Mia DuBois (Calhoun) is a walking cliché--a successful therapist with an unsuccessful marriage. Her husband, Victor (St. John), is more interested in working on his laptop than on her. So she is very receptive to hearing about the wild sex life that her new client Tammy (Wilson) and Tammy's husband enjoyed, before he was murdered. Mia even accepts an invitation from Tammy to Pandora's Box, a no holds barred secret club of sex, drugs, and even more sex. She falls under the spell of a dark, handsome stranger named Hampton (White), a walking streak of sex. But is Hampton all he seems?Written by
After the on slaught of the summer blockbuster bull of films,there is one film that is very entertaining and for once a breath of fresh air that is strictly for adults from the director who brought us "TROIS". However,this one is on the same wavelength as Stanley Kubrick's EYES WIDE SHUT,but it goes even further into the abyss of erotica--and for once this is one film that shows characters of color engaging in sexual scenes. However,the sexual scenes that are displayed here are not for the faint of heart---since this is a movie that is STRICTLY ADULT--so leave the kids and teenagers at home!
Its amazing that it was very good,since you have a brillant cast of performers here including superb leads by Monica Calhoun,whom gives the performance of her acting career(which is something this actress would never do since she always plays the second banana in feature films,but wanted to take her acting to the next level in a leading role)as a psychiarist who goes into a web of sexual intrigue,money,and murder from which there is no way out. However,the movie was very good and its playing in limited release in selected cities across the country(which opened nationwide September 27th,2002)but its a movie that should not be missed by a long shot,but remember this is not for the faint of heart!
This is also a rare opportunity to catch this director's current project which will be more intriguing and even darker than his previous efforts since we need more of that are catered to adult black audiences and also to bring a new format of black cimema to the next level. Kudos to you, Mr. Rob Hardy!
