Storyline

Sex is why we're all here. Power. Love. Sex. We're all looking for something. Ten characters each of whose lust sends them on a journey of discovery - sometimes decadent - spearhead the narrative threads in this unconventional American melodrama. The smart characterizations are counterbalanced by intense performances. From the virginal young man to the bored housewife a temptress and a womanizer with a dark secret In Search of Sex dramatizes situations where good people looking for short term solutions find themselves in bad circumstances with long term consequences.

In Search of a better movie
14 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Filled with Stilted acting, the actors seem to be lacking direction and just sleepwalk through the film. The doctor in particular seems to have only two modes: happy and grimacing. More nuance performances would have helped. The script goes in too many directions at once. A few promising threads just end for no reason. Too melodramatic. A better chef could have cooked up a more character driven yarn. The non traditional music rather than complimenting the film acts as an intrusion as it is calling attention to itself. A few of the characters were quoting lines which seem to be based on Buddhism but these lines add nothing to the story. Looks to be shot on film, but the lighting is only provided by a few existing lights or windows in each room and it is uneven. One scene in particular one can not see the actor's face but the items on the coffee table are fully illuminated. Based on the credit roll this film was shot during four different times of the year. But this adds nothing to the film. The films comes across as both glorifying sex yet at the same time warning of its consequences. Its tone comes across as too preachy. Several scenes show Christian religious symbols in the background. It would have been better if this was handled with a better level of subtly. Be sure to look for a cameo appearance of the director Zeke Zelker in the final scene of the film.
