Every bit as fantastic as the title is creative & unique. Life-changing, if you will let it., 26 October 2014

Awesome movie! On the surface it stands up as an engaging film about good and bad. It has a deeper meaning for cerebral viewers that I will not spoil. The male lead is cast well as a strong, and altruistic man with a world view I will try to duplicate for the rest of my life. The female lead Elizabeth Rice is troubled & sabotages the relationship & her life in a s/m type manner. Her topless sex scene reveals a good long look at heavenly anatomical perfection. The movie on the surface offers two approaches to life & informs younger viewers how to manage life's obstacles. Again, this is symbolic of a deeper meaning which is not necessary to thoroughly enjoy the film. It is eclectic which I almost always appreciate, & I urge people to watch this movie for Ms. Rice's dramatic performance of her career & the relentless optimism of the male lead. Buttwhistle is every bit as good as the title is unique & creative. I rate it 7/10 stars and give it the rare rating of a film I will always remember & one that impacts my life from this day forward. Enjoy. I sure did!
