Controversial film
9 November 1999 | by rokahnSee all my reviews

See Denial (called "Something about Sex" in the UK) with your girlfriend or boyfriend. It's a controversial film about the tradeoffs of open vs. monogamous vs. deceitful relationships. It's funny, intellectually stimulating, erotic at times, and provocative. Be prepared for a long talk afterwards to discuss what you want from a relationship.
