Storyline

Bertolt Brecht lives! Maggie Hadleigh-West walks crowded urban streets carrying a video camera and microphone, trailed by one or two women also with cameras. Whenever a man harasses her, with ogling or words, she turns the camera on him, moves in close, and questions his behavior. The questions are not for dialogue but for making him as uncomfortable as he's made her. More than 50 such encounters are included: the men react with bravado, embarrassment, or anger. None apologize. Interspersed are her voice-over stories of growing up and dealing with men, as well as interviews with several women who talk about how they handle similar harassment and what they feel about it.

An excellent example of a manipulatve pursuit of a self-serving agenda.
6 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

I viewed a showing of this film and was disgusted in the manner that this so-called documentary blatantly pursued a self serving agenda of vilifying simple flirtation. Ms. Hadleigh-West seems to feel that it is perfectly proper to prance around enticingly attired, and then aggressively harass any and all individuals who attempt a simple flirtation

Granted that insulting remarks or physical harassment is indeed worthy justification for her counter harassment. However, Ms Hadleigh-West lumps simple eye flirtation and "body-scanning" in with the bad stuff and considers them harassment....puhleez!

I wonder what this pseudo "documentary" film maker thinks of the natural forms of flirtation performed in all cultures of the real world. I think she should consider getting a real job. I rate this a minus 10.
