A woman who never got over the fact that her father abandoned her as a child tracks him down with only one desire - to ruin his life just as he ruined hers. A tragic incestuous game of deceit and seduction begins.
Here we have the example of trying to do too much in too little time. Giving examples of films exposing sexual taboos should take longer than one hour. I think the film should have concentrated on directors with a larger body of work. Don Roos and Miguel Arteta each have one movie discussed and I wouldn't consider either one very shocking. At least John Waters and David Cronenberg got segments, but again "Blue Velvet" didn't really deserve a segment; I think the same could be said for Atom Egoyan's films. I guess my real problem was with who was omitted. When I think of perversion in the cinema, Peter Greenaway, Nicholas Roeg, Ken Russell and Russ Meyer immediately come to mind. With the exception of Meyer, maybe the others are considered too mainstream but some of those directors' movies make these so-called indie taboo films seem pretty tame (excluding Waters, Cronenberg and "Blue Velvet"). A so-so documentary. OK for the novice viewer.
