Our story follows a man who struggles with an addiction to sex and the impact it has on every aspect of his life. While "The Slut Always Rides Shotgun" may masquerade as a simple story about sleeping around, in reality it is a very deep tale about the difficulties of finding one's self and being open about who we really are. The underlying message portrayed within this film is discovering the things about ourselves that we cannot change and accepting them, no matter how negatively they may be viewed by others. Written by
I have seen several local films from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This work, however, is one of the most affecting that I have seen in a very long time. The work put into this piece by each of the actors is both beautiful and profound. That being being said, actress Joslyn Oberdorf is the most resounding artist of the bunch. Her role, though not prevalent throughout the entire film, imprinted on my memory and left me feeling both wholly impressed and greatly blown away. This actress is one to look out for. This film is impressive, and I recommend it for all. Watch it, you won't regret it. The notions of identity crisis and the thematic idea of self vs. society feels both profound and reminiscent of Steve McQueen's "Shame", which features Michael Fassbender giving some of his best work, mush as the actors in this piece give their best performances that I have seen from local actors. One of my favorite components of the film was that of the reversal of gender roles, where the male character is that of the "slut" and the female characters become subjects of his activity. My only hope is that everyone will be able to see this film at some point in their life. To sum it up, this artistic masterpiece gets two tits up, just like those of the brilliant actress, Joslyn Oberdorf.
