Ah, NC-17. Possibly one of the dumber ratings out there. The concept is great! Tag movies, like this, that aren't made for kids but are for an adult audience, with a rating that keeps kids away. In principle this is great! In execution, it's been deeply flawed. Newspapers won't advertise films with this rating, most reviewers won't review them, and studios won't generally allow them to be released. It's to the credit of Fox that they allowed this rather nice little movie to be put out uncut (though …

Pros: The Edith Piaf song at the end      Cons: Throw a dart, it's all bad      The Bottom Line: Don't bother. If you want porn, rent porn.      Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot.      I imagine there is a time, early in the process, where those who conceive and begin construction of a film realize that they picked a poor topic and need to start again.

The movie is beautifully shot in pastel hues and soft light, complementing the surprising amounts of.........o my gosh............ nudity. Themes of incest, bisexuality, suicide, love, hate, violence and passive resistance are both explicitly explored and subtly hinted at. Large parts of the movie are unexpected, unpredictable and frequently hilarious, reflecting the spontaneity of youth, and the fantastic imagination of the director. It's also a challenging movie about idealism, society and the …

Pros: Compelling plot, beautiful cinematography, stellar acting.     Cons: Relationship between the twins not fully explored.     The Bottom Line: A different turn of the bound of twins.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot. At the end of The Dreamers, I was not sure what to think. What had played out before me was at once sensual, sexual, erotic—but not overly so—sinfully voyeuristic, and …

THE DREAMERS has certainly polarized viewers: those who are devoted Bertolucci fans welcome this very unique work and those who object to viewing explicit youthful sensual exploration loathe it. Taken in the vein of Bertolucci's output, it is more a youthful version of his LAST TANGO IN PARIS and as such it is a rather quiet, elegiac exploration of the needs and desires of the disenfranchised youth of the 1960s. The love triangle here is played out by brother/sister Theo/Isabelle ( Louis Garrel …

Pros: cinematography, mise-en-scene, gorgeous actors, soundtrack     Cons: screenplay, kinky themes and visuals could creep some people out     The Bottom Line: Voyeurism, incest, revolutions, and French cinema. This is Hardcore! Jarvis Cocker would love this movie.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. By definition, moviegoers are voyeurs. They pay their $9.00 or so to experience two hours of pleasure …
