Very Profound
22 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

A lot of people can't see beyond the SMBD of this film, but if you're able to get past that you can see the real message of the film. I was blown away after watching it. It's very beautiful and stunning, especially using pink to mark everyone who has a perverted life, public or no. The message of this film is that strange and "normal" can share a common bond. The hardcore Christian gets sucked into the SMBD world and the dominatrix... well, you have to see the movie to understand. I won't tell. Needless to say, look beyond the superficial implications of this film and root for the deeper meaning. It is one of the best films I have seen since I can relate to both Peter and The Mistress. If you can't stomach SMBD don't watch it. If you do watch it, I urge you once again: look beyond the superficial implications and find the real meaning of the film. You will be shocked with what you find.
