Movie Info

Joe Swanberg and Adam Wingard's Autoerotic follows four interconnected Chicago couples as they explore the boundaries of self-pleasure and sexual exploration. Through a unique blend of outrageous comedy and in-your-face sex, Autoerotic insightfully illuminates the private sexual lives of America's urbanites. -- IFC

The acting style is so blase as to make the material seem boring -- except perhaps for Wingard's emotionally twisted closing chapter.

Yes, there can be too much of a good thing, even sex.

Its tone is quietly comical, with each chapter treated as an extended joke, or as an R-rated O. Henry story angling toward a neat concluding twist.

There are are flashes of sexual insight amid the movie's lovely, deceptively complex compositions and smartly deployed songs, but overall Autoerotic is as vaporous and vaguely dissatisfying as a negotiated quickie before work.

the cinematic equivalent to farting during sex

Not dynamically acted, but nonetheless an engaging, streamlined, dryly comedic thematic exercise, further held together and unified by a lurking, almost voyeuristic visual scheme.

If only (Swanberg) explored his characters as much as his characters explore themselves.

The film ultimately promises controversial content too literally, and through tediously normative form.
