Movie Reviews: “Sex, Lies, and Videotape

Movie Review: TIME Magazine

Sex, Lies, and Videotape

Talk is the sex of the ’80s. In a time when you can hardly initiate a handshake without a note from your doctor, conversation is not just a white- collar mating dance; it is the most intimate form of safe sex.

Over the telephone or a restaurant table, a man and a woman expose their emotions, exchange seminal fears and desires, make each other laugh and sob — all without touching any organ but the heart. Talk is the consummation devoutly to be wished; no wonder they call it intercourse. It is confession without penance, therapy on the cheap

Movie Review: Rogerebert

Sex, Lies, and Videotape

I have a friend who says golf is not only better than sex, but lasts longer. The argument in “sex, lies, and videotape” is that conversation is also better than sex – more intimate, more voluptuous – and that with our minds we can do things to each other that make sex, that swapping of sweat and sentiment, seem merely troublesome. Of course, this argument is all a mind game, and sex itself, sweat and all, is the prize for the winner. That’s what makes the conversation so erotic.

The movie takes place in Baton Rouge, La., and it tells the story of four people in their early 30s whose sex lives are seriously confused. One is a lawyer named John (Peter Gallagher), who is married to Ann (Andie MacDowell) but no longer sleeps with her.

Early in the film, we hear her telling her psychiatrist that this is no big problem; sex is really overrated, she thinks, compared to larger issues such as how the Earth is running out of places to dispose of its garbage. Her husband does not, however, think sex is overrated and is conducting a passionate affair with his wife’s sister, Cynthia (Laura San Giacomo), who has always resented the goody-goody Ann.

Movie Review: Creative Loafing

Sex, Lies, and Videotape

espite a rating that allows for viewing by children, despite the animated nature of the piece, and despite the focus on our cuddly canine companions, Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs is decidedly not one for the kiddies. In a pinch, parents are probably better off exposing their youngsters to Fifty Shades Freed – at least in that film, there are no shots of a dog’s skeletal remains, the result of nobody being able to get the poor mutt’s locked cage door open. On the other hand, adults are encouraged to check out Isle of Dogs at their earliest convenience. Anderson’s first film since his grandly entertaining gem The Grand Budapest Hotel is a dazzling and heady achievement, employing quirky animation to relate its tale of a futuristic Japan in which all dogs have been confiscated to nearby Trash Island after a canine-related virus has swept through the country.
