Let's get naked and then act all peaceful n' stuff!
29 May 2010 | by ElijahCSkuggsSee all my reviews

The Workshop is a glimpse into the nudity laden 10 day sex and zen workshop that will help you find your way in life. Well, that's the idea anyways.

The flick is a total mixed bag of thought. One second, I was digging what was going on, as I think the aspect of nudity can definitely work...but only for so long. Hell, I think I would enjoy going to this workshop, getting naked, sleeping in a tent, having sex and orgies, talking about aliens...but at the same time I've seen the people, and the characters, and I don't think I'd be able to deal with it.

At first I saw vulnerability, and an innocent openness....and then, I saw a facade. You're there for 10 days, and of course you're trying to be as positive and open as you can...but the way a lot of these people talk, and embrace this philosophy so whole-heartedly is beyond melodramatic and rather fake. One of the people there (who I identified with most) tried asking another member a question, if she had sex with so-and-so, but was met with something like this, 'I will answer your question when space allows it.' That is not the exact sentence, but it's very similar, and all I need to make my point.

The camp is without a doubt a hell of a unique experience. But it also appears to be hit or miss and untrustworthy with it's success rate. Out of half dozen or so main people on display here, I'm still uncertain if any of them truly got something out of it. Just because you act and look like some spiritual/new-wave thinker...it doesn't make you one. But they wouldn't know that.
