Why are we being asked to watch this? I don't know since its an hour you will never get back
This is the story of Carol Morley's wild and wanton years back in the 1980's. The film is a series of talking heads of the people Carol slept and partied with back on the 1980's while she was in a band inter-cut with old film footage and new film footage. Carol doesn't appear on film and the film is structured as if the interviewees are talking to Carol and the inter-cut footage is memory.
Then again I really don't care. There is only so much that I can hear about some one's sex life over and over again before I stop caring. Usually about two minutes, this is 50 odd minutes more than that. Actually to be honest the problem is not that I don't want to hear about her sex life, I would, if it was interesting, but its not, its the same basic tale repeated over and over again. There is talk about Carol's partying but mostly people seem to focus on the sex, or so it seemed to me.
I watched this hoping that I would find something to latch onto, but I couldn't. I don't know why this would interest anyone other that the director who may or may not have made this in an effort to remember how many people she actually slept with. I have no idea what sort of hubris would make someone think that anyone other than those involved with her would want to see this film.
2 out of 10 for the five minutes that the film is interesting.
