Disappointed
8 June 2017 | by seraphael-60235See all my reviews

I watched this movie believing that it might have a complex story yet was grossly disappointed. If you remove all of the sex scenes where the women are treated as pure objects on display, you will lost about half of the movie. This may be an autobiography which gave me enthusiasm in the beginning but the story-line falls flat. The only lingering effect is the typical misogyny of a director using this opportunity to exploit women instead of telling a quality story. If your actresses have to get naked to tell a story, you are doing it wrong.
