while i do appreciate the idea behind this movie( that is mainly - a young woman who uses sex in order to be able to disguise her feelings), the negatives of this movie far FAR outweigh its positives.
its somewhat of a popular phenomenon in these post-modern times, for producers to use sex as an art form. i can respect that, but instead of fitting sex into the "whole", this pretentious drivel is obsessed with showing needless flesh(to the point it actually becomes boring, to tell you the truth) instead of trying to tell a story, this is just a bunch of sex scenes with some half a**d-redundant female narrative slapped here and there so he could call this junk "art", which leads me to think its because he wanted to be either extremely "controvertial", or "uber liberal"(which is why i suspect the movie is popular amongst the female crowd mostly, and not for its artistic merits).
while the above mentioned reason is mainly why the film falls flat on its face, add to that the god-Awful acting(David looks as if he has been pulled of some late night skin flick where he butchers the art of acting on a regular basis)along with a ridiculously primitive pacing(yea, non linear plots can work, as David lynch hauntingly proved over and over again, but on "lie with me", its just laughable). and this movie is a complete and utter failure, unless maybe you couldn't find anything else on late night TV to jerk off to.
