Getting to the bottom of the wife's sexual problems.
O, man. Okay, first off I'm gonna just admit to you all here that I have a similar problem to one addressed in the film, a wife who by nature (or genetics or abuse, who knows) isn't very interested in sex. So, I got this movie for some insight cuz I can't afford a shrink. After watching this movie over and over, I'm no better off than when I started. My ultimate conclusion is that the film IS entertaining; Terence Stamp is one of the most interesting characters I've seen in a film. But the main thing that threw me off was there was something about half way through the film where it makes fun of itself...there is a montage of short scenes set to music where they show the patient going through the doctors exercises, and they set it up comical. If this film was made to make us aware of the tantric (hence the title BLISS), this part shoots the film in the foot. Also, Sheryl Lee over acts sometimes and I know she's playing a psycho but it served to throw my mind off again into thinking we're getting off track here. There was also something about the film that made it hard to follow. One of my fellow reviewers here said it was hard to watch and that is true. Like I said, I watched it repeatedly and I would be at work or something thinking about the film and there would be these big blank spots. I'd come home and go over these spots again and I'd still be like "uh....???".
