REVIEWS

 

Critical Rating: AAAAA

This excellent film, which rivals mainstream's Memento for complexity, will undoubtedly receive plenty of pre-noms come November, including Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Supporting Actress (Violet Blue) and one or two sex scenes - but it's a connoisseur's movie whose investment pays off well in drama and emotion.

There are three main storylines: Actress Holly Hollywood's relationship with director/husband Alec Metro - though they're both sexually liberated, he's a control freak, and she eventually chafes under his jealousy and infidelities; the abduction of Eric Masterson's mail-order bride Dasha; and, tying the whole movie together, housewife Violet Blue's online affair with Metro, which contributes to the break-up of his marriage. There's also an essential subplot linking Metro's chauffeur, Tony Tedeschi's girlfriend, Rebecca Love, to the kidnappers.

By far, the best actress here is Blue, whose marriage to cop Rod Fontana is a study in ennui - he can't even satisfy her sexually - until she discovers Metro on the Internet, willingly following his orders to prostitute herself and, later, be his consort at an orgy. The title's implied message may be obscured by the intricacies of the plot, but viewers will savor the excellent performances and several volcanic sexual moments among the 11 sex scenes.
