh yes!
21 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very, very seldom does a film come along and make me want to watch it over and over. This is one such case. Sure it has some corny story elements. For example, the ending was a little corny... a little too happy and perfect. And yes, the government would never send somebody to infiltrate subversive groups like this. But the entire film is laced with tongue in cheek satire so let's just sit back and enjoy the story can't we? From a very visual person such as myself, the costumes, makeup and set design are outstanding! True, most of the scenes are probably a little over the top compared to the real BDSM scene, but once again, this is film is not meant to be taken literally. Even the music is wonderfully chosen to reflect each scene. These technical and creative merits alone deserve an A+. Yes, Guinevere Turner is exceptionally beautiful and sexy in this film, but Sue Johnston deserves a WOW for flat out courage for shaving her head and still looking this gorgeous. This film has deservedly won a place on my list of top 10 films of all time. From a visual standpoint it's easily in the top 5, right next to The Cell, Moulin Rouge, and Bram Stoker's Dracula.
