four short films, more silly than erotic
7 July 1999 | by clovis-5See all my reviews

It would have been more truthful to entitle this collection "Four Goofy Shorts by Four Established Indie-film Directors". There is certainly a constituency out there who would go for a collection of silly shorts by directors such as Ken Russell, Melvin Van Peebles, etc.

Instead, the title of this collection of shorts and the dreamy video boxcover photograph of Mira Sorvino are designed to hook the hapless seeker of erotic entertainment, who will, in fact, find little of that sort here. Mira Sorvino fans will be disappointed, in that respect. There are a few fleeting glimpses of the great Cynda Williams in the buff, but the comedic scenario will dampen any viewer's libido.
