Another brilliant court drama!
10 February 2017 | by peiyigodSee all my reviews

If 12 Angry Men, Eyes Wide Shut, are your type of movie, then you must watch this one. Rated No.7 as 2016 must watch.

No matter where we are in existence sex remains as a hot topic issue. "The Very Private Work of Sister K" is an amazingly well balanced movie that uses a courtroom-drama structure to set the course for a debate about sex. Between those who believe in its beauty and those who deem themselves the keepers of its morality. While it would be easy to see this movie taking on the stance from a woman's perspective, Johan approaches the concept of sex more from a spirituality sense where a person of any gender or of any sexuality can relate to. The effectiveness of the film is impart due to the performance of Liza Curtiss who plays Sister K — a character who saw the power and value of sex and the unity in two people when they become joined together in passion. More importantly, the strength of her character shines as she continues to hold strong in her convictions when those who believe they hold the power to declare what is right and wrong try to tear her down. Her ability to deflect their attacks with wit and understanding of something they fear makes her performance, her character, and the movie, something that needs to be seen.
