A W****House of different type so as the Movie, 27 February 2012
Author: Saad Khan from Pakistan

SLEEPING BEAUTY – CATCH IT ( B- ) Sleeping Beauty is an erotic Australian movie about a w****House of a different kind. A young girl gets involves herself into W****house, where she doesn't have to prostitute herself but let herself to sleep for hours while other abuse her body in most disguising way. The subject matter of the movie is shocking and it shows us a side of people under their suits. How far humans can go for to fulfill their twisted fetishes? Human may have started wearing clothes and behaved civilized but under closed doors they're worst than animals. For me watching Emily Browning in such an erotic role was surprising. Watching her for the first time in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events with Jim Carrey to this is defiantly a surprise. Emily Browning has done a tremendous job, not only she is stunningly beautiful but she allows herself to go that raunchier in it. Michael Dorman was okay. On the whole the movie is good but it doesn't show us the purpose of making it. Was it just a shock value or director could not go more into the reason behind these psychotic fetishes?
